You and I do know that Omoyele Sowore, a Nigerian, human rights activist, journalist, pro-democracy campaigner, is presently the primary man trending throughout the globe.
Good copy on-line, unhealthy copy for Nigeria, my beloved nation. Sowore, founding father of Saharareporters, an internet information portal was arrested by DSS operatives August 3, 2019.
Since then, the unconventional man, who was arrested for planning to close down Nigeria together with his RevolutionNow, nationwide protest has been his cooling his toes within the detention amenities of the Nigerian secret police.
Born February, 16, 1971, in Ondo state, south-west Nigeria, Sowore, a graduate of College of Lagos, and Columbia College, contested for the final presidential election on the platform of the African Motion Congress and misplaced to Buhari.
However, he’s the one which has been trending within the typical and social media within the final couple of month and world leaders in developed and growing nations are watching, ready and praying for Buhari to do the needful.
The needful is off-course for the Nigerian authorities to order DSS to launch Sowore in obedience to court docket orders.
Off-course you and I do know the rationale why this radical writer of saharareporters is trending.
Nigerian authorities with Muhammadu Buhari, because the president, mentioned Sowore deliberate to topple the current regime together with his revolutionary now nationwide protest.
Can Sowore, a bloody civilian, who was the presidential candidate of the African Motion Congress (ACC) within the final election, had been he scored a mere 33, 953 votes, nationwide, which got here to 0.12% of the votes solid, overthrow major-general Muhammadu Buhari.
Based mostly on studies, Sowore and The Punch newspaper had been ‘used’ by the identical APC to topple the federal government of Goodluck Jonathan. I should not have the details and can’t subsequently affirm this.
It’s payback time now to the Saharareporters and his co-travelers. Is it a used and dumped problem?
However, final week, Victoria Ibezim-Ohaeri, government director, Areas-for-change, instructed journalists, activists and others in Lagos, that the Buhari-led regime is quick seen to be degenerating to dictatorship in phrases and deeds in latest instances.
On the occasion, she referred to as on the Muhammadu Buhari-led authorities to re-connect to her pledge to the worldwide neighborhood and residents to uphold human freedom and values.
Ibezim-Ohaeri mentioned that as captured by http://www.closingspaces.org, below the platform of The Motion Group On Civic Area, which S-4-C is without doubt one of the members, acknowledged that there’s an alarming document of focused assaults on dissenting voices.
Her phrases: “Human rights defenders, protesters, journalists, and activists like: Dadiya, Agba Jalingo, IG Wale, Omoyele Sowore, James Abiri, have been forcefully kidnapped, shot, maliciously arrested, detained and slammed with all types of prices.
However, the reality is: Can Sowore, a bloody civilian has the capability and the audacity past the protest to overthrow the federal government of major-Basic Muhammadu Buhari? I don’t suppose so. Infact, the unconventional journalist can’t.
