At a time when Nigeria is moving unto the next level of positive and progressive social transformation to bring about colossal development in various sectors, boom! the “sowerism” ideology emerged to pave way for disturbances and jettison the coexistence of our dear nation. Alas!
What we need in Nigeria today is ResolutionNow not RevolutionNow. We all agreed once that Sowore is a claimed “activist” who advocates for social transformation in Nigeria. However, the problems comes not from him but the concept he coined through which the said social transformation will happen and how it should happen. The idea of RevolutionNow is absolutely condemnable for the fact that it is an act of treason and no Government will stand to allow the progress of such obnoxious event in its country amidst other social problems haunting and sabotaging the efficacy and efficiency of ensuring good governance in Nigeria.
Had it been Sowore call for ResolutionNow instead of RevolutionNow, He and his environs would have contributed with ideas and resources to aid the Government in thousand other ways to dealt with issues of Kidnapping, Banditry, Farmers/Headers, IPOB, IMN, Boko Haram and even help In revivifying the economy of our dear nation. That’s ResolutionNow!
Dreadfully, Sowore thought Nigeria isn’t robust enough to go for ResolutionNow and hence he advocated for the deadly ideology through Revolution which literally translate into an increase in numbers of our social problems and an added issue to be dealt with at the early stage of its conception before it metamorphosed into a concept like Boko Haram, IPOB among others that disturbed and disrupt our coexistence.
As such, It is time for us to vindicate ourselves from this horrendous Sowerism ideology that only could lead to regretful actions with millions of negative consequences. Should we advocate for social transformation through RevolutionNow let’s contribute with ideas and resources to revolutionize our negative minds and have great minds that will aid the Government in several ways to attain positive and progressive transformation.
