Popular activist, Journalist and Presidential candidate in the just-concluded February 2019 general election, Omoyele Sowore, has explained his experience when he decided to look out for a secondary school where he can teach.
9jatoday recalls that Sowore following his #RevolutionNow movement landed himself in prison and was remanded until December last year when he was released alongside his fellow, Sambo Dansuki, from the Department of State Security (DSS).
Sowore, as posted on his Twitter page on Tuesday, reveals that he had visited a secondary school somewhere in Abuja so he can apply as a school teacher, but to his surprise, the school principal flees after seeing him.
The activist who was charged with “conspiracy to commit treason and insulting President Muhammadu Buhari”, explained that following his release, he was a bit bored relaxing at home and so he decided to look for a secondary school where he can impact students by teaching thems ‘Government or Geography’.
He wrote; “You may find this funny or even curious, today I set out to look for a public school where I could teach “Government” or Geography while sitting idle in Abuja so we set out to a public school but by the time we arrived there the Principal had disappeared on us.”
Sowore, however, did not find this funny from his explanation, as it seems that he has been serious about his decision.

Reacting to Omoyele Sowore’s ordeal, some Nigerians took to his page to comment.
See some of the reactions below;
“The principal should be disciplined for allowing such in his school. Just like he should not abandon his colleagues and students when there is a fire outbreak in the school, so he should have risen up to the challenge posed by Sowore’s inappropriate appearance in his school,” said a Twitter user with the username – @mbsakiwa.
Another @ogoh_ediri followed by saying, “Please follow the law this time and focus on solutions and not pictures, why not a university, we qualified voters are, why not start a political science education club, while not hold a concert on this, etc,”
“Why government or geography? History subject should be mandatory from P1 to the University level. This demonstrator wouldn’t have been in power if history was a mandatory subject,” said @IGetSense.
