A former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, has cried out over the silence of President Muhammadu Buhari in the ongoing nationwide protest.
Despite the disbandment of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, unit of the police, the protest has still intensified in different parts of the country.
So many captions such as ‘End bad government in Nigeria; end police brutality, end bad governance; Justice for Jimoh Isaiq; reform the Nigeria Police’ restructure Nigeria; among others are currently trending on social media and also seen on the placards in the streets indicating that the protest has gradually shifted from the original aim of ending SARS.
The first and last time President Buhari spoke on the ongoing protest against the extortion and brutality by operatives of SARS was over one year ago. Since then, the protest has been intense and kept spreading in almost all major cities in the country.
Ezekwesili, a former presidential aspirant, in a tweet on Saturday, said, “What really is the end game of the
@MBuhari‘s @NigeriaGov on #EndSARS? Not clear at all.
“Where is the President? Where really is the President at a time like this?
“Go to where your young citizens are and engage them on their own turf. These folks are not backing down.”
