Bankole Wellington popularly known as Banky W has called on all Nigerians to come together and re-strategise. This call was made after Nigerians realized the country has taken its citizens as a joke. The #EndSARS protest that started peacefully was brutally attacked in various ways by the government. Furthermore, this has caused lots of emotional and mental breakdown for many Nigerians both at home and abroad.
Since the beginning of the protest, the President of the country has been silent about the happenings in the country. However, yesterday, he addressed the Nation by & pm. Nevertheless, an address that should have been like a “soothing balm” has ended up being “salt rubbed on the wound”.
“What do we think about having a nationwide zoom conference? We can share victims stories, talk about our protest experiences, and exchange ideas about the way forward. We can’t lose hope. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. Police reform is just step one, the journey has just begun.
“Sorry guys, just thinking out loud. But if you agree with this kind of collective, open discussion would be good, let’s tag everyone and get the ball rolling. The energy must be sustained. We can talk about what happened and chart our way forward together.
Furthermore, he mentioned some names including victims and survivors of this brutality. He reiterated that there is now a need to come together and re-strategise.
