The strength of every revolution is in persistency, just like the strength of every oppressor is in stealing the voice of the oppressed.
It is a basic and civic duty for everyone in power to listen to those they lead, especially when it is a conversation that seems difficult to have, but every conversation affecting the lives of the people or even the smallest person is a conversation worth having.
We live in precarious times, where the safest way to go out and come back home as a youth with your life guaranteed is to go out in a convoy. We can’t all afford to do that obviously, and they know this.
Crime of any kind is not defined by looks, possessions, or behaviour, because we all know the biggest criminal insurgence in our country are all conducted with pen and paper.
So why do we have to be policed for simply being young, free, and alive?
Our government has no value for our lives, they have made this clear from the onset. They do not care about the living conditions of the citizenry and if that is so, the citizens must care for themselves. If that care comes in the form of protest, everyone who does not support must either stand by or be silent.
It is time for a change, we must value our lives and know the power of our voice because the media, the one branch of society wielding power unimaginable has failed us, they have decided to be consumed with international policies and not concerned by the local crisis.
If a change must come, if we must survive, we must speak up loudly, and use our voices by all means possible. To help, tweet and retweet #ENDSARS, and join a protest near you.
I would like to encourage everyone protesting, I would like to employ more of us to join in, go online, use your power.
God bless us all, #ENDSARS.
