“When we sit at home, the governments call us ‘Lazy’.
When we protest peacefully, they assault and arrest us.
When a group agitates and demands referendum they shoot and term them terrorists.”

“As much as # Revolution Now protesters want to do good to make Nigeria a better place. The protest looks more like its for a lost cause. Also, in Nigeria, security personnel meant to protect Demonstrators will only arrest them.
@YeleSowore
needs to look into other means.”

“Police, Army and Airforce deployed in Abuja because of a protest but they can’t do this for Southern Kaduna herdsmen massacre.

They’ve arrested and assaulted protesters. This govt has lost it completely. History will never forget and forgive Buhari.
