Falz And his Father Falana Protest Against Insecurity, Bad Governance In Lagos (Photos)

Nigerian musician, Folarin Falana aka Falz has joined his father, Femi Falana and others to protest in Lagos.

The activists took to the streets of Lagos to protest against the rising insecurity and poverty wreaking havoc in the country.

The protesters, under the aegis of the Peoples Alternative Political Movement, marched from Ikeja Bus Stop to the Governor’s Office through the Secretariat to the Lagos State House of Assembly, chanting protest songs.

The movement is a coalition of groups including the Nigeria Labour Congress and its affiliates, the Alliance On Surviving COVID 19 And Beyond; Joint Action Front; Coalition Of Northern Groups; Green Alliance Nigeria; CONGOS – Edo; North East Development Association and their respective affiliates.

The demonstration, which was tagged, ‘Enough is Enough’, lasted for several hours as youths carried placards with inscriptions such as, ‘No to Exploitation and Multiple Taxation’, ‘Provide Jobs or Unemployment Benefits for Youths’, ‘Provide Security in Schools’, ‘End Kidnapping and Banditry’ and ‘Stop Killings, Secure Nigeria’.

The protesters, which included trade unions, civil society, students, farmers, and peasants, were led by a foremost activist, Jaye Gaskiya.

Gaskiya said the protest was organised to express displeasure over how badly the country had degenerated.

He expressed worry that Nigeria, characterised by extreme poverty, arms proliferation, religious intolerance, the rise of hate, and ethnic nationalism is moving towards social upheavals due to exploitation of the people, greed, and avarice of a spineless political class that has reached its wit’s end.
