Presidency has praised Nigerians for ‘Ignoring’ the #RevolutionNow protests

The Nigerian Presidency has praised Nigerians for
‘Ignoring’ the #RevolutionNow protests Organized
by Sahara Reporters Founder, Omoyele Sowore,
who is currently being detained by the
Department of State Security Services, DSS.
Below is a statement signed by Presidential
media aide, Garba Shehu, sent to POLITICS
NIGERIA;
“Today, millions of Nigerians went about their
businesses: work, seeking employment, attending
schools/colleges and caring for their families. By
doing so, the millions defended our country’s
hard-won democratic rights – by ignoring calls on
social media to join a phantom ‘revolution’.”
“There were a few hundred persons today who,
for their own reasons, decided to act upon the
demands of a group calling itself Global Coalition
for Security and Democracy in Nigeria, which went
on social media to ask everyday Nigerians to
overthrow the government they only elected some
six months ago.
“The President is humbled by the support – not
for himself, or the governing party – but for the
democratic values of modern-day Nigeria through
the wisdom of those millions of citizens who
preferred democracy and decided not to
undermine an elected government.
“Today, joining those millions of Nigerians was
not only the President and governing party at
Federal level, but many state governments from
the opposition, trade unions, civil society
organisations, media and NGOs with focus on
freedom of speech. All have, rightly, united in
protecting Nigeria’s young democracy and the
rights of all to elect leaders and lawmakers.
“The Global Coalition for Security and Democracy
in Nigeria’s attempt to incite citizens into a
revolution against their own democratic rights and
interests has failed – as will all attempts to take
away from the people their hard-won rights and
freedom to choose who leads their country.’
