    It is locally and internationally shameful on the Government of Nigeria that simple cry and needs of the youths cannot be met by their own Government that having existed for 60 fucking years!

    This is a symbolic scene in Nigeria marking the evidence that the leaders had long exhausted their era of unruly and nonsensical governing. In all forms ranging from the legislative, to Judiciary, and to executive, Nigeria needs totally a new phase!!

    I will advice us the youths to exert of our energies at this point in time more on social media, let’s make more use of international hashtags. We cannot suffer another lose of life please…

    Nigeria must be reformed!!!
