The path to act in certain direction is a function of the understanding of social realities. When people are conditioned in a state of false consciousness for a very long time, their eventual consciousness is often disastrous.

In a capitalist- based environment where exploitation and alienation are systematically institutionalized, only few individuals and groups benefit from such exploitative arrangement. In Nigeria, the seed of ethno-religious and regional division has been planted by few people to further consolidate on this systemic socio-economic and culturally-distorted realities.

Karl Marx (1818-1883), a German Scholar had once advocated for a class -consciousness of the oppressed group in an unjust environment. To him, changing an existing status quo is determined by the complete awareness of the injustice inherent in such system. This is a task for all people with common problems.

The Nigeria’s problems are relatively historical. From military to civilian governance arrangement, the issue of development seems to be cosmetically structured and executed. Some leaders have made and still making their efforts but these attempts have not resulted in meeting the yearnings and aspirations of the people.

The on-going protests across various cities in Nigeria are commendable, in as much as, they remain peaceful and non-violent. Protests are signs of consciousness of the mind. Hopefully, the protests won’t be hijacked by interested few who only want the status quo changed to their favour.

These protests should not be seen or described as people’s actions against President Buhari and APC or PDP, they should be seen as actions geared towards a better Nigeria. The protest, will loose its essence when we begin to politicize and allow politicians to hijack it. Politicians will always remain politicians regardless of their party affiliation.

Nigeria’s democratic system is expensive and almost dysfunctional. The 1999 Constitution (as amended) is grossly a misrepresentation of Nigeria. The national bicameral legislature is needless. Having at least a minister from each state of the federation is worthless. Conduct of elections is expensive and economically senseless. These, should be the targets of our protest.

The civil battle to restructure Nigeria should be a collective responsibility. This is our civic duty.

I support protest for a reformed Nigeria.
