Sowore: Timi Frank Charges DSS To Name Sponsors Of ‘Revolution Now’



2020 budget

Political activist, Timi Frank, has charged the Department of State Service to name the sponsors of the Revolution Now protest by Omoyele Sowore and some Nigerians.

The former Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress advised the DSS not to allow itself to be used by the ruling APC against some perceived political enemies.

Frank made this claim while speaking on the report by the DSS that some people abroad were behind the protest.

He called on them to reveal the list or stop discrediting Nigerians.

He said, “I challenge the DSS to bring out proof that some people abroad are sponsoring Omoyele Sowore’s ‘Revolution Now’ protest. The current development has simply shown that the APC government is not used to the democratic system of governance, hence the fear it continues to create in the mind of Nigerians.”

Frank warned the security operatives against intimidating and arresting innocent people, he called on operatives to learn from the case of former National Security Adviser, Col Sambo Dasuki (retd) “who had the power to arrest anybody then but now under perpetual detention.”

“The DSS authorities should stay off politics and stop blackmailing innocent Nigerians for demanding their rights.”

He said, “If there is anybody breaking the laws of the Federation by their actions it is the present administration and its officials who have no respect for the rule of law nor obey simple court orders.”

“Where is the DSS’s intelligence that shows that some people are sponsoring the group? If the DSS is so sure of its assertions and not playing the script of the APC’s administration, the secret police should make public the names of the alleged sponsors.”

“Nigerians and the whole world now know clearly that the current panic-stricken administration is not tolerant and it has just scored own goal by arresting a leader of a civil group demanding good governance without violence or any dangerous weapon.”

“The current insecurity, hunger, parlous economy, unmitigated unemployment and disregard for the rule of law under this government have worsened to the extent that Nigerians would not need anybody to pay them before they come out on the streets to protest against bad governance being perpetrated by the APC.”

“What happened in 2014 was not up to this level before Nigerians came out en masse under former President Goodluck Jonathan and the then administration didn’t accuse or arrest anybody. The General Muhammadu Buhari-led APC should learn to be tolerant,” Frank stated.
