Sowore Challenges Social Media Users; ‘You have to drop your devices and get on your feet.’

By Sename Kojah

The call was made by Presidential Candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Omoyele Sowore while speaking on the “Holding Government Accountable” panel at the Social Media Week which held at The Landmark Event Center, Victoria Island, Lagos.

Young Nigerians have been asked to move from holding people in positions of authority to account on social media alone and drop their devices, get on their feet and save the country.

Sowore who is also founder of Sahara Reporters, a citizen journalism outfit, said ” I can tell you that nothing has worked as much as social media in Nigeria in terms of holding government accountable because it is beyond their reach; it is accountability beyond borders but I have to say that it has its own downside to the extent that if you think social media has all the power and you don’t do what is necessary next, government starts to adjust to social media, and so you must move from just revealing everything and holding them accountable. For you to have the best result, you have to drop your devices and get on your feet, and that was why social media was powerful in Egypt but until the Egyptians dropped their devices, they couldn’t have the Arab Spring”.

Sowore called on young people to work hard by ensuring that they get their PVC’s, vote and monitor the process around the election to ensure that there is an “Equatorial Spring” in Nigeria that will usher in a new era of politics in Sub-Saharan Africa.

He encouraged, “a new generation of Nigerians who are children of democracy. They are the secret to defeating the old brigands. The thing that happened with voters is a planned thing; they knew there are 22 million students who are voters, they had to keep you out of your school because they know that you are the angriest Nigerians and you are about to punish them with your vote regardless of what they have done to you. Please find your way to your polling unit and vote these guys out”.

AAC RALLY IN IKORODU, LAGOS.

Omoyele Sowore, Oluwaseun Ajireloja, and Francis Shonubi [Mani Congo] rallies with Nigerians in Lagos!

Omoyele Sowore, the Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Mr. Oluwaseun Ajireloja, the gubernatorial candidate and the Lagos East senatorial candidate of the party, Mr. Francis Shonubi and other party loyalists were present at the rally in the Ikorodu area of Lagos state on Wednesday the 6th of February 2019.

The party through the Presidential candidate reiterated to Nigerians its plans for the spontaneous development of the country if elected into office.

The party was warmly welcomed in Ikorodu by some royalties and their chiefs.
Many Nigerians who have been admirers of the AAC Presidential candidate voluntarily followed the party members all around Ikorodu in excitement.
This event took place less than 48 hours after the party held the most organic mass-filled political campaign in Nigeria since the country became a republic in the year 1963.

As the February 16th 2019 general elections draw near, millions of Nigerians yearn for a genuine change not just of those in government but also for the failed system of governance, especially the Nigerian constitution which harbors a vacuum to protect corrupt government officials and politicians and also restrict citizens from holding corrupt responsible for their ineptitude.

The Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress who have being in the Nigerian political space for about thirty years as an activist and an investigative journalist who has been fighting for democracy and good governance and the eradication of corrupt politicians from our political sphere have been proven by antecedent to  be the only credible candidate worthy to be the next President of Nigeria by June 12th 2019 when the democratically elected President would be sworn into office after the February 16th general elections in less than two weeks from now.

SOWORE’S AAC URGES NIGERIANS TO STAND IN SOLIDARITY AS 6 UNLAWFULLY ARRESTED FOR PASTING POSTERS REAPPEAR IN COURT

On Sunday, 9th December, 2018, six members of the African Action Congress party were unlawfully arrested during the early hours for pasting posters in Lagos State. The arresting officers went through several charges before settling on the charge of defacing public property, accusing them of vandalising posters belonging to Jimi Agbaje, the PDP Lagos state gubernatorial candidate.

Our supporters have been steadfast in their defence that they did no such thing; maintaining that they were arrested only with Sowore’s posters, brushes and adhesive paste.

At the time, the arrest, which led to a three-day detention including two days in Kirikiri Maximum Security Prison for pasting posters, was the latest in a long line of persistent attacks on the AAC. The party would later deal with exclusion from the national debate and a poorly orchestrated smear campaign.

We have fought every semblance of injustice and oppression that has come our way since the beginning of this campaign, and will continue to do so, this court case included.

It is unconscionable that the APC and PDP would rather sink to these depths than spend their time proving to Nigerians that they are worthy candidates to govern the land. That they would rather squander the freedom of six innocent young men than do the right thing – make plans for this nation and then keep their promises.

We urge Nigerians not to fall for these cheap tactics and to instead focus on the prize: a Nigeria that works for us all, regardless of tribe, religion, income level or political alliance.

On Monday, 4th February, 2019, the AAC will go to court and once again stare injustice in the face in the case of six young men arrested for pasting posters in Lagos state. Regardless of their political affiliations, it is our hope that every Nigerian will be rightfully outraged by this case.

We specifically ask that ALL of our supporters use the picture of the AAC 6 as their profile picture in a united, worldwide show of solidarity. We must support our own and let the old cabals know that we are not for bowing or breaking. This is the only way that Nigeria can progress – calling out injustice wherever one finds it – and Nigeria MUST progress.

SOWORE IS THE ANSWER TO NIGERIA’S PROBLEMS: VERDICT FROM “THE CANDIDATES” TOWN HALL SESSIONS

The Candidates – the presidential town hall co-production between NTA, Daria Media and the MacArthur foundation, drew to a close last night following Atiku’s appearance with his vice-president, Peter Obi. If it is fair to say that a leader’s true worth shines forth under pressure, then we can state categorically that there was one winner from the series and that was Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the African Action Congress.

Although Buhari and Atiku have artfully dodged a frontal debate with Sowore, The Candidates placed all the candidates on the same platform, with the same interviewer. And for 2 hours, Nigerians had the opportunity to hear the presidential and vice presidential candidates of the four leading political parties in the country talk about their plans and programs for Nigeria, as well as answer questions about their past. The town hall series was revealing. Nigerians have now had an opportunity to weigh their candidates for the highest offices in the land.

Buhari demonstrated a worrying cluelessness about many of the goings on in the country. He frequently had to be prompted by his Vice President, as he failed to hear or comprehend most of the questions asked. Buhari seemed neither mentally present nor interested in Nigeria. The APC has no ideas for how to steer Nigeria away from the crippling problems of insecurity, power sector failures, growing unemployment, farmer-herdsmen conflicts and lack of affordable healthcare access that continues to plague Nigeria. One could almost be moved to sympathy for Buhari after his catatonic performance, if it weren’t for the vicious wickedness that is the intention of foisting a second term that would extend and double our misery, on Nigerians.

Kingsley Moghalu and his running mate demonstrated that their ideas were as dated as those of the establishment they seek to replace. There were no bold plans to create jobs or to light up NIGERIA. There were no clear policy positions on how to address the challenges of insecurity and corruption. The town hall session also revealed the glaring lack of preparation of his vice presidential candidate. Suffice to say that his policies and heavy reliance on his previous stint as the deputy governor – a position that makes him complicit and responsible for a lot of the financial rot that Nigeria faces today – reveal him as being part and parcel of the establishment.

Atiku and Obi proved yesterday, that all of our fears that electing the PDP would simply replace one layer of corruption with another more complex and pernicious one, were true. Atiku could not satisfactorily explain his part ownership of a company that did extensive business with the Ports Authority when he was still in the Nigerian Customs service. He could not explain the money laundering indictments and allegations made by the US Senate Homeland Security Committee. Peter Obi squirmed and faltered as he attempted to convince Nigerians that he was doing Anambra state a favour when he invested billions of the state’s money in a venture in which his family’s NEXT International Nigeria, was a major shareholder. It is now clear that Atiku and Peter Obi complement themselves well. They are two vultures with the same corrupt feathers. They had no clear plans for any of Nigeria’s most pressing issues. They were clear on one point though – they were willing to offer amnesty to all corrupt persons.

We are thankful that despite the attempts to prevent Nigerians from seeing and contrasting Sowore with Buhari, Atiku and others on the national stage, the NTA – Daria Media Town Hall series provided objective points of contrast. Sowore demonstrated a masterful grasp of Nigeria’s issues. He showed amazing clarity in his vision for the country. Nigerians were able to learn first-hand that Sowore has been involved in the fight to move Nigeria forward for 30 years. Nigerians saw the courage of his plans and the strength of his conviction. Nigerians were reminded that he is the only candidate that committed to increasing power by 17,000 MW, doubling Nigeria’s road network from 200,000 km to 400,000 km, boosting our rail system from 3,700 km to 8,000 km, creating 5 million new jobs, paying workers a living wage of 100,000 Naira and creating an enabling environment for businesses to thrive.

Nigerians also got to see that in Dr Rabiu Rufai, Sowore has a running mate who equally understands Nigeria’s challenges and has the intellect, integrity and political will to be a strong partner in the task of positively transforming Nigeria.

Nigerians now know what their options are. We have seen all of those offering themselves for the leadership of our nation. The choice is clear. There is only one team that can move Nigeria forward, and that is the Sowore-Rufai team of the African Action Congress!

Buhari’s Autocracy and a need to Change Government

A political theory or system favoring and exercising unlimited or unchecked authority by a single individual is Autocracy. Virtuous to the principle of power sharing and Democracy, autocratic rules and decisions are deemed unfit and apparently liable to assail the rule of law in a constitutional society. Nigeria being a constitutional democratic state provides for the separation of powers among the Executive, Legislature, and judiciary. Each vested with different responsibilities as provided by the Constitution are required to operate independently from each other in order to check and avoid abuse of power.

In Nigeria today, under the administration of President Mohammed Buhari the arms of government have had a lot of conflicts resulting from power tussle. On December 2, 2016, an Abuja High court ordered the immediate release of the Shi’a leader, El Zakyzaky with a fine of 50million Naira, Subsequently, On July 2, 2018, the court ordered the immediate release of Colonel Dasuki; unfortunately, President Buhari refused both judicial verdicts on different occasions.

The Peak of the atrocities came when the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Walter Onohnghen was alleged and charged to court for failing to declare his asset, the issues generated heated controversy and the Code of Conduct Tribunal was denied jurisdiction to preside over the case leaving the Chief Justice undecided and apparently presuming his innocence by virtue of section 36(5) of the 1999 Constitution. The Government of the day has succeeded in violating the rights of the people it is obliged to care for.

Spiteful of Walter Onoghen’s presumption of innocence, The Presidency ordered a swift suspension of him and immediate installment of Mohammed Tanko as the acting chief justice of Nigeria violating judicial process and peeping into tyranny implicitly. The appointment of Tanko is deemed unconstitutional virtuous to Section 231(1) in the quote “The appointment of a person to the office of Chief Justice of Nigeria shall be made by the President on the recommendation of the National Judicial Council subject to confirmation of such appointment by the Senate.” The appointment of Mohamed Tanko without legislation is a command and abuse of power which is not tolerated under democracy.

Since Justice Walter Onoghen has not been convicted by a Competent Court of law and has not been brought to book by the Judicial Commission, it errs to appoint a new one amounting to two Chief Justices to head the judicial arm as we cannot have two presidents and two senate presidents in the country. Pursuant to section 231(4) “If the office of Chief Justice of Nigeria is vacant or if the person holding the office is for any reason unable to perform the functions of the office, then until a person has been appointed to and has assumed the functions of that office, or until the person holding has resumed those functions, the President shall appoint the most senior Justice of the Supreme Court to perform those functions.” In this regard the office of the CJN is not dully vacant and cannot be filled.

On the appointment of Justice Tanko, it is partially right on the ground that he is the subsequent justice of the Supreme Court to justice Onoghen, but violating the due process of legally removing justice Onoghen in accordance with section 292(1ai) of the 1999 constitution outrightly invalidates the appointment of Justice Tanko as the Chief Justice of Nigeria. In the supreme law of the Nation the removal of the CJN must be legislated, therefore the president’s action to impose the new CJN on the Nation Judicial mantle is outright dictatorship and must be dejected by the people of Nigeria.

Haven seen the dictatorial traits of the recent Government, and having the opportunity at the Election poll coming on February 16, it will be delusional and perversive to re-elect a Government which has no respect for the Fundamental rights of the people who are proclaimed to be Government. If proper decision is not taken, and the current government is reelected, a prospective sack of democracy and explicit return of autocracy is perceived.

Ikem Anyasi is determined to make an indelible mark in our LGA. He has got the vision, the contact and the strong will to empowered and give exposure to our people. He has vowed to do things DIFFERENTLY. Powered by AAC Oshimili North Exco

My Manifesto

One area where we can better the lives of our people, improve their living standard, expose them and do human capital development is through Sports. Sports is the highest employer of labour all over the world, yet we underestimate what a total overhaul and massive development of the sector will do for our people.

For a start when elected, Com. Anyasi will concentrate on four different sporting events such as:

1. Basketball,

2. Tennis,

3. Athletics and

4. Football.

I will establish four academy centres with school and boarding facilities in four different towns in the LGA. The focus target will be children between the ages of 12 and 18. Train the discovered talents with state of the art facilities in partnership’ with foreign professional schools.

The children will later be transferred abroad for further training and marketing in order for them to have opportunities in the big leagues. With this, families, towns and the LGA will be positively affected.

Foreign currency will flow into the schools and people who would have become frustrated due to lack of what to do would have made a good living for themselves and the society. Nigeria will be better for it.

My manifesto is for a progressive Ika South as a lawmaker via constitutional reform/ enactment.  

Adequate Representation

The gap between the Led and their Rep, for me, is and will remain a top priority. I will therefore establish not less than two offices in Ika South Local Government Area where my constituency will be lodging complaints for my immediate attention and urgent actions, as a TRUE believer of a transparent representation.

Lobbying and Collaboration

I will work assiduously with who ever becomes the Governor of Delta State in 2019, regardless of his political party or other affiliations because, what really matters to me is my constituency and the people I intend to represent and serve.

The Private Sector Partnership Alliance Programs (PS-PAP).

I will pursue vigorously through the enactment of laws in strong partnership with the Local Government Council Chairman the implementation of my agenda The Private Sector Partnership Alliance Programs (PS-PAP).

Job creation

As a lawmaker, I intend to sponsor reform and partnership bills that will attract private and corporate investors altogether via My Private Partnership Alliance Program {PS-PAP}. The bill will cover cooperative societies too! This in turn will lead to massive creation of job opportunities in our Constituency.

Natural and Human Resources Endowment:

In this area, I intend to study the existing laws on minerals in Nigeria and find ways we can put our mineral deposits into use and without the contravention of the Federal laws on one side, and while enabling a sort of self reliance and maximum utilisation of our mineral deposits to better the living conditions of our people on the other.

Only You Can Take Your Country Back; Now!!!

Nigerians over the years have had so many bad governments, whether during the military regime or in this current democratic dispensation that began in the year 1999, after so many years of military dictatorships and coups, and more importantly, a military coup which toppled a democratically elected government and got so many innocent Nigerians imprisoned without trial.

Nevertheless, history will never forgive us and posterity will definitely condemn us if we fail to teach our children and inform Nigerians in general about the atrocities committed by these people, especially that of Muhammadu Buhari who was in fact one of the worse military dictators in Nigeria, whose fascist government and narcissistic character gruesomely subjected Nigerians, unfortunately, to gross cruelty with impunity.

“Buhari enslaved the nation. He gloated and gloried in a master-slave relation to the millions of its inhabitants. It is astonishing to find that the same former slaves, now free of their chains, should clamour to be ruled by one who not only turned their nation into a slave plantation, but forbade them any discussion of their condition.” ~ Prof. Wole Soyinka.

Just as it is today, so it was in the military era, except that the two other arms of government, the press, and rights activists are at least somewhat free due to democracy

A lot of atrocities have been committed against the Nigerian people and without doubt, it is time for us as a people who have been collectively battered, dehumanized, denigrated, starved, and dejected to rise up, stand as one and take our country back from these oppressors who still live with us and in fact still govern us with ineptitude and feel no remorse whatsoever for their mis-governance and maladministration and the long term retrogression into which they have sunk our dear country.

The government of the day is a government whose corruption fight is only against opposing political voices and persons, it is a government that harbors corrupt politicians within its own party yet go extra miles to bring every political oppositions and even opposing voices of concerned citizens to judgement with lawsuits and imprisonment.

“Driver Get Accident, Na Conductor Buhari Charge Go Court” ~ Fela Anikulapo.

The 2019 general elections is here in less than a month and the people would go vote at the ballot for a new President and a new government, but while we are at it, we have to put into cognizance all the problems facing us in the country which is majorly due to the inept character and the maladministration by our politicians in government over the years.

Hence we have to vote them all out come February 16th, 2019, and take our country back by voting in credible candidates with worthy antecedents who have the will to make our country a great place for us wherein we would have no reason to leave our country and become illegal immigrants in foreign lands, and some becoming victims of xenophobia or ending up in a precarious situation in Libya.
