    They made this call at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Ojota, Lagos, during the second day of the nationwide protests against the removal of subsidy on fuel by the Federal Government.
    Addressing the crowd, Bakare said the Goodluck Jonathan administration had demonstrated its lack of competence in tackling corruption and other problems, including the insecurity facing the country.
    He said President Jonathan’s refusal to bow to the will of the citizens, who were calling for the reversal of the fuel pump price to N65, amounted to disrespect to the citizens’ sovereign power.
    The cleric said, “In every nation, the sovereignty belongs to the people of the nation. You gave power to Jonathan. He has opened his mouth to say that there is Boko Haram in his bedroom and in his government. He is telling us that he cannot even protect himself.
    “Any government that lacks competence; any government that is corrupt cannot lead this country. On behalf of the people of Nigeria, we fire Jonathan from office. Jonathan you are fired! I serve quit notice on Jonathan on behalf of the people of this country.â€
