#SARSMUSTEND: We Hear Promises But We Need To See Actions Taken – Tacha
Written by MaryGift Sunday on October 14, 2020
A former Big Brother Naija housemate, Anita Natacha Akide says the government must go beyond the rhetorics and take steps in tackling issues raised by #SARSMUSTEND protesters in the country.
“At the moment, we have given the government time. We are all in Nigeria; we hear promises; we need to see actions being taken. Legit action being taken,” the ex-BBNaija housemate fondly called Tacha told Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Wednesday.
“I understand it is not going to happen overnight. There are certain procedures; there are certain stages to how all of this stuff can be achieved.
“At the same time, it is promises that we get to hear. We need to see action, actually. And trust me, the youths are not leaving the streets until we see action.”
– ‘We Need Justice’ –
While calling for justice for those who were killed during the protests which have continued to gather steam despite the ban on the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Tacha admitted that the victims could have been anyone.
“It could have been anybody,” she lamented, reiterating calls for the reformation of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), and government’s implementation of the demands made by the agitators.
“Those officers need to be brought to the book. The police force needs to be reformed; we need justice for the lives that have been lost. We are not leaving the streets anytime soon, I think so.
“We have our demands and we need the government to start working on them.”
