He said the 17 days Protests across the country was evolutionary. He said, “it was revolutionary in the sense that it is not a one point static protest but a protest against multi-layer level of challenges in the Nigeria state and it is essentially a demand for the full citizenship status of all Nigerians and the curbing of executive lawlessness, governmental lopsided profligacy and entrenchment impunity. It is all about ‘misgovernance’ of system and a system of misgovernance.”
