The very first thing that the government must concede to Nigerians is the right to peaceful protests.

Never again should we live in a country where citizens cannot assemble freely to express themselves. Sections 39 & 40 of the Constitution are very clear on this.

Once there is a particular policy that the people are not satisfied with, then they must be allowed the right to freedom of speech without the usual government response of police harassment and the bogus charges in court.

Once the rights to freedom of expression and association are gained, we do not need to keep waiting on any particular organization or entity to organize peaceful civil disobedience, as is done in other climes.

Aluta continua, victoria ascerta.
