My response to UK training of Nigeria's SARS unit, part 2


Read this story: End SARS protests: UK government admits it did train and supply equipment to Nigeria’s ‘brutal’ police unit https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/sars-nigeria-police-protests-uk-government-training-equipment-b1424447.html 

Nigeria is independent. The UK's "help" in training SARS unit is destructive and dangerous. It should have done better. The onus however is on the government of Nigeria to ensure that it uses considerable Nigerian capacity to figure out what our national interest is, and use the most skilled and capable Nigerians in our technocratic institutions and diplomatic service, to project that national interest in a way that improves the quality of our democracy, respects human rights, protects and defends the constitution, for the benefit of all Nigerians, not just a select few. This is an urgent task. 

This is why I say: #Neocolonialism thrives. With friends like the #UK #Nigeria definitely needs no enemies. #EndSARS #EndPoliceBrutality #EndImpunity #SoroSokeGeneration #LekkiMassacre #LekkiTollGateShooting #NigerianYouths #NIGERIABLEEDS #EndBadGoveranceInNigeria #EndPoliceBrutalityInNigeriaNow #endswatinnigeria
