#Revolutionow: 9 northern groups pull out of planned protest

Nine groups out of the 15 that formed the Joint Northern Action Front to partispate in a planned revolutionow protest in some northern states on Aug. 22, have pulled out.

The Secretary of the groups, Tanko Mustapha made the declaration in a joint press statement issued on Wednesday in Kaduna.

“We are pleased to announce today that these nine groups have resolved to pull its members out of tomorrow’s planned protests called by the Joint Northern Action Front which we were part of,” he said.

Mustapha said their withdrawal from the protests was based on some considerations.

“We have reviewed the planned protests by critically looking into the nature, salient intentions and most importantly the likely negative consequences on the North in particular and democracy in generall.

“We discovered that the main intention of the protests is far from checking government excesses that are of national concerns, but rather to further the hidden agenda of some people.

“Our concern is that the nature of the protests may very likely not be peaceful and it will not only be unproductive but may have negative consequences on the north and our democracy as well.

“We weighed all the possibilities against the background of its dangerous consequenses in countries like Libya and Yemen who embarked on such moves blindly.

“After candidly weighing the pros and cons, we arrived at the conclusion that the exercise is ill informed, in bad taste, counterproductive, self-serving as well as an ill wind that will not blow anybody any good.

“Despite the lapses in governance in all aspects, especially in security, economy, and infrastructure, we wish to align with the patriotic position of the apex conglomerate of groups in the north, the CNG, that every issue can be discussed and resolved in a civilized manner and never by violence.

“We today, therefore, declare a complete pullout from participation in the organization and call on the protesters and all people of the north to disregard the calls,” he said.

Mustapha called on the government to as a matter of urgency, address all the observed lapses and misgovernance to avoid uprisings. (NAN)

People lie or dissimulate a lot in Nigeria, and it is one of the reasons why the country cannot deliver even uninterrupted electricity in almost 60 years.

Not a believer or support of the idea of revolution in Nigeria exactly because of the tendency by sections of the country (particularly the North) to assume that any radical progressive change will remove their ill-gotten advantage.

Not their spokesperson, but the organizers of #Revolutionow always stated that they do not plan or envisage violence through their protests. But these 9 northern groups foists the lie that the organizers do.

Well, at least they are honest enough to admit their real reason for pulling out, which is that revolution is NOT in Northern interest. Radical change, the type that can actually make Nigeria work, is not in the interest of the north...
which is exactly why groups like IPOB is only interested in and focused on pulling out of Nigeria altogether.

Nigeria is three countries in one: The North, the West, and the East.
Those three came together to found Nigeria in 1960.
As of today, only the North is comfortable with the current political system. The proof is that it has resisted any attempt at changing the system.
The West is not happy, but is currently trying (through the misguided revolution idea) to instigate peaceful change.
The East is not happy, is tired of the game of "race to the back", and wants to pull out. Shikena.

I watched a Youtube video where a young Yoruba guy was making his best effort to convince the Igbos that only by coming together with the Yoruba and the Hausa in a revolution could Nigeria change for the better, at least giving the Igbos another choice rather than just outright secession. I watched the whole video (all 55 minutes of it) and simply laughed. I didn't know why I laughed then, but with this news, now I know why.
