According to SaharaReporters, the group made this declaration via a statement which he released.

CORE further lamented the prevalence of corruption in the country’s political system calling for a total overhaul of the system.

The group said the following its statement:

“It is quite clear that the Nigerian ruling elites and the current political regimes of both the APC and PDP at all levels of government can never resolve any of the crises plaguing the land as they are co-creation of the corrupt system that paves way for the problems in the first place. The situation has gone from bad to worse and still on the downward slide at an accelerating speed.

The group also emphasized on the many conflicts which are rocking the country stating that they will eventually have deadly consequences while noting that the country was the poverty capital of the world.

“There are currently more than a dozen armed conflicts going on around the country with deadly consequences and massive displacements of people. These confirm the reality that Nigerian is tending more towards a FAILED STATE where barbarism reigns supreme.

“Also, Nigeria is currently the country with the highest level of poverty globally. Daily reports of killings, kidnapping, attacks, corruption, etc are what currently dominates the media reports,” the statement read.

The group urged the youths in the country to take over the streets in protest until the government meets up with their demands.

It added in the statement, “The Nigerian masses and youths, therefore, have no choice but to stand up and storm the streets in protest and with their demands.

“The change they said never comes easy and if we do not stand up in the struggle for freedom, the chains would remain on our necks.

They further made it clear that it was within their rights to stage a peaceful protest which would be coordinated nationally.

“Commencing on Monday, August 5, 2019, the Coalition for Revolution, would be leading a nationally coordinated protest movement.

“We have the right to be in a rage and to protest. The Aug 5 date was arrived at after series of consultations and meetings.”‘
