Sowore Responds to Police Warning on “No Gree for Anybody” Slogan: A Clash of Ideas

Published

Human rights activist and leader of the #RevolutionNow movement, Omoyele Sowore, has offered a robust response to the Nigeria Police Force’s warning about the usage of the 2024 slogan, “No gree for anybody.”

Recall that DiasporaDigitalMedia reported a press briefing on Wednesday, by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, who cautioned against the slogan, deeming it as dangerous and potentially triggering a crisis across the nation. Adejobi highlighted that the phrase emerged from a revolutionary sector, raising concerns about its implications.

Sowore, known for his advocacy for change and revolution, took to X (formerly Twitter) on Thursday to express his perspective on the matter. In his posts, he quoted Victor Hugo, emphasizing that the slogan embodies an idea whose time has come and cannot be halted by any force on earth.

“Yea, it is what it is! #RevolutionNow. The @PoliceNG has seen the handwriting on the well, yes, ‘WE NO GO GREE FOR ANYBODY’ is coming from the Revolutionary sector!” Sowore asserted.

As a two-time presidential candidate for the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2019 and 2023 elections, Sowore conveyed his firm stance that in 2024, Nigerians will not yield to what he described as oppressors, usurpers, looters, and treasury robbers.

“And this year, We no go gree for any oppressor, usurper, looters, and treasury robbers. It is what it is! #RevolutionNow,” he declared.

The slogan “No gree for anybody” gained prominence in the Nigerian social media space as the nation entered 2024. Its resonance among youths, including celebrities, reflects a sentiment of resilience and defiance against perceived oppressors and systemic challenges. The clash of ideas between the police caution and Sowore’s response underscores the tension surrounding the slogan’s significance and its potential impact on the socio-political landscape in Nigeria.
