Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Anita Natacha Akide, a.k.a Tacha has said that the people need to see actions taken before the protest can be stopped.
Tacha made this known in an interview with Channels Television on Wednesday, October 14.
The reality TV star dates that the Nigerian youths are currently giving the government time to take actions because in Nigeria, promises are made but never implemented.
“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,
“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.”
“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.”
“The Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigerian Police, otherwise known as SARS, is hereby dissolved across all formations, the 36 state police command and the Federal Capital Territory where they currently exist,” the police chief said.
“All officers and men currently serving in the unit are to be redeployed with immediate effect.”
