Metuh said the “persistent assault on the sensibilities” of Nigerians can birth a revolution worse than the #EndSARS movement.

Stop Taking Air Force Jets To Weddings To Avoid Revolution, Movements Bigger Than #EndSARS, Ex-PDP Spokesman, Olisa Metuh Warns Nigerian Politicians.

Olisa Metuh, former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has warned politicians against misusing their positions to avoid a movement bigger than #EndSARS protests.

In October, Metuh announced his resignation from the PDP and declared he would no longer participate in partisan politics.

However, in a statement issued on Tuesday in response to allegations that senators used an air force jet to go to a wedding, Metuh said the actions of the political elite have the potential to spark anarchy in the country.

Metuh said the “persistent assault on the sensibilities” of Nigerians can birth a revolution worse than the #EndSARS movement.

Nigerians embarked on massive street protests in October 2020 as part of the #EndSARS movement in opposition to police brutality, particularly committed by members of a unit known as the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

Metuh, therefore, urged Nigerian politicians to “urgently” change their ways to avert a repeat of a similar incident.

He said, “Truth be told, Nigerians have suffered a lot; they are suffering with burning indignation against politicians and their families and, God forbid, such indignation has the propensity to trigger a revolution and complete anarchy within one year of the general elections, if our political class fail to cleanse its ways.

“The entire political class must stop this tomfoolery and listen to the drumbeat by the ordinary Nigerians.

“Nigerians are tired of the lack of empathy by the political class who continue to abuse their positions and exploit the national resources for their lavish merrymaking while the nation burns.

“As a non-partisan statesman, it is imperative that I again caution our political class, to as a matter of urgent national importance, change their ways and cleanse their acts.

“This persistent assault on the sensibilities of Nigerians if not immediately halted may trigger a situation that may be worse than the October 2020 EndSARS protest with dire consequences in the polity.

“Truth be told, Nigerians have suffered a lot; they are suffering with burning indignation against politicians and their families and, God forbid, such indignation has the propensity to trigger a revolution and complete anarchy within one year of the general elections, if our political class fail to cleanse its ways.

“It is instructive that the senators involved show remorse by apologising to Nigerians while the presidency takes strong steps to ensure that such abuse does not occur again.

“For emphasis, Nigerians are not ready to condone any government, post-May 29, 2023, that will continue to use or hire private jets, maintain guest houses, use long and exotic convoys or indeed use government resources to fund their excesses.

“All those holding or aspiring for public offices must, therefore, brace up and be ready for transparency and integrity in office or steer clear of such public responsibilities.”

He added that “Nigerians must, therefore, do their part to save our country by supporting only candidates that will work for the interest of the nation and not be driven by a mundane desire for monetary gains, gratifications and lust for political appointments”.
