"Activists" Complain As Dawisu Is Listed As A Speaker At 'Soro Soke' Summit by naptu2: 5:45am On Oct 16
Some activists, protesters and opposition figures have complained about the fact that Salihu Tanko Yakasai, popularly known as Dawisu or Peacock, has been listed as a speaker at the Soro Soke Summit, an event that has been put together to mark the first anniversary of the End SARS protests.

Salihu Tanko Yakasai is a son of former politician and elder statesman, Tanko Yakasai, who was active in the politics of the First Republic, served as a commissioner in the military government of Kano State in the 1970s and was special adviser on National Assembly affairs to President Shehu Shagari.

The younger Yakasai (Dawisu) was until recently a special adviser on media to Kano State governor, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje. He was suspended from office last year for criticising President Muhammadu Buhari's handling of the End SARS protests. He was reinstated a few days later, but he was eventually dismissed and arrested by the DSS in February this year for once again criticising President Buhari over the security situation in Northern Nigeria (this was after some school children were kidnapped by bandits).

The activists believe that Dawisu should not be allowed to speak at the event because he spoke on behalf of the government until very recently. They believe that it will set a bad precedent if someone who was on the side of the government so recently, is given a platform and validated by opposition figures. The complaints were so much that the name "Dawisu" trended on Nigerian Twitter yesterday night and this morning. Here are screenshots of their reactions.

The event was scheduled to hold at Landmark Event Centre, but the owners of the centre have revoked permission for the event to go ahead there. The event will now take place online.

Dawisu should have known better than to accept being a guest at this event.

It's common sense that his nomination was a Greek gift aimed to capitalize on his megalomania and love for recognition and then get him humiliated for being a hypocrite and an advocate of tyranny.

Sadly for him and surely for posterity, it worked.
But what's that they say about an aboki being an aboki even in Harvard.

Invitingly Dawisu to speak at the #Endsar is never a bad thing. He actually spoke against Government handling of the protest while in government. I bet most of them barking about his inclusion will not say jack if they were SA to Governor of Kano of Lagos.
