Some United States of America-based Nigerians have staged a protest against the visit of Vice President Yemi Osinbajo (SAN) to the country.

Vice President Osinbajo’s visit was to seek global partnerships and support for Nigeria’s recently launched Energy Transition Plan.

During the visit, the Vice President met with his US counterpart, Kamala Harris, who commended him for his commitment.

However, a protest rocked the visit.

The Nigerian protesters, who carried placards with the image of Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho, wore t-shirts with inscriptions such as: “Omo Yoruba ni mi,” which means: “I am a Yoruba child.”

The protesters said: “No light, no food in Nigeria and they come here to get a loan for energy.

“What energy?

“They also borrowed from China.

“We are here to protest against the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, and his entourage.

“The Centre for Global Development is going to address them and we want to tell them no no.

“They want to lend Nigeria the sum of $110 billion and we are here to say no to that.

“No more loan to Nigerian Government.

“Nigeria Government are thieves.

“They are using the money for banditry.”

The protesters started shouting harder when they saw a man who they referred to as one of the delegates from Nigeria alight from a car.

They started shouting: “Ole,” a local name for thief.

One of them said: “They are thieves.

“Tell them to come down from the car.”

However, the other supposed delegates did not alight from the car even as the protesters focused their camera to their vehicles.
