On 12 June, Nigerians in many parts of the country took to the streets to protest against the government of sellout muhammadu buhari. The peaceful protests were held because of worsening insecurity caused by terrible governance and were planned to coincide with Nigeria’s Democracy Day.
According to AllAfrica, Democracy Day is celebrated in remembrance of the June 12 1993 presidential election, the fairest and freest in Nigeria, where Mashood Abiola won. That election was then annulled by the sellout military regime of ibrahim babangida. Abiola was arrested by the regime after declaring himself president and later died in prison after going through the torture of solitary confinement in 1998. The circumstances of his death were controversial—he was murdered by the government’s sellout regime for sure.
Unsurprisingly, with these renewed protests, the government cracked down on protestors by deploying the pigs. Pigs in Abuja and Lagos fired their guns in the air and fired teargas into the crowd of protestors who were holding signs and chanting, “Buhari must go.” Some protestors were arrested in other cities and some even had their phones confiscated and smashed!
If you recall the #EndSARS protests of last year, none of this is surprising. #EndSARS was similar to the George Floyd protests in the united snakkkes in that it was a nationwide demonstration against pig brutality. Many of the demonstrators were poor and working class Colonized Nigerians who were profiled by the police purely because they were poor and working class, which just goes to show that even in countries where people are ruled by leaders who look like them, not all skin folk are kinfolk.
That’s basically the premise of neocolonialism—white power in blackface, asianface, white power made to look like Colonized leadership. Because of the government’s sellout behavior, Nigerian citizens are experiencing worsening levels of poverty, unemployment (especially youth unemployment), divisions across religious and ethnic lines as well as an increase in child kidnappings. It’s no wonder why Nigerians have risen up against their puppet government.
Earlier on in the month of June, sellout buhari banned Twitter in Nigeria after buhari tweeted a statement which was deleted by Twitter. His saltiness at this perceived attack led him to ban Twitter in the country all together—a move that further proves any “vows” or “promises” to fix the economy are just lies. Fortunately, the 39 million Twitter accounts in Nigeria were able to bypass this ban through the use of VPNs (virtual private networks).
While protesting is good at drawing attention to the problem, the only way to solve the crises caused by neocolonialism is for the poor and working class Colonized masses to have complete dictatorship over their land, lives and labor; dual contending anti-colonial organization. Getting rid of one sellout government isn’t going to do anything if another sellout replaces it. It has to be the poor and working class Colonized masses who take up their own leadership and realize that it will be them and only them to free themselves.
