The 2019 African Action Congress, AAC, presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, faltered the RevolutionNow protest which was held on Tuesday, the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum, AYCF speaks .
Speaking exclusively to SPORTYWAP.COM , AYCF President-General, Yerima Shettima described the RevolutionNow protest as “meaningless”.
Yerima insisted that dialogue should be employed in resolving Nigeria’s challenges and not revolution.
He, however, appealed to the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government to release Sowore.
According to Yerima: “I do not agree with the calling for revolution now, I think it’s meaningless. We all can sit with the government at a round table to trash out issues affecting Nigerians. I strongly feel the call for a revolution at this period is meaningless.
“This government has failed to attend to some issues affecting Nigerians but calling for a revolution is not the answer, what we need is dialogue.
“At this point, this country does not need such action, we should all be rallying around and making sure these issues are resolved.
“I am one of those who strongly criticize this government because it has failed, but I urge the government to play fast and loose with justice and release Sowore from custody.”
