Junaid Mohammed, a lawmaker from the Second Republic and also a poet, brushed off the RevolutionNow protest called by the African Action Congress, AAC, 2019 presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore.
Talking with newsmen, Mohammed defined the protest of RevolutionNow as a farce and pointless undertaking that should be dismissed.
Recall that the Department of State Services, DSS, had arrested Sowore after he called for a revolution.
Despite Sowore’s arrest, the protest was held in pockets of locations.
Reacting to the protest, Mohammed insisted that there was a sinister motive behind the call for the protest, stressing that Sowore lacks understanding of the true meaning of revolution.
He said: “This whole call for RevolutionNow is meaningless and a charade, I think there is a sinister motive and there is a need to expose those who are behind this. The call was so quick, Sowore’s case was disposed of only last month after he went through the charade of forming a party and becoming the presidential candidate, went to Rivers to install a candidate there and within one month they have now revolved into a revolution.
“Sowore is now the one calling for a revolution, if you call for a revolution against a state or government, it means you don’t believe in it right? And want changes by some kind of violence which is a revolution.
“After you participate in an election and never won even a ward then you are now calling for a revolution, please who is fooling who? I think Sowore needs to go back to school and read what revolution is all about.
“This man’s action has difficult lives for those of us who want a shift of power in this nation and has also complex life for those who truly want to carry out a revolution that is not a tea party, it’s a very severe business with life and death engaged.
“What I find hilarious about some of these extremists is that they don’t understand this country’s complexity.”
