Presidential aspirant and leader of the TakeIt Back movement, Omoyele Sowore, has said that the continent of Africa is about to witness a revolution that will bring the old guards to retirement and the continent to its new dawn.
He made this known when he was received by hundreds of supporters at the Murtala Muhammad International Airport, Lagos, on arrival from his tour of some states in the United States of America to canvass the support of Nigerians living in the Diaspora.
"The same way it is happening in Nigeria today, continentally it’s also happening in Uganda. A young Ugandan, Bobi Wine, has arrived Uganda to kick out Yoweri Musevini; I am also arriving Nigeria to kick out Muhammadu Buhari and to retire all the old guards who have made it impossible for this country to witness progress.
“We are standing today behind a monument of decay. We are still managing one of the worst airports on the continent of Africa. Without a new mindset, without new leaders in this country who can truly drive Nigeria into progress, we are deceiving ourselves and we cannot continue to allow those who use the excuse that Rome was not built in a day. It is true that Rome was not built in a day but Rome was also not built forever”.
He bemoaned Nigeria’s perpetual stagnation, saying that Nigerians can no longer afford to go hungry or without education and that it is time to “take it back”.
Sowore was greeted with pomp and fanfare by supporters as well as spectators who came to catch a glimpse at the international arrival wing of the airport.
