Nigeria, a country located in the West Africa used to be a very calm, glorify and most controversial country in the whole of Africa in terms of economy, people, resources and culture, we have been living our lives with the love of the country at heart and in prayers. We have have had series of government succession from the Whites colonization to the military then to today's democracy system of government, that's to tell you we've come a long way in this part of the world.
Over the years, the inhabitants and citizens of the country have been yearning for a good change in the economy and better system of government, but what we've been served with has been false and lies of "We will achieve it". Nigerians like we know are good, energetic, brainy and smart people, but the government and presidency as a whole doesn't seems to make best use of that, so far their family are living fine and in a good state, that's their number one priorities, very bad.
Last year October 2020, the youth took the bull by the horn by fighting for the change we want, using police and security operatives brutality as a cause for the movement, mind you over time, police has been using and enforcing the power bestowed on them to man hunt, brutalize and deprive the civilians their constitutional rights, so bad isn't it?. So the youth took to the streets protesting for a change of hand, government and possibly live a better life in our very own country, I'm sure this isn't a too much to ask. The peaceful protest resulted in road blockage, restraining movement of vehicles and other motorable thing, which lasted for few weeks, until the government intervention which they declared a curfew, using the strategy to hinder and stop the protest, but it it didn't go well with the youth, this resulted in fracas and chaos all over the country, especially the heart of Nigeria, Lagos State.
With the information from the government declaring a curfew, a lot of lives were lost, the security operatives killing a lot of youths, this action spikes and made so many youths angry, which resulted into angry youths wrecking some government buildings and business, could that be a way of government hearing our voices, nothing has been done.
Tomorrow (June 12) is democracy day in Nigeria and the youths have been grouping again to lunch another protest, but this time straight towards the government itself, for them to wake up their responsibility, take the security of its citizen very serious, would that be too much to ask?. Recently there has been a lot of killings and maiming of people in the northern part of Nigeria to the Southern part of Nigeria, which is too gory and awful to behold, yet the government are not doing anything about it, this cause for the youth to speak out on regrouping on addressing this to counter the government and wake them up to their responsibility, until tomorrow June 12, we will know the aftermath and the result of the protest.
Are the youth and the nation at large going to achieve a good result after the June 12 protest?
Thanks for reading, expect a feedback of the protest by tomorrow.
