Group announces date to resume ‘RevolutionNow’ protest

By David Olalekan.

The Coalition for Revolution (CORE), has announced resumption of its nationwide mass action.

The group, led by detained activist, Omoyele Sowore, made the disclosure in Lagos today, through its co-convener, Mr. Olaseni Ajai.

Ajai noted that on Monday, August 19, the #RevolutionNow protest will continue across the federation, adding that the procession was not calling for the removal of President Muhammadu Buhari, but rather to present its five core demands.

“For the avoidance of any doubt, we hereby reiterate our five core demands: An economy that works for the masses; An effective and democratic end to insecurity; An end to systemic corruption and for total system change; The immediate implementation of the N30,000 minimum wage; including free and qualitative education for all,” the group’s co-convener stated.

Ajai also criticized Thursday’s ruling by the Federal High Court, Abuja, which permitted the Department of State Services (DSS) to keep Sowore in detention for 45 days, describing it as tyrannical.
