Nigerian activist  cum politician, Omoyele Sowore has taken the lead by protesting in Abuja on Nigeria's independence.

The publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore led a group of Nigerians under The Coalition for Revolution (CORE), the organisers of the #RevolutionNow protest, to protest hike in electricity tariff and fuel price held a peaceful protest in Abuja.

The group led by Omoyele Sowore, said the protest is against poor governance in the country.

The protesters marched through Area 1 roundabout, chanting different songs with bearing placards with different inscriptions.

The #RevolutionNow protest was first staged in August 5, 2019 with the second edition on the same date in 2020.

It held across major cities in Nigeria.

The protest, according to Sowore, is to demand reversal of: “anti-people policies implemented by the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

“These harsh policies that have burnt a burdensome hole into the pockets of the Nigerian people are coming at a time when citizens are recovering from the adverse effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, a global health crisis that was also mismanaged by the Buhari’s government further plunging already struggling citizens into deeper financial problems.

“It also comes at a time when there is an unprecedented dictatorial-style crackdown on free speech, dissent, activism, journalism and the right to associate and congregate peacefully and protest.

Amongst its demands, CORE clamoured for reversal of the hike in the price of petrol from N148 to N151, an end to: “state-supervised and approved impunity under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari” and the sacking of all service chiefs in the country due to their: “proven incompetence in finding a lasting solution to the Boko Haram insurgency which has claimed and is still claiming the life of Nigerians daily”
