SocialJustice:
Sowore is a fraud. If he succeeds to get power, he will also continue the status quo. He's a political jobber. He doesn't genuinely care about the Nigerian on the street.

I can't start explaining in detail how I arrived at this conclusion. But trust me, he is after his personal not public goal.

I will take a man who has spent his life and time fighting for the better of Nigeria. Sowore's history is a testament for him. No need to talk too much.

A tree does not make a forest, and labels such as i am from this tribe or from that Religion, only makes the oppressors stronger. This are what were used to divide people.

I think you have Conjured this perfect excuse, to Justify Cowardice, in its best form.
Seems for you it had to be a specific demand, and that is what you define as revolution. Is that how revolution in Russia was done or in the Arab Spring.

Newboss:


Carrying placards doesn't solve any problem. We all know that. You have to make clear demands.

Every revolution has a plan. It could be to remove the president, or demand a change of government from dictatorship to democracy, or demand some specific things.

If Sowore had clear demands, no one will bother him. His demands are not clear. He's not saying anything that can solve problems. He has not said what the specific goals of this revolution thing are and what changes the government should implement. The government will only ask you, what do you want us to do? What are your specific demands? You want to fix the country, what are the specific things you want to be done?

For example, a revolution to end SARS is well spelt out. A revolution to decrease tax is well spelt out. We're going to keep doing this until SARS is eradicated and taxes are decreased. That's clear.

Sowore is not saying anything specific. Beware of someone who's like that. They could be using you to achieve their selfish goals. In cases like this, something like a coup is usually the plan of the conveners, which is why they remain silent on their ultimate plan. The protest is just a means to a specific end. Once that specific end is reached, then we sheath our swords. What is that specific end? The silence is too loud

Let me help You, i just got this from wikipedia, as a start.

n political science, a revolution (Latin: revolutio, "a turn around"wink is a fundamental and relatively sudden change in political power and political organization which occurs when the population revolts against the government, typically due to perceived oppression (political, social, economic) or political incompetence.[1] In book V of the Politics, the Ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle (384–322 BC) described two types of political revolution:

Skepticus:


The id-yot I mentioned is one of the reasons why I wouldn't want Sowore to protest.

Nigerians love and fear their oppressors. They deserve much worse than what they are getting now.

Loving their oppressors is an understatement the enjoy being a submissive slaves to man while blaming God over their foolishness but forgot they have common sense to free themselves.

Complete change from one constitution to another
Modification of an existing constitution.[2]
Revolutions have occurred through human history and vary widely in terms of methods, duration and motivating ideology. Their results include major changes in culture, economy and socio-political institutions, usually in response to perceived overwhelming autocracy or plutocracy.

Scholarly debates about what does and does not constitute a revolution center on several issues. Early studies of revolutions primarily analyzed events in European history from a psychological perspective, but more modern examinations include global events and incorporate perspectives from several social sciences, including sociology and political science. Several generations of scholarly thought on revolutions have generated many competing theories and contributed much to the current understanding of this complex phenomenon.

Nigeria is irredeemable.
We can actually try , it apparently appear so . But this struggle can inspire us .. and we can actually contribute through virtual avenue and social media .. if you watch from distance you ill cry more . I leave in united state actually but the passion is still with mother land .

Sowore is in Nigeria fighting for emancipation of the masses....organising a peaceful protest for liberation..

On the other hands....Nnamdi Cownu has gone on self-exile extorting and exploiting his fellow Mugu Biafraudn brothers and sisters to fight for nonsense struggle.....
Biafra people go say dey don't have interest in Nigeria and at the same time dem go say that they want the presidential seat in 2023 election.....they are confused people .....they don't know what they really want...

Did you really study those revolutions you just mentioned? Their demands were so loud the deaf could hear them, and so clear that the blind could see them.

Give us good governance is vague. Government will tie wrapper, come out and ask you, what are you talking about? The looting? EFCC and ICPC are working on them. The insecurity? The military and police are working on it. And so on. No one can give you anything beyond that.

But if you say "Buhari must go, SARS must go, VAT must go down, sack the military chiefs,...", then you're saying something we can discuss.

We all know the problems, what do you want to be done? Be very specific with your demands. Don't just say "End insecurity, looting,...". Those are mere wishes.

Sowore is appealing to emotions. He's playing a very old game. Be logical my brother. Ask questions, and make sure you get specific answers

Oga this is yoruba revolution or maybe yoruba and hausafulanis revolution.



Igbos are not joining you in any revolution.
If something bad happen along the line now,yorubas and northerns will withdraw and tag it Igbo revolution against their son,Buhari/Osibanjo.


Just like they tag 1966 Military coup as Igbo coup.

The summary of what you should stated is that every revolution has clear demands. You said change of constitution, is that not a very specific demand?

It's like asking someone to change the way he talks. How? Change it how? What and what should I change in the way I talk? Give me something that I can work with. That's what a revolution is.

Make clear demands. List them. Make them crystal clear. Put them everywhere, saying "These are our demands. These are the changes we want implemented". Then revolt until those demands are met.

BlackLivesMatter protests still ongoing in USA, three good months after....The protesters resisted the police, the military and even the National guard. They weather against tear gas, bullets, beatings and all sorts of brutalities from security agencies...and yet, they did not back down.
That protests has achieved lot of reformations in USA, laws are being changed in States and all sectors are removing anything that promotes racism .

Now in Nigeria, we keep shouting bad governance and all....and we are waiting for a "Jesus" to sacrifice his/her life, while we sit at the comfort of our homes, sipping burukutu...Make we continue ooo...We are not tired of bad governance in this country....when we are truly tired....We will be ready to dare consequences of forceful change
Honestly, they have used that "God will help us" to brainwash us all. As if the Israelites in the Bible didn't goto war and were basically praying.

If you're killed the highest they can do is to TREND your name on twitter for few hours and many will even use your trending name to sell their products on twitter.... The next week they will put up BBNAIJA OR ORGANISE ANOTHER REALITY TV SHOW DIVERT THEIR ATTENTION

Nigerians needs psychological cleansing before they can understand they are in danger in the current sate of nigeria and appreciate people who wants better for Nigeria

Sowore should state them. He doesn't have. What he has said so far are not actionable. They're mere mumblings. The same kind of mumblings Buhari had before he became president. Those are not just useless, but counterproductive.

Look at all those revolutions again, they all had clear and actionable demands. I support violent protests, AKA, revolution. But a revolution without clear and actionable demands is as counterproductive as setting a forest on fire in dry season.
