Gani Adams warns Buhari, Don’t take Nigerians back to Military Era.
The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Gani Adams released a statement this morning, warning the presidency to released Sowore.
He said Sowore is an activist and part of the struggle for this democracy.
He said the military era is over where people are jailed over issues relating to welfare.
Not everybody can have access to the presidency in Abuja. This is a democracy, not militarism, where people are cowed and jailed over issues relating to their welfare.
Gani Adams – Don’t take Nigerians back to Military Era.
Sowore is an activist, and he was part of the struggle for this democracy.
Therefore, he is entitled to express his feelings and that of Nigerians in a democratic setting. I think the Federal Government should consider his freedom as a panacea for peace. For instance, I wonder how a peaceful protest by harmless citizens will now turn to a treasonable felony.
Unfortunately, many of the people in the corridors of power today were part of the protests against former President Goodluck Jonathan in 2015, but today the situation has changed.
