The financial hardships of poor working folks have worsened, corruption stinks to the excessive heavens below APC as a lot because it did with the PDP, and assurances of bringing the battle with Boko Haram within the northeast have been changed with the excruciating actuality of generalized insecurity throughout the nation.

“The APC regime’s deceit of “change” has revealed itself for what it’s. We are able to cease this monster and the system it represents solely by preventing in opposition to each infraction of injustice it metes out to us. This consists of demanding justice, as is the case for over 100 folks killed in the course of the #EndSARS protests.

“It’s on this sense that the Judicial Panels of Inquiry into SARS-related killings is of utmost significance. The regime’s lies in regards to the extent of that dastardly demonstration of state terrorism have been torn apart on the Lagos State panel. 

“Proof of the killing of no less than 98 folks has been introduced to the Lagos State panel, with post-mortem experiences backing these. However, whereas the judicial course of continues to be ongoing, the panel has declared that it’s winding up. Based on the chair of the panel, Doris T.

It’s not fascinated with justice as a result of its fingers are lined with the blood of slain Nigerians within the first place.
