Protest: Group warns against Kenya model in Nigeria

Group warns

A non-governmental organisation, ‘Centre for Crisis Communication’, (CCC), has issued a stern warning to Nigerians against contemplating the model adopted by the Kenyans in their recent anti-tax protest.

Chairman Board of Trustees of CCC, Maj.-Gen. Chris Olukolade (rtd), gave the warning while addressing newsmen on the Centre’s Conflict Trends Analysis, (CTA), for the second quarter yesterday in Abuja.

Kolade said the Centre was concerned about the antics of those who are mooting the idea of re-enacting in Nigeria, the recent anti-tax crisis that rocked Kenya.

According to him, they believe that such destructive protests in Nigeria will be the surest way of getting the government to solve our current economic challenges.

He said that much as the right to protest was guaranteed in the nation’s constitution, any form of destruction and violence in the name of protest should be avoided.

According to him, the Kenyan experience is not and should not be our democratic model

“Violence has no redeeming quality and any action that will lead to violence and destruction should be discouraged.
