The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has commended his Peoples Democratic Party counterpart, Atiku Abubakar for standing up to fight for electoral justice in Nigeria. He made this comment via a Tweet on Monday while reacting to a picture of the PDP standard bearer leading a protest against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Recall that the protest march by the PDP took off at about 11:10am, and was joined by the PDP national chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu, and other members of the National Working Committee (NWC).
However, reacting to the picture which showed Atiku being guarded by officers of the DSS and police as they journeyed to the INEC headquarters in Abuja, Mr Sowore said thus:
"Good to see Atiku Abubakar and the Peoples Democratic Party fight for electoral justice. Everyone must engage in civil disobedience to extinguish the monumental injustice perpetrated by INEC, except that for us revolutionaries we don’t get the privilege to have DSS and police…"
Do you think Atiku should protest unprotected by the DSS considering his title?
