Sowore: Trial is Uncalled for, Shehu Sanni

Senator Shehu Sanni, a former lawmaker at the eighth National Assembly who represented Kaduna Central senatorial district has urged President Mohammed Buhari to release Sowore, Sahara Reporters’ publisher.

The former lawmaker called the charges against the activist unnecessary and uncalled for, citing the negative impact of such charges on the country’s image. He explained further that Sowore’s prosecution is against the progressivism philosophy the All Progressives Congress party claims to stand for.

While calling on the government to release the activist, Senator Sani said: “The President’s desire to build and leave behind an anti-corruption legacy and tower should not be cited in the Human rights graveyard.

The democratic credentials of any elected government is not simply about the legitimacy of its mandate, but about the degree of its tolerance to dissent and its compliance with the fundamental principles of freedom. ”

He concluded by urging the government to drop all charges against the #RevolutionNow convener. In his concluding speech, he said: “ I appeal to the government to drop the charges filed against Sowore. 

When a state equates dissent to disloyalty, it progressively decays under the weight of its courtiers. ”

You will recall that Sowore was arrested and detained for its role in the #RevolutionNow campaign against the current government over 40 days ago.

    you added a headline that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Sowore: Trial is Uncalled
    for, Shehu Sanni – BuzzDrop24 is a little vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create
    article titles to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a pic or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little
    bit more interesting.
