Revolution Now: Islamic group speaks on calls for change of Buhari Govt

Published on August 7, 2019 By Wale Odunsi

The Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC), has opposed calls for revolution in Nigeria and change of President Muhammadu Buhari government.

Its Director, Professor Ishaq Akintola, in a statement on Wednesday, said the proponents were hasty in assessing the current administration considering the number of years the opposition was in power.

Noting that MURIC had called for the release or arraignment of Omoyele Sowore, leader of Revolution Now movement, Akintola noted that the conveners have lost touch with reality.

“How do you judge an administration which is yet to take off in its second term? What are the criteria the #Revolutionnow group has used to arrive at its hardline position?, he quipped.

“This is an administration that was ambushed, strangulated and sarakitised from the first day of its inauguration in May 2015. Are they blind to history? Today was born from the wombs of yesterday.

‘Why can’t they take a glance at where this administration is coming from? Have they forgotten how the 8th National Assembly (NASS) held the Buhari administration by the jugular for four good years?

“So what has changed since then? How much time has Buhari spent in his second term? He has not even taken off. Wednesday 21st August has just been fixed for the swearing-in of ministers. Why won’t they allow this government to settle down? Who is afraid of Buhari? Whose cupboard is full of skeletons? Why are they in so much haste?

“Does it mean that both the leaders and supporters of #Revolutionnow were pleased with the sarakitisation of Buhari’s first term? Where really do they stand in the war against corruption? Where were they when the 8th Senate delayed budget for seven whole months?

“We put it to #Revolutionnow that it has misplaced its priorities and failed to identify the true enemies of Nigeria. #Revolutionnow should have organized its uprising against the 8th NASS. By the way, where were they during the general elections that brought Buhari to power? How did they fare? Is it proper to change by force what the ballots refused to grant?

“Sowore is a good material for future politicking but he has to redirect his energy towards reengineering Nigerian youth for service, patriotism and dignity, not towards removing a democratically elected government.

“We advise #Revolutionnow to dismantle, dissolve into a political party and wait for 2023. Even a coup will not pay the group. Coups are no longer fashionable. The Buhari regime is not a product of violent change. It evolved via due democratic process.

“Any other process is therefore unlawful, illegal, illegitimate and unconstitutional. In view of Buhari’s sterling qualities and his numerous fait accompli in spite of all odds, we affirm clearly, unambiguously and categorically that Mr. President has our vote of confidence."

When the current administration were busy making promises to Nigerians during the 2015 election and recent election, were the drunk? Are they not the ones that told Nigerians that any serious government will fix the power situation in 6months? were they high on carbon monoxide when they were making promises of 3millions job creations? Were they sniffing inside the shoes that have been worned for 6months without cleaning when the said they will fight Boko Haram from the front? Were they not the proponents of occupy Nigeria?... Using force at the slightest provacation... Progressive party my foot...

You and your type are one of the many problems of this country. To please you guys is impossible. The prof called for Sowore's release and you criticise him, i am sure you would have still criticised him had it been he had a contrary opinion.

What exactly is your problem?

If you think that man has sense, then I don't know what to think about you. He opposes Revolution by well meaning Nigerians but kept quiet when his Zazaky brothers were fighting the military and security forces in Abuja?

So because PDP spent 16yrs in office then we should now allow Apc to spend their own 16yrs before we can start reacting, what is happened in Nigeria During pdp was nothing compared to this hell Apc has brought upon Nigeria

You know that Apc has done worst to Nigeria but because of what you gain and of your religious beliefs and tribe you still kept calm and be supporting Apc may thunder strike you death may you die a painful death

too many fools in this damn country, sowore knew even a dunce president would arrest anyone calling for government colapse, he knows going to new york to visit treasonous fugitive Kanu makes him a target of investigation, he knows making a video of threats of violence and setting himself ablaze was like begging for arrest..

Fvck this fake ass General called Buhari, i wish General Olusegun Obasanjo was the president or General Abacha, because once sowore works away freely more violent people would spring up demanding alsort ot trash just to cause chaos

You don't want to judge an administration from its first four years?

Tufiakwa!!
FYI
Akintola, so long as one Nigeria exists, things shall get worse than this.

Don't lead my Yoruba friends and fiends to be like passengers in a sinking ship who clutch tightly to the hip because the ship is carrying valuables.
