Festus Keyamo reacts to Sowore’s shooting in Abuja

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, SAN, has reacted to the injuries sustained by a former presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore, after a tear gas canister was fired by a police operative in Abuja.

Keyamo stated that any attempt to change the present government other than through election is treasonable.

The minister stated this in a two-part tweet on Monday afternoon.

WITHIN NIGERIA had reported that the the convener of the Revolution Now, Sowore was reportedly shot on Monday by a female police officer during a protest at the Unity Fountain in Abuja.

Keyamo’s tweets read: “After long years of turbulent, military govts, Nigerians have agreed to adopt democracy as the best and only form of govt. 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 govt 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 govt will tolerate it.”
