The National Chairman of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has admonished all state chairpersons to intensify mobilisations towards the forthcoming October 1st mass protest.
In a zoom meeting widely attended by State organs and leaders of the party today, extensive deliberations were made on possible ways to strengthen activities ahead of the national protest.
Far-reaching resolutions were made on the imperative to sensitize and
mobilise the Nigerian people against the hike in fuel price, electricity tariffs,
insecurity, human rights abuses, amongst others depriving issues.
Highlighting on the challenges, tasks, and prospects for October 1st mass action, the party restates its commitment to pursue rigorously all demands
of the #Revolution campaign until the country becomes a place that works for all and not for the thieving minority in positions of power.
In assuaging fears of arrests and violations of human rights, the party
national chairman drives on confidence and a need to build more conscious programs to keep the public engaged.
He says: “Go all out and don’t be afraid. Having spent five months in
detention, I came out and I am still here. Our comrades in Lagos, Osun, Kano, and other parts of the country were detained and they have become more courageous than ever. They saw the system for what it is: rotten.”
On a final note, Sowore applauded the efforts made so far by the state
chairpersons commenting on the huge respect that has been accorded to the party by the Nigerian populace, both home and abroad.
