The Coalition of Northern Groups, CNG, has rebuked President Muhammadu Buhari for hastily thanking Nigerians who refused to join the RevolutionNow Protest of Omoyele Sowore and demand that he apologized to Nigerians for his failure instead.
According to CNG, Buhari has not lived up to expectations and should as a matter of urgency apologize to the country instead of thanking them for not joining a justifiable protest.
It spoke while reacting to the statement credited to Buhari thanking Nigerians for boycotting the RevolutionNow protest called by the 2019 presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Omoyele Sowore.
Sowore had called for a revolution over the alleged failure of the current Federal Government.
Despite Sowore’s arrest, the protest was held in pockets of locations.
However, CNG has now said Buhari should rather apologise to Nigerians for dragging the country into a desperate situation.
A statement by its spokesperson, Malam Abdul-Azeez Sulaiman, reads: “We submit that instead of just sitting back to thank Nigerians for not joining the overthrow plan, President Buhari should rather sincerely apologize to the nation by reflecting on how he dragged the country into such a desperate situation, own up to his inadequacies and take genuine steps to address the mounting national grievances.
“Unless this is done, with the growing angry mood that pervades the entire country, the likelihood of a more serious dissent remains imminent.”
