The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has amid the incessant and rising insecurity in Nigeria, warned against any plot to unconstitutionally remove President Muhammadu Buhari from power, despite his perceived incompetence and unavailability to the people, .
Keyamo stated this in a two-part tweet on Monday afternoon.
His statement was a reaction to the shooting of a former Presidential Candidate and Publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore, who was injured during a protest earlier today, in Abuja, which some claimed was a gunshot by a female Police Officer.
The Politician, who is also the Convener of the #RevolutionNow and #BuhariMustGo campaigns, was preparing to hold a rally with some Associates, when the incident happened at the Unity Fountain. in Abuja.
The FCT Police Command has however, denied shooting him.
Reacting nonetheless, Keyamo, who took to Twitter, wrote: “After long years of turbulent Military governments, Nigerians have agreed to adopt democracy as the best and only form of government. Any attempt to change a government other than the ballot box, or other constitutional means is treasonable, no matter how it is packaged in some sentimental jargon.
“All arguments against a government should be geared towards persuading the citizens to vote against it at the next polls, or invoking constitutional provisions through democratic institutions. Any shortcut outside these is an invitation to anarchy, and no reasonable government will tolerate it.”
