Upon the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Dr. Charles Awuzie of Gemsbok Group wrote;
“They were tear gassed but they knelt down, not in surrender, but in patriotic loyalty to their cause.
They were shot, arrested and killed but they kept saying #EndSARS.
The authorities realized that the people are now WOKE
The greatest fear of any government is a WOKE nation who speaks with one voice void of tribalism or religion.
This afternoon, the government surrendered and Ended SARS.
The nation is healing…
Nigerians can now believe in the power of their own voices…
Let the world watch the rising of Africa’s giant….
The revolution has begun….
It’s not Uhuru Yet…
Let’s now ask for RESTRUCTURE, not INFRASTRUCTURE.”
