We stand on with @YeleSowore and defend his constitutional right and freedom to protest any matter of Governance that worries him.

Mr Sowore’s convening of Citizens to protest Poor Governance - via #RevolutionNow- is Constitutionally guaranteed.

Gratitude to his legal team.
Democracy and Voice are Siamese Twins.

The good kind of Siamese Twins.

No one regardless of their position is given the right to shut down Voices like @YeleSowore ‘s for daring to disagree.

How long shall it take before the FG @NigeriaGov understands the
Basics of Democracy?
Our FG @NigeriaGov led by @NGRPresident @MBuhari may think they have ‘caged’ @YeleSowore because he dared to challenge Bad Leadership and Poor Governance through #RevolutionNow.

Not so, actually.

His Idea can never be caged.


You cannot cage an idea whose time has come.

Extrajudicial killings
Certificate forgery
No health care
No respect for rule of law
No freedom of expression
Fulani Herdsmen
Law enforcement fighting each other.
DSS/EFCC are now used to oppress peaceful protesters.
Justice system is completely dead.
Legislators/judiciary now positioned underneath the executive arm of Gov't.
All happening in one country at the same time. Not even one press conference has been held by the Commander in chief to address the state of the nation.
We wake up every morning not knowing whose next on the killing list of the SARS, SACS, SAKS the rogue section of the @PoliceNG .
We have for the first time in Nigeria a vice president @ProfOsinbajo who has proven himself overtime to be more relevant in the market place

That a Presidency @AsoRock and their allies found this unflattering “Fiddling-Nero-type-picture” of the @NGRPresident worthy of public view really does take their celebration of deadly Incompetence to a stratospheric realm.
But then, it really is Governance of tooth-picking👎🏾
Nigeria and Nigerians shall surely survive a warped political culture that emboldens and rewards Incompetence.

@YeleSowore is unconstitutionally and unlawfully detained for calling out the deadly incompetence.

Not even the Judiciary is spared this spread of deadly incompetence.
Here’s the thing.

This level of Incompetence is too costly and unsustainable.

Let @AsoRock and its crew continue to dwell in their Parallel Universe.

The Real World is where our citizens live.

@YeleSowore has raised issues that are never going away until addressed.

Think deep & try to reason out the call for #RevolutionNow maybe we can have at least a good tenable excuse, I still don't see one.
As far as I'm concerned with AVAILABLE FACTS, this is the season of #BuharisReformation
Who are the people against #BuharisReformation and which class in the society does Buhari even belong to?

The #EliteClub of the #RulingElites are against him.
The pompous paper solution educated folks are against him.
The downtrodden supporters of LOOTERS are in also. WHY?
On this platform & others, I've seen deliberate effort in place from time to time since 2015 to rewrite history by media houses & their ANALYSTS with big big grammar.
They keep saying IRONICAL words of "the worst is better than this good".
I dare any of you to mention that past.

I had reasons to frequent Ikeja General Hospital Burn and Trauma Unit early in the year, and It was mixed feelings for me with the state of affairs. Without making excuses for government's ineptitude, friends, the problem we have is beyond normal.
Nigerians are extraordinary! We are a potpourri of good, bad and the very ugly. Isn't ugly that a man was hospitalized and died because he couldn't pay for blood and other things needed for his surgery? He works for government and his department was to cover his surgery expenses.
The surgery is about N360,000 and he has put in paperwork, awaiting approval. His time continued to tick, with the surgery delayed in excess of three weeks when he died, because there was no money. After his death, ~N17 Million; and $12,000, all cash were found in his bedroom.

What you don't know is that experience is not always the best teacher.....not in all cases.
I've seen a deep desire online by many who just want to experience #WarZone.
So let me paint the picture of how it will look like when it comes
Usually this is how war starts & ends:
BEGINNING: People insist they don't want to talk...We must scatter everything!...#WarZone

ENDING: People begin to beg that LET US TALK & end this #WarZone
Yoruba says "you only know the beginning of an issue, you can never tell how it ends
I'm above 40, so I have a little glimpse of how it may look like.
We grew up as kids in Akure seeing what was popularly known as "Ogun Omoboriowo"....
We saw how people were dragged out, they would plead, plead, cry, cry....
The next thing, Tyre...e gbe petrol wa...FIRE...AGONY!

In 2011 violent Buhari told his supporters in a now viral video, “Ku fita ku yi zabe. Ku kasa. Ku tsare. Ku raka. Ku tsaya. Duk wanda bai yarda ba, ku halaka shi!” Rough idiomatic translation: “Go out and participate in the election. Cast your vote. Protect it. Accompany it (to
the collation center). Wait for it (to be counted). All who disagree (with you), kill them!” In the video, his audience gave wild chants in agreement. And scores of people, including "corpers," were murdered in the north. He wasn't prosecuted. Sowore hasn't said anyone be killed,
but Buhari's cowardly DSS operatives are illegally detaining him for "planning" #RevolutionNow. It's Buhari who should be in jail for instigating the mass murder of innocent people. It was Buhari's call for mass murder, which led to actual mass deaths, that was the real terrorism

Alright, folks, here we go on the thread. First, a bit about the Zikist Movement; a name coined by Nwafor Orizu, the Nnewi Prince, in his book, Without Bitterness. Second, a background on the politics that birthed the Zikist Movement. Thread》》》
I begin with the second. First, an apology: the tweets in this thread are basically products of my memory and where there're innacuracies as to dates of events and names of personages, please, forgive me.
The history of Nigeria's anti-colonial struggles cannot be complete without a mention of the role of the Zikist Movement, a movement established as a response to the lethargy that had lulled the pro-independence movement into inaction

Soon, Nigerians on social media will get to the point where killing a suicide bomber before he's able to detonate a bomb in a market, will be termed extrajudicial. We have fully imbibed mixing prisms between 'social justice' and 'criminal justice'.
I saw @eyooekpo's reaction to police handling of persons accused of beating up officials of Enugu Disco in the cause of their lawful duties. Man!! Like police should have lured the assailants to an arrest with banana caramel Coldstone, with waffles? 🤣
I run the risk of being demonized as endorsing police brutality, but one day, we'd irredeemably regret not knowing there are more armed civilians waiting to harm us, than police would. Police brutality should be condemned in its entirety, but cases should be debated factually.

I’m sore disappointed in the IG @PoliceNG for yet another blunder adding to his debut of returning criminal tactical squads to status quo to reinforce impunity. He’s failed to bring a single killer Fulani Herdsman to book yet he’s calling peaceful protest an act of terrorism?! 🙄
Now we have to launch an enquiry into the educational qualification of the IGP. It is a sad day for Nigeria indeed. We can finally connect the dots for the rationale behind the impunity ridden police institution that has pitched itself against the people as an ethnic brigade.
Unfortunately, it’s not in the place of @PoliceNG to re-write our constitution or determine the rights of the citizenry under their new ethnic rule in the name of regime security. This we’ll RESIST. You don’t just throw words around as it pleases your agenda. This is a democracy.

Let be warn you, that is IF your ears are working.
What is being packaged to you as #RevolutionNow is actually the #CodeName for coup d'état.

Remember I told you that REVOLUTION ALREADY HAPPENED!👇👇
Don't say I didn't warn you, what the likes of @YeleSowore is packaging for you with the backing of International donors & their tools like @AmnestyNigeria on ground is actually a coup d'état after the real #RevolutionNow had taken place.
It's a #CodeName
"The phrase coup d'état comes from French, literally meaning a "stroke of state" or "blow against the state". In French, the word État (French: [eta]), denoting a sovereign political entity, is capitalized"...
seizure of power,overthrow, takeover, ousting,regime change!

It is not a protest:
A statement or action expressing disapproval of or objection to something..

It was called REVOLUTION: "a forcible overthrow of a government or social order, in favour of a new system"
I listened to @YeleSowore where he said "a Nigeria where 5 people is richer than 200 million people, ko le work".....and this is the need for #RevolutionNow.
Ok, So how is this statement linked to the present leadership of Buhari as the head of Govt? HOW?
I also saw on @YeleSowore TL a statement that was poitining to the reason why #RevolutionNow is needed by one Comrade Nosa saying...“On August 5th we are going to ask our terrible leaders to “take a bow and get out”.

So the purpose is getting clearer!

All well-meaning Nigerians should stand with @YeleSowore and defend his constitutional right and freedom to protest any matter of Governance that worries him.

Mr Sowore’s convening of Citizens to protest Poor Governance - via #RevolutionNow- is Constitutionally guaranteed.
If our @NGRPresident @MBuhari & FG @AsoRock are not completely out of touch with the reality of distress of majority of Citizens of this country, they would handle @YeleSowore ‘s right to convene #RevolutionNow wisely.

Many of us his fellow #OfficeOfTheCitizen stand with him.
I therefore join the voices of all well-meaning Nigerians to ask @AsoRock @NGRPresident @MBuhari to:

#IStandWithYeleSowore. ✍🏾✍🏾

Don't tell me you missed the #RevolutionNow that had happened already🙄🤪🤣
That was when I referred to Amaechi as the GOC of Common Sense Revolution.....It happened in 2015 when we sacked PDP and Jonathan!

"In political science, a revolution (Latin: revolutio, "a turn around") is a fundamental & relatively sudden change in political power & political organization which occurs when the population revolts against the government, typically due to perceived oppression".
Now, that SPONTANEOUS action by NIGERIANS across the 774 LGAs in 2015 was the clear definition of #RevolutionNow
Many VOWED that it would never happen, but nobody could stop an idea whose time has come.
That's the #SpiritOfRevolution, you don't CAJOLE people into it...#Change

This Government of Buhari keeps acting as though they have no security reports of this conspiracy that goes on daily.
They use @AmnestyNigeria, & Osai @livingtruely is their face HERE
@AmnestyNigeria @livingtruely This conspiracy is multi dimensional and it became very obvious before #NigeriaDecides2019 when "Election Observers" in alliance with international conspirators were doing everything to topple this Govt. by usurping the authority of @inecnigeria .
@ClementNwankwo of PDP led this!
@AmnestyNigeria @livingtruely Apart from the influential figures that are obviously doing everything behind the scene to topple this Govt. because Atiku was not INSTALLED, 8% of the print & electronic media both online & offline are very active on this conspiracy. The leading platform is @channelstv.
