Human rights activist, Folarin Falana, a.k.a falz, during an interview with a CNN correspondent, Christine Amanpour said Buhari’s promise to reform the police was frustrating as his administration had been making the same promise of reform since 2017.
When a short clip of President Buhari Speech was playee during the interview, Buhari said SARS was scrapped in response to the #EndSARS campaigners’ demands and extensive police reforms were underway.
Falz, on the other hand was seen shaking his head with disgust as the clip played, saying:
“It’s infuriating, annoying and frustrating. And I think that’s how everyone is feeling right now.
“They have been reforming the police for a long time and we have never seen actual action. They announced that SARS had been disbanded in 2017, 2018, 2019 and now 2020.
They just think we are stupid. It is insensitive.”
‘I am not afraid of dying’
“We have a non-existent healthcare system, for example. We have a seriously high level of poverty; there is unemployment.
“We are in a critical state because of the level of corruption and mismanagement of funds that we continue to see on a daily basis.
“I can have an accident on my way to work and die because the state of healthcare is nothing to write home about. People have to travel abroad to have proper healthcare. Falz concluded.
