Nigeria Presidency: Enhance governance through elections, not revolution
Nigeria Presidency…In front of Monday’s planned ‘revolution’ walk by the Global Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria, the Presidency said on Sunday that elections remain the most ideal approach to change a government.
In an announcement marked and posted via web-based networking media by the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Media and Publicity), Garba Shehu, the Presidency states:
“Following calls flowing on social and advanced media, an association that considers itself the “Worldwide Coalition for Security and Democracy in Nigeria” design a “revolution” walk tomorrow, Monday fifth August, with the point of bringing “system change” in Nigeria without response to an across the country vote.
“The President of Nigeria and his organization regard and maintain the privilege of each Nigerian to tranquil dissent and common crusade whether to bring issues to light on issues and even contradict the government. It is the natural right of all natives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to do as such.
“There is, be that as it may, a contrast between a quiet call to dissent and impelling for an upset.
“The association advocating this arranged activity isn’t fronted by any genuine open appearances. We approach the patrons and coordinators to have the respectability to approach and make their personality known – out of regard to all Nigerians – with the goal that Nigerians can be completely mindful in whose name this “unrest” is being proposed and who the recipients might be.

“Under a half year back, Nigeria held concurrent presidential and parliamentary elections. The two challenges were won resoundingly by President Muhammadu Buhari and his All-Progressives Congress party. The battle was watched, and results were affirmed by worldwide election checking gatherings and spectators. The outcome was even challenged by the losing presidential up-and-comer and his party in Court.
“The ballot box is the main established methods for changing government and a president in Nigeria. The times of upsets and insurgencies are finished.
“That creates the “transformation” call hole up behind the cloak of online networking advancement. In any case, without uncovering the personality of their patrons this shadowy crusade is no better, and not any more equitable, than the times of old.
‘The President approaches each one of the individuals who look to utilize and take cover behind ordinary natives to achieve control through undemocratic and fierce methods, which has been implied, to turn out unmistakably and be recognized. They should lead their walk face to face. At exactly that point will they start to reserve the privilege to call themselves leaders before the individuals of Nigeria.”
