Sowore Attempt To Change Government Is Treasonable – Minister Festus Keyamo



Festus Keyamo , the Minister of State for Labour and Employment, has said any attempt to change the government of the country other than through the ballot box or through so called revolution is treasonable.

Keyamo, via his Twitter page disclosed that the government will tolerate such an attempt to destabilize the country.

Recall that earlier today, Sowore was on Monday injured by a tear gas canister fired by a police operative at the Unity Fountain in Abuja during his preparation to hold a protest with some associates when the incident occurred.

Keyamo via the micro blogging app said “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.

He further said “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.”
