President Mohammed Buhari government received lots of public criticism in its first four years in office.
Surprisingly, the President was able to pull off a massive victory in the February elections.
The election results did not go down well with lots of folks.
Atiku Abubukar, the presidential aspirant of the opposition party, did not concede defeat, and he’s still battling the results in the courts.
Omoyele Sowore, a human right activist has taken to the streets to cause changes. One of his line of actions is to stage a #RevolutionNow today, 5th August 2019.
The protest is designed to showcase displeasure in the country’s governance and bad leadership.
It’s important to note that Omoyele Sowore has been arrested a couple of times in the past for activism and he is one of the few Nigerians who is standing up for the truth to challenge the undemocratic nature of the present administration.
In the 1980s and 1990s, Sowore took part in several students demonstrations to challenge the Nigerian government.
The political landscape in the country is pretty tensed up, and the series of events which will take place in the coming days would likely change the course of democracy in the country.
