#RevolutionProtest: Shehu Sani Reacts to The Attacks On Protesters
Senator Shehu Sani has condemned unwarranted attacks on the protesters who staged a protest to demand good governance across the country on Monday.
Sani while reacting to the #RevolutionNow protests organised by the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, said Nigeria’s democracy is on crutches.
He stated this in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja on Monday.
Recalling that Nigeria’s democracy is a product of the culture and history of protest and current ruling establishment, a product and a direct beneficiary of that culture of protest, Sani said it is ironic that the political class which the Nigerian people protested for while in opposition have now resorted to undermining and crippling the very democratic instruments they once so cherished.
He said, “It’s ironic that the very political class have now resorted to undermining and crippling the very democratic instruments they once so cherished.
“Protest is the pillar and the beam of democracy. The fear of revolution is the beginning of the revolution. A political class that called itself progressive should have no fear of revolution.”
