The African Action Congress, AAC and its Presidential candidate in the last General election, Omoleye Sowore, have set Monday, August 5, for the commencement of a massive nationwide protest targeted at seeking “for a better Nigeria.”
Making the disclosure in Abuja, Sowore said that the revolutionary protest becomes inevitable considering the present situation of the country under the current administration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to Sowore, the protest will be sustained until the country is put on the right path of justice and honour.
”The revolution has therefore become inevitable. We did not choose to go for revolution, they chose it by ensuring that there was no level playing field in the last election,” he said.
“As you know, they did it in Sudan and it was started by some women. They were making fun of them but they did not stop until doctors joined them , the Labour Union joined them and what started with five people became 5,000 and 500,000 and became 5,000,000 and the regime fell, ” he submitted.
The ACC Leader also described the last General election in the county as the biggest illegality and fraud perpetrated by the government against Nigerians.
He said: ”The biggest illegality being committed in Nigeria as of today is the rigging of election in 2019. The moment you do not allow people to express their God-given rights to choose their Leaders, you are committing an illegality and inviting resistance.
“Election was an opportunity to carry out a revolution of ballot box but they stole the ballot box. They hijacked materials that were meant for free and fair election and as a result they did not organise any election that was credible enough for people to have faith in the ballot box.”
