1. Anybody who is protesting currently and demanding for @MBuhari ,a democratically elected government we,majority of Nigerians elected in 2019 to step down is mad!
I am saying again, your wish for the So called "Arab Spring" is dead on arrival!!!
2. From Egypt to Libya, Algeria,Syria & recently Sudan,the leaders of those countries spent over 20 to 30yrs ,they were dictators that kept changing the democratic goal post and changing the constitution to perpetuate themselves in power.
Majority of us came out last year to vote
3. For him. You have a right to demand for #ReformTheNigeriaPolice ,#EndSARS #EndImpunity and #DemandGoodGovernance but the candidate you support can't loose an election and you see this protest as an opportunity to remove my own candidate the majority elected democratically .
4. You have a right to demand for #ReformTheNigeriaPolice ,#EndSARS #EndImpunity and #DemandGoodGovernance but you don't have the right to prevent people freedom of movement by blocking major roads like the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Lekki Toll Gate and Benin-Lagos Expressway.
5. You av a right to demand for #ReformTheNigeriaPolice ,#EndSARS #EndImpunity & #DemandGoodGovernance, bt when you are nt strategic & unwilling to allow reason prevail, you will end up winning the battle ,bt lose the war.
Nobody including @MBuhari is happy with our situation
6. How do we improve our situation in anarchy?
How many of those calling for #EndSARS (have been disbanded) and #EndSWAT put forward an alternative ? How many have read the recent @PoliceNG Act 2020?
Do they think #ReformTheNigeriaPolice will take one week or two weeks?
7. You cant #DemandGoodGovernance only from @MBuhari alone but from your State Government and Local Government.
How many of those protesting have taken advantage of the NFIU Act to demand for accountability?
Has @YeleSowore @kikimordi @falzthebahdguy and co put NFIU to test ?
8. I am in my forties, hate or like @MBuhari ,talking about #DemandGoodGovernance no administration the last 30yrs has shown it's honesty towards giving power to the people and in ensuring they hold government accountable than @MBuhari…
9. Through policies and legislation.
If we are honest and truly want a better Nigeria, let us collectively work towards the greatness of Nigeria,hold your State & Local Government accountable & give the Government time to #ReformTheNigeriaPolice with timeline and most importanly
10. Let the youths get themselves informed and involved in political parties and elections.
You can not be involved in electing you govern you by not voting and turn around to complain and demand their removal undemcratocally.
I rest my case for now.
11. God Bless Our Great Country.✊

1. The @MBuhari administration has refused to tackle fake news since people like me has been clamouring to serious measures against peddlers of fake news & doctored videos.
Today, it is possible with tech to track & trace whoever delibratly want to set our beloved country on fire
2. During the #OndoElection a doctored video was circulated purported to have emanated frm @channelstv ,how security attached to @RotimiAkeredolu wife invaded a polling unit & attacked voters.
The said video would have created serious crisis which one the sole intention,but thank
3. The situation didnt snowball into crisis & the election was peaceful.
Same person(s) obviously has struck again with another doctored video of Femi Adeshina insulting protesters or Nigerian youths, all with the sole aim of getting protesters infuriated

1. Protest started to #EndSARS .
Govt disband #SARS ,came up with #SWAT & Protesters switch demand to Govt must #EndSWAT.
Solution :
Maybe Govt should #EndPoliceNG,grant automatic employment to all protesters into the #NewPoliceNG
So that protester go rest from more demands😂
2. Some might find my above tweet offensive ,bt honestly, I owe no one an apology.
I have read tweets about people saying the beauty about the protest is "there are no leaders" hence ,the ability for government to "buy" people & "circumvent" the protest doesn't arise.
Stupid talk
3. So, even amongst the protesters, they don't trust themselves to be honest and these are Nigerians who all belong to the larger society, professional (bankers, medical,media,security ,legal, engineers, security experts etc) and future leaders of our great country .

1. President @MBuhari has addressed Nigerians and IGP announced scraping of #SARS.
It's time for citizens to collectively work on proposal for reform of @PoliceNG ,stop protesting.
We can't allow the Hong Kong destruction type of protest, when we are still struggling to build.
2. I dont know how True regarding the story of protesters heading to the International Airport, that won't be nice.
When criminal elements hijack protest,they attack men of @PoliceNG or vandalize public or private buildings ,the @PoliceNG would have not alternative to act.
We shouldnt allow things to get out of hand and the government will have no alternative to call in the military.
Citizen have spoken and next is within 90days a comprehensive reform of @PoliceNG should be our focus .
Let the conversation begin with #MySuggestReformNPF

1. After all the protest, I will appriciate if top reasonable celebrities can hold an intellectual symposium on:
1.What defines police brutality?

2. What are the main causes of police brutality

3. What is the most effective way to stop police brutality?
4. Suggest reforms steps to be taken by @nassnigeria for a better @PoliceNG .

5. Create a group that will interface with the @nassnigeria and lobby to ensure the @PoliceNG reform Act is speedily worked on and handed over to Mr President for assent .

I am saying the above,
3. Because after all this shout and everybody goes back without any concrete achievements won't make any sense.
Citizens should bear in mind that not all @PoliceNG are bad eggs ,hence we shouldn't throwaway the baby with the bath water.
Jobbers like @YeleSowore shouldn't hijack

1. My beloved people of Ondo State, as you go out to elect who will pilot your affairs for the another four years, please ensure like the good people of Edo State, you conduct yourselves peacefully, surpassing the record created on Sept 19th in #EdoDecides2020

2. I use this medium to plead with @inecnigeria and all security agencies deployed to display neutrality and raise the bar of competency far about their superlative conduct on Sept 19th in #EdoDecides2020

3. To deepen democracy, which is better than the best military regime is not the responsibility of @inecnigeria ,security agents or the electorate, but a collective effort.
Please, work together for democracy to take root in Ondo & may the Will of the people prevail.

1. A friend on this street of @TwitterNG based in America called me while having a nice with friends late evening yesterday to register his displeasure over my anti @OfficialAPCNg stance on #EdoDecides2020 . He warned I might lose respect if @OfficialAPCNg eventually wins .
2. My specific response to him was I am not a card carrying member of @OfficialAPCNg ,secondly I am nt anti @OfficialAPCNg nor pro @OfficialPDPNig & thirdly I don't av any intention currently of joining any political party despite my intention to pick up a card in @OfficialAPCNg
3. Earlier this year.
I am a Buharist and like most Buharist I know are independent minded and speak truth to power no matter the circumstances .
My stand in the political situation in #EdoDecides2016 is it has again exposed our political system and an urgent need to develop a
