Is The Burning Of Tyres By Aggrieved Protesters In Abuja The Solution To Bad Governance?

It's the first day of October and indeed a red-letter day for Nigeria as she celebrates her 61st independence day. It has been a remarkable sixty-one years filled with ups and downs. It has never been an easy road for those at the helm of affairs. The country has been battling with insecurity, a high rate of unemployment and there is hunger in the land.

Some Nigerians still believe that the country will be great someday if and only if everyone unites and work towards a common goal. Nigeria had enjoyed some moments of unity in diversity and people lived together sharing cultures and traditions.

But not everyone is patient for the so-called day in which Nigeria would achieve greatness. Aggrieved protesters took to the street of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to speak against bad governance.

As the killing spree continues and the menace of unknown gunmen surges, some people believe the government need to step up their game in tackling the security challenges or step down.

These protesters expressed their grievances by setting tyres ablaze and carrying placards. Their decisions to set tyres ablaze may not be the solution to had governance. It would be better to organise a protest without any form of destruction and if one has to influence a change, they should go out and get their voters card and make that change happen with their votes.
