How literal can it get when the scriptures said, he that preserves his life shall surely lose it. In Nigeria, a cry for change is a journey 6ft.
One of the most challenging thoughts of dedicating this blog to the #EndSars protest was the ability to find new issues to address. Well, our government made sure there was no shortage of that.

The Nigerian government carried out the systemic murder of its citizens for days leading to the 20th of October. But eventually, on 20th, they could not hide their true intentions, to kill us all.

In less than 24 hours, things seem to not be funny anymore. Terror seems to reside in our pores, do we look to God or do we act. What next?

Even more tragic was two days later, when the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, came on television to address his citizens and took zero accountability for its action.
It is cowardice to not take responsibility but beyond insulting to completely ignore the blood of those they took at the tollgate.

We moving forward now live in a democratic system characterized where the government of the people is characterized by Twitter tantrums, falsehood, and cheap predictability.
We won’t fail to acknowledge our celebrities, our collective voices, international aid, and most especially every member of the Feminist Coalition.
See you Monday for our regular reviews. There will be no protests for now since we have all seen how they treat peaceful protesters in our democratic Nigeria.
God bless us all and moving forward we must take this salutation seriously, Stay Safe.
