Keyamo In Veiled Jab At Sowore Says Any Attempt At Changing Govt Before Election Is Treasonable

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo {SAN} on Monday said any attempt at changing the current government without recourse to the ballot is treasonable, insisting that no reasonable government will tolerate it.

Keyamo, a stated this in tweets on Monday in a veiled reaction to the shooting of the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore while preparing for a rally at the Unity Fountain in Abuja on Monday.

NaijaNewsNow reports that Sowore was reportedly shot on Monday by a female police officer.

Keyamo, who took to his Twitter handle on Monday, wrote: “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.

“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.”
