Lauretta Onochie has lashed out at those calling for a revolution asking why they did not do same when it was needed most in the country.
In a series of tweets on Monday, August 5, the aide to President Muhammadu Buhari on social media wondered why those calling for revolution now did not do so when Niger Delta militants were bombing pipelines.
Onochie also wondered why the same call for revolution did not arise when the same militants started kidnapping foreign investors and later Nigerians.
- THE REVOLUTION THEY REFUSED TO DO WHEN IT WAS NEEDED MOST.
When militants were busy bombing and destroying oil installations and then polluting the entire Niger Delta environment between the year 1997 to 2016, where was your revolution?
2. The presidential aide recalled that opposition politicians were being targeted 2002 and 2014 and wondered why those asking for revolution now kept quiet.
Onochie commended the Department of State Services (DSS) over its arrest of former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore.
Onochie in response to a tweet on Saturday, August 3 said the DSS is saddled with the responsibility of protecting lives and properties.
The presidential aide said Sowore’s arrest was to prevent him from harming himself.
