 “I’m glad #EndSARS is still trending. Having worked in Nigeria extensively, I have seen and heard so much. So much that is not being nurtured. Far from me to have all the answers, but I’ll use this platform I have been granted for good. Dear @BorisJohnson & @MBuhari please read:”

“And, I am not happy with the UK Government’s response. If us as a Commonwealth cannot do something to help our COMMON asset, youth, then international diplomacy is in the trash can. UK – I’m waiting on you oto. #EndSARS.”

It is encouraging to see that the world cares about the Nigerian youth and their struggles, all with one voice saying – #EndSARS.
