#END SARS PROTEST AND NIGERIA GOVERNMENT REACTION

#ENDSARS
ENDSARS (1/3)

It became so alarming the brutality of police on Nigeria citizens, precisely the YOUTH, we were left with no choice than to resort to protest to end the police brutality, however, the #ENDSARS protest was just a strategy to draw the attention of Nigeria political leaders to many other things that are not well in the country e.g

1. INSTITUTIONAL REFORMS (SECURITY)

2.COST OF GOVERNANCE

3.CONSTITUTION REFORMS

4.EDUCATION REFORMS

5. HEALTH REFORMS

6. YOUTH AFFAIRS REFORM

7. PUBLIC OFFICE REFORMS.

The Nigeria Youth were so organized in carrying out the protest in a peaceful way all over the country in days and some weeks.

Social media played and still playing pivotal role in ensuring that the movement continues, there by making Nigeria citizens in diaspora to participate in the protests as well as spreading the news all over the world, drawing the attentions of many countries and organizations e.g UNITED NATION, CNN etc. 

I want the international community to know the kind of wicked Government and political leaders Nigeria have, a Government that can open fire on unarmed protesters using the military men on us in lekki tollgate in Lagos , one of the places the youth coverged in Lagos NIGERIA to carry out a peaceful protest, that is a total genocide.

The Nigeria Government also send thugs using official cars to conveyed them to cause harm and different atrocities in the country to tag the protests unpeaceful , many have been killed during this protest and the Nigeria Government are trying to cover it with their political power.

My vision for peaceful NIGERIA in summary, is for the government to try all possible best to meet the demand of the YOUTH outlined for them.

Nigeria Government need to include the youth in the running of the affairs of the country.

 

We are tired of the old people ruling us, we are calling for a new Nigeria, where the child of a no body can get what ever he /she want legitimately without knowing anybody, a new Nigeria where rule of law will work, a new Nigeria that will be free from oligarchy or dictatorship of may kind by any body, solely democracy as stipulated in the NIGERIA constitution of 1999 as amended.

Dear Destiny,
The youth have come together with such courage and been met with violence called by those in the generation before who have done nothing but feed their own gluttony, ignoring even their own sisters and brothers for their own selfish benefit. All power to your generation intent on fairness and caring for all, a country that you describe so well, "a new Nigeria where rule of law will work, a new Nigeria that will be free from oligarchy or dictatorship".

Dear Destiny,
It is hear breaking what is going on in Nigeria, but to see the undeterred resolve of the youth in spite of the continued brutality on them inspires one to keep hoping with you for a better Nigeria.
Prayers of comfort to all who've suffered direct or indirect brutality from the police.
I hope you keep safe.
In solidarity.

Dear Destiny,
I hope you are well and keeping safe.
Thank you for this write up.
It is truly sad to see just how much the old leaders are causing damages and loss of life because of their refusal to give the youths a chance.
It is saddening that the quest of power and greed has reduced human life to this level for our leaders.
Change whatever they do, will remain the only constant and it will come to pass. May this change be a positive one.
BTW, Welcome to the pulse.
