Nigerians begin the signing of an online petition, demanding the government of the United States of America to start the selling of arms and ammunitions to the regime of president Muhammadu Buhari amid blockade by the U.S. Senate over human rights concerns.
Mustapha Bulama, a cartoonist, began a petition to U.S. decision-makers on a well-known platform called change.org. The platform is used to mobilize activist causes.
An excerpt of the petition reads: "We are calling out the U. S. to use its assistance and diplomatic clout to seek respect for human rights rather than attempting to arm-twist the Nigerian government by refusing to supply much-needed equipment".
"The ongoing approach is really eliminating Nigerians and is unlikely to change the behavior and attitude of Nigerian politicians because they are hardly the direct victims of the current state of insecurity.”
Guys, what is your say concerning this petition?
