Social Media Rumbles As Sowore, Eedris Abdulkarim, Deji Adeyanju Drum Up Support For #RevolutionNow

Nigeria’s political twitter ‘vile’ is presently a bee-hive of activities as several powerful names in terms of political activism are presently drumming up support for a supposed Arab spring kind of revolution in Nigeria.

The popular Arab Spring was a series of anti-government protests,uprisings, and armed rebellions that spread across North Africa and the Middle East in the early 2010s.

Following decades of repression of free speech, human rights abuses, economic mis-management, corruption and stifling of political dissent in Egypt, the Arab Spring or as some would rather call it, Arab awakening started off in Tunisia when a street vendor in a provincial town of Sidi Bouzid sparked mass anti-government protests.

The president unable to contain the spread of protests was forced to flee the country in January 2011 after about 23 years in power.
