Coalition for Revolution, (CORE), an online public group, with national and international spread, has expressed disguise at the manner land speculators are bulldozing their ways to take over estates, built by some past governors of Lagos State for the working masses.
Gbenga Komolafe, Co-Convener of CORE, in a Facebook post said Gowon Estate, Jakande Housing Estates and Shagari Housing Estates, etc, were built by various governments in the past to provide shelter for working people.
Regrettably however, “since 1999, some agencies in Lagos had only demolished poor people’s homes and steal their lands for land speculators!”
He wondered if this was not what June 12 was about! #June12Protests
The Coalition for Revolution, CORE, is a coalition made up of activists, working class Socialist organizations, pro-masses and youth political parties, and civil society committed to the revolutionary transformation of Nigeria in the interests of the toiling masses and youth.
The Coalition developed in October 2019 around the need for activists to work along with the TakeItBack (TIB) Movement and the African Action Congress (AAC) with the agenda of building a revolutionary platform of the masses and youth.
CORE has since grown with more organizations and activists joining. It has increased its intervention in the day to day struggles of the working people, communities and campuses. CORE is open to all interested struggle for change.
