Group faults RevolutionNow protesters over calls for Buhari’s resignation
A pan socio-cultural group, Nigeria First, has condemned the purported rally by Omoyele Sowore-led RevolutionNow movement demanding for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation.
According to the group, Sowore, “having failed legitimately to become president, aims to make the country ungovernable for the current administration, not minding the consequences.”
The Nigeria First movement made these known at a press conference in Abuja.
The group’s Deputy President, Ndubisi Nwogu, noted that the self-acclaimed activist is not acting in isolation.
Mr Nwogu revealed that the “Sahara Reporters founder has the backing of both local and international saboteurs who are pained with the level of sustainable growth and development experienced in Nigeria under President Buhari.”
He added that the “call for President Buhari’s resignation is part of the overall plot and in the weeks and months ahead, more and more attempts to destabilize the country would surface.”
The group, therefore, “warned Sowore to desist from this ignoble quest which by all intents and purposes would serve the interest of his paymasters.”
It further cautioned that the former presidential hopeful would be held responsible should there be a breakdown of law and order in the country.
Nwogu, however, urged all well-meaning Nigerians to rise in defence of the country in this “critical period of our existence by calling to question the motives of Sowore and his goons in their antics towards misleading the unsuspecting members of the general public”.
“The leadership of Nigeria First believes that recent events in the country indeed calls for caution from all relevant stakeholders at the risk of the country erupting in flames at the behest of some unscrupulous elements that are bent on destabilizing the country for reasons best known to them,” Nwogu said.
“It is indeed despicable that some individuals and organizations would elect to throw caution in the wind by actively promoting causes that would divide the country in a most reckless manner and at the chagrin of our peace and unity as a country.
“Nigeria First as a pan-sociocultural group is reiterating that recent events in the country are assuming a dangerous dimension, especially with the call for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari by no group other than the Omoyele Sowore led RevolutionNow Movement.
“It is indeed obvious that Omoyele Sowore is the brain behind the despicable rally, which is a resurgence of his infamous call for a nationwide revolution in the country that was hugely a flop some months back.”
