What Buhari should do to Sowore, RevolutionNow conveners – Moghalu

Kingsley Moghalu, the 2019 Young Progressives Party, YPP, presidential candidate, has weighed in on the arrest of the convener of RevolutionNow protest, Omoyele Sowore.

Akelicious recalls that DSS arrested Sowore over the weekend after he called for a nationwide staging of protests against what he described as a bad governance.

The arrest of the 2019 presidential candidate of the AAC has since stirred reactions from well-meaning Nigerians. The protest, he tagged “Revolution Now”, was planned to take place on Monday, August 5.

Reacting to his former rival’s arrest, in a post on his Twitter page, Moghalu urged the DSS to release Sowore, even as he described the state of the nation as ‘sorrowful’.

The former presidential candidate urged President Muhammadu Buhari to call for a dialogue with Sowore and RevolutionNow conveners in order to “allow real electoral reforms”.

According to him, “Our long-suffering countrymen and women have a right to express their disappointment with the sorry state of our country in a peaceful manner. From security to the economy, we are on the brink.

“Aso Rock should embrace dialogue, free Omoyele Sowore and allow REAL electoral reforms.

“I remain committed to a democratic revolution at the ballot box. To that extent I call on all Nigerian to mobilize for and demand fundamental reforms to our electoral system, including e-voting, to ensure transparency, efficiency, and legitimacy in our electoral processes.”

  1. Electoral reforms are good but how do achieve such in a situation like this. The problems with Nigerians is that we put so much President, forgetting that those who kept giving excuses with the president are in charge of our various States and LGAs. Why revolution when u can reach out to the national assembly to do their duties and can always lead a peaceful protests when fail to do so. I believe there are so many ways to reach the president to contribute your quota in his government not by revolution bcos even the conveners will do worsts if they are the ones on that seat.
