On Monday, some human rights activists and civil society organizations staged protests against high levels of security, poor governance, unemployment and poverty in the Ibadan and Osogbo districts of the capital, Oyo and Osun provinces.
The main streets of Osogbo, Osun province, have been occupied by civil society organizations protesting insecurity and poor governance in Nigeria.
The protester, according to his provincial colleague Waheed Lawal, aims to make the province’s residents more sensitive to injustice and bad governance than to die in silence.
Waheed noted that despite the country’s lack of human and natural resources, weak leadership has led the country in the wrong direction, causing untold hardship for the masses.
Demonstrators marching from the famous Freedom Park in the Old Garage and marching through the station, Sahara Correspondents gathered as they called on shop owners around the Fagbewesa junction to join the campaign for a better Nigeria.
Comrade Femi Aborisade, a human rights activist who led the protesters in Ibadan, said that the current events in the country showed that the government has completely collapsed.
Aborisade told reporters during a peaceful demonstration in which protesters marched through some of the main streets of Ibada.
According to him, those in power violated the social contract between the people and the owners of political offices.
Aborisade, part of the constitution, said the government’s primary duty was to ensure the safety and well-being of the people.
The lawyer insisted that citizens have the right to protest peacefully in a situation where those in power are not fulfilling their duties.
Aborisade claimed that the current events in the country need peaceful protests.
“In Nigeria, the government has completely collapsed. There is a social agreement between the elect and the people. This agreement is the government’s obligation to ensure the well-being and security of the people.
“The government has failed miserably to ensure the well-being and security of its citizens,” he said. At least 200 students were abducted in Niger alone yesterday.
“It’s different from other abducted students. Chibok’s daughter Leah Sharibu is still in captivity. Nigerians are regularly slaughtered like animals.
“The government can’t do anything, the Nigerian government seems helpless, so Nigerians are tired of this situation of insecurity.
“The constitution makes the security and well-being of the people the main goal of the government. The government failed to comply with Article 14 (2) b of the constitution.
“Under the same constitution, we have the right to assemble peacefully, as we have done in Nigeria to protest the collapse of the system at a time when a government cannot provide security and prosperity,” he said. .
