“The recent Sowore court drama has created a lot of fear and bad blood among citizens in the country. The assault on the rule of law and the fear of the emergence of totalitarianism are issues heating the polity.

Depite Sowore accusing the government of ineptitude and poor governance and wanting a revolution, Okupe said his call for a revolution should simply have been ignored.

“At the time he made the call he was merely filibustering. His call was a mere attention-seeking and rabble-rousing escapade.”

As an opposition party member, Okupe said he is mo longer interested in rating or criticising President Muhammadu Buhari or APC government because the government has no tolerance for criticism and has not shown any evidence of taking advantage of copious beneficial resource materials, criticisms and advice thrown at it from various segments of the society.

“I am more interested and wish to devote my time and energy towards educating the upcoming political class and the general public on non -partisan issues that have bedevilled our polity for years and have resisted solutions. I am also interested in helping to rebuild PDP so that it can be remodelled, rebranded and better suited to take over governance from the present incumbent APC.

Speaking further about claims of the APC that it has rescued Nigeria from the path of destruction on which the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) placed it for 16 years, Okupe said the APC can claim what they like, adding that the taste of the pudding is in the eating.

“Nigerians now know better, even non-Nigerians too. All indices and parameters for assessing government functionality and effectiveness are there for everybody to see. The only misfortune here is that approval or disapproval by the electorate based on their rating of government performance cannot be reflected electorally largely because of an absence of free and fair elections and judicial interference by the government.”
