Buhari Group Knocks Soyinka, Falana, Others Over Comments On Sowore’s Arrest by agwom(m): 9:31pm On Aug 05, 2019
The Buhari Media Organisation (BMO) has asked Nobel Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, Femi Falana (SAN) and other Nigerians who condemned the arrest of leader of ‘RevolutionNow’, Omoyele Sowore to retrace their steps. In a statement on Monday by its chairman, Niyi Akinsiju and Secretary, Cassidy Madueke, the BMO specifically flayed Soyinka, Falana and some civil society organisations for allegedly encouraging what it said was capable of igniting a large scale violence in the country.

The BMO said highly placed and influential Nigerians should always exercise restraint and decorum while reacting to public issues so as not to escalate existing tension in the polity.

“We note with satisfaction that the Federal Government has taken the appropriate steps towards stopping these misguided elements from instigating a violent overthrow of a constitutionally-elected government. “There is a constitutional means of changing government in Nigeria, and as a country that recently held democratic elections at both the state and federal levels, therefore there’s no basis for any group of people to seek other means of changing a sitting and legally-constituted government.

“Perhaps we need to remind Professor Soyinka and his co-travellers that the security agencies do not usually go out of their way to arrest people except in situations where there are glaring evidence that such people, through their actions or utterances, pose inherent risk to the unity and corporate existence of the country.

“In the case of Sowore’s arrest, there is the need to remind Soyinka, Falana and others that the Directorate of State Services (DSS) had established a link between Sowore and some foreigners, as well as some Nigerians, who are bent on causing disaffection in Nigeria with an intent to benefit from the conflagration that may arise therefrom. “We consider it hypocritical on the part of the critics for being blind to the potential danger that the activities of Sowore and company posed to the country with their misguided attempt to cause havoc in the country,” the BMO said.

A MUST READ.

THE REVOLUTION THEY REFUSED TO DO WHEN IT WAS NEEDED MOST.

✔ When militants were busy bombing and destroying oil installations and then polluting the entire Niger Delta environment between the year 1997 to 2016, where was your revolution?

✔ When the same militants began kidnapping foreign investors in the year 2000 and later resorted to kidnapping Nigerian citizens for ransom after the foreigners ran away, where was your revolution?

✔ When opposition politicians were being specifically targeted for assassination between the year 2002 to 2014, where was your revolution?

✔ When they were busy buying private jets and building expensive private universities and gigantic personal libraries with funds stolen from us, where was your revolution?

✔ When they sold NEPA/PHCN to themselves in 2013 and continued to rip us off our monies without giving us electricity, you didn't think of revolution!

✔ When just one box was found containing 14 billion naira worth of jewellery for a thieving female minister recently, you didn't think of revolution when the theft and squandermania was going on between 2010 to 2015!

✔ When they killed NITEL and our numerous textile factories since 2001, your revolution was missing!

✔ When they killed Nigeria Airways without even paying off the workers, your revolution mind was where?

✔ When airplanes were falling down almost every month in Nigeria, killing hundreds of people at each fall, and the only explanation Femi Fani-Kayode who was the minister of aviation at that time gave was that it was caused by cultists in government, where was your revolution to remove the cultists out of power?

✔ When they sank billions of dollars of public funds in NEPA/PHCN and gave you darkness even before they sold it off to themselves, where was your revolution?

✔ When they stole your monies and built palatable edifices for their families, concubines, whores or girlfriends, where was your revolution?

✔ When they were selling crude oil at $140 per barrel and yet couldn't pay workers for upwards of 14 months, where was your revolution?

✔ When our health institutions went comatose, and doctors, nurses and other medical workers were always on strike, where was your revolution?

✔ When ASUU strikes lasted up to 9 months nonstop to over 14 months sometimes, there was no revolution from you! Why?

✔ When Nigeria Airways staff were dying due to nonpayment of their benefits for over 20 years, where was your revolution?

✔ When the 2nd Niger Bridge was commissioned on mere paper twice but which tens of billions of naira was looted and squandered in its name, where was your revolution?

✔ When our railways were left dead and rusty, and our roads across the country were abandoned such that they became huge craters and hundreds of billions of naira were being looted annually in the name of building new ones, where was your revolution?

✔ When 20 people alone are owing me and you about 5 trillion naira public money in AMCON, where was your revolution?

✔ When a former First Lady's total amount forfeited to government can be divided amongst 774 local governments for 220 million naira each, where was your revolution?

✔ When 23 people, under the instruction of President Jonathan, looted and shared $2.1 billion funds meant for fighting Boko Haram, resulting in tens of thousands of deaths, where was your revolution?

✔ When over 20 people died during the Nigeria Immigration Service jobs scam in 2014, where was your revolution?

✔ When stealing was not corruption, and was effectively legalised to the point that it was a crime to be honest in any office in Nigeria between 1999 and 2015, where was your revolution?

✔ When poverty reached an all-time high of 112 million people in 2012 and 130 million in 2013 according to World Bank data, where was your revolution? It is when the figure has reduced to 88 million people in 2018, according to the same World Bank, that you are talking of revolution?

✔ Between 2010 and early 2015, we were being bombed and killed in hundreds and even thousands almost daily in Abuja, Kaduna, Kano, Zaria, Jos, Bauchi, Azare, Misau, Gombe, Maiduguri, Damaturu, Potiskum, Yola, Mubi, Gwoza, Bama, Buni-Yadi, Kala Balge, and many other towns and communities in northern Nigeria! Where was your revolution at that time?

Someone is diligently cleaning all of that mess now, and you are now shouting REVOLUTION on behalf of the very thieves and plunderers who created and sustained all of that mess for 16 solid years? Who the hell do you think you are to think we will let you railroad us back to the rape and plunder of our beloved country in the name of a wacky revolution?

I just wanna make some common sense!


God bless Nigeria.

This is the real BMO, those ones that full Nairaland few months ago that have gone hiding were hired for 30k per month. But BMO Nairaland's residence zombies are still putting up some words with hope that someone that knows somebody who knows someone that is related to Buhari will table their case before him.
