A renown Activist, politician and philanthropist, Comrade Usman Okai Austin has this morning described the news making round that the former Presidential Candidate Oyewole Sowore has been unregistered as the Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as a desperate move to silent strong and opposing voice to Buhari led adminstration.
Erstwhile, it was reported that Comrade Sowore’s National Identity Card and Voter ID were allegedly deleted from the Nigeria Database, signalling an attempt to silent and render the activist handicapped in our Democratic field.
Comrade Usman Okai Austin while reacting to the development said, Sowore just like every other Nigerian deserve to be treated with dignity and respect, adding that the latest development is nothing but an attempt to undermine and ridicule our Democratic system.
Buhari who took over From President Goodluck Jonathan of the People’s Democratic Party in 2015 is the greatest beneficiary of a sane Democratic system, he must do everything humanly possible to provide such level play ground for citizens who aspire to become what they want in our shores, The activist Said.
As far as I know, Oyewole Sowore has never taken up arms against the Federal Government, rather he has been a law abiding citizens who has immensely contributed his quota to Nation building, deregistering such person is Undemocratic and must be retraced with immediate alacrity, Okai argued.
Usman Okai Austin who has been on loggerhead with Yahaya Bello led administration in kogi State concluded by saying, the Federal Government under the leadership of Muhammad Buhari must consider the restoration of Sowore’s National Identity Card and Voter ID, if we are to consider him a true Democrat.
