Members of Citizen United for Peace and Stability today, April 26, besieged the National Assembly following a reported closed-door meeting between President Muhammadu Buhari and ten senators in the Senate. 

The protesters who marched from the Unity fountain arrived the main entrance of the National Assembly around 11: am.

The protest, according Daily Trust, forced the security personnel at the National Assembly to lock the main gate.

The protesters carried flag of the country and placards that reads: "Saraki must go", "Enough is enough", among others.

The youths made up of various Civil Society Organisations and students, were also demanding that the federal lawmakers should immediately revisit the grey areas identified in the 2016 budget by President Muhammadu Buhari.

They also asked 36 senators who had so far collected their own exotic jeeps to return them immediately or face the wrath of Nigerians.

The civil society organization in one voice, called for the immediate resignation of the Senate President Bukola Saraki, over the myriad of corruption cases preferred against, the purchase of SUVs for senators at exorbitant price, as well as an alleged attempt to frustrate the 2016 national budget. According to the protester, they will not stop in their protest until Saraki tenders his resignation letter.
