SARS operatives made Rivers State ungovernable



The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, has expressed his discontent at the unprofessionalism conduct of the disbanded Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).


The governor in a press statement on Saturday claimed the unit made the state ungovernable for him.

The statement which he posted on Twitter reads; “I call for a total reform of the entire security agencies beginning with the Nigeria Police Force.

“From the beginning, we in Rivers state suffered in the hands of SARS operatives as they killed innocent people and made the state ungovernable.

“They even killed a polytechnic lecturer. We cried but they reduced it to politics. The Media tagged us Rivers of Blood when we had security issues.


“If we are sincere in this country, what affects one part of the country will be taken seriously by others. Unfortunately, we politicise everything. Let us practice true federalism.

“You cannot support community policing and say State Police will be controlled by Governors.


“The recent appointment of an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari as a National Commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) violates the provisions of the Constitution.


Wike also attacked the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo led National Economic Council, NEC, directive that state governors should immediately establish state-based special security and human rights committee to supervise the newly formed police tactical units and all other security agencies.

According to him, such recommendation indicated the Federal Government is trivialising the demands of the ENDSARS protesters.

“State Governors cannot take charge of Tactical Commands because they cannot employ or discipline anyone who errs.


“Now the Federal Government wants us to set up another commission of inquiry when the report of the last one we set up was not implemente,” Wike complained.

Wike has been vindicated. Sars was the weapon the north used to destabilize Rivers.

Sad
It is like they are trained never to trust anyone beside themselves.

Young man on dreadlock is a cultist

Young Man on tatoo is a hard drug peddler

Young Man with expensive phone and laptop is an Internet fraudster

Youth who drives a flashy car is a ritualist


Their manner of profiling criminals makes an average young man a suspect. Whoever is suspected is harrased. The lack of respect for human right has led to the loss of trust from the youth. The experience or withness of violence whenever any youth encounters the men with red cap causes a long term distrust.


The youth do not want a change of name but a change in attitude. The confidence the youth have in the uniform men to has gone so low that it would take a consistent extra ordinary effort from them to win it back. The youth want the police to publicize the policies and procedures the police use. The youth want to know when an officer is free to use force. We want to know how to act so they do not have to legally apply force on us . We want a police force that is constantly trained in ethics and integrity. Detering officers should be punnished for violating this rules. punnished officers should have their names published .The youth want a police force that sees themselves as equal to others. We want a police force that talk to us calmly and politely. Shouts and insult raises anger . During monthly environmental sanitation excercise, police should not only punnish offenders. Rather men on uniform should join and pack the dirt . They should engage in other non enforcement activities with the community. This creates a sence of togetherness and not one of superiority. Gradually,the people would see the officer of the law as partners and not devil to be feared. This will ensure maximum coorpeation.

This fool is blaming SARS
You use them to stop the arrest of corrupt judges
You used them to arrest pilots
You used them to demolish a poor man hotel
You used them to win election
You used them to fight Amaechi, only fools will forget commissioner MBU
Now you have started blaming them and some foolish youths will start singing praises for you the way they sing for Abaribe.
NB. Is it SARS that stop you from paying minimum wage?
Is it SARS that make you to bribe judges with SUVs?
Is it SARS that make you to bribe judges with houses while the number of unemployment is swelling in your state?
Wike can only fool ipobs.

The aim behind #EndSARS protest has been achieved or about to(if not), let's all throw our support behind these essential demands

This should be our concern NOW.




THE 7-POINT DEMANDS
Concerned Nigerian started this petition to Nigerian government and 1 other
We recognize that this moment is the culmination of decades of dissatisfaction over the decay and corruption of our dear country, Nigeria.
We find the unhealthy haste to fashion a unit termed “SWAT” to be a misrepresentation of the 5for5 demand. It is not enough.
This protest is beyond #EndSARS, #EndSWAT, #EndPoliceBrutality. This movement is for the soul of Nigeria. We are demanding a systemic overhaul of governance and institutional reforms as the barest minimum. We are better than what obtains presently; we demand progress.
We are not vain agitators. We are clear-eyed youths and professionals in our respective fields who are tired of the way and manner our dear country has been run aground by successive administrations. We cannot idly stand by whilst our future and that of our children are mortgaged.
Below is the updated 7-point demand that concerned citizens are asking from the government.
1. INSTITUTIONAL REFORMS (SECURITY)
That the 5-point demand to release arrested protesters, compensate families of victims, investigate and prosecute all reports of misconduct, proscribe SARS and review the welfare of police be implemented immediately.
However, we believe the systemic rot in the police is widespread across Government institutions. Therefore, we urgently demand an immediate Institutional reform across all federal government institutions, agencies and parastatals, especially focused on national security.
Focus will be on improved welfare and terms of service for the police, military and all law enforcement agencies, provide body worn cameras for operation, refurbished housing, health, academic and pre- and post-retirement life insurance policy for the rank-and-file personnel.
Also reforms on adherence to the laws guiding discipline and prosecution of erring service men this should be aimed at extinguishing all notions of impunity.
2) COST OF GOVERNANCE
We have watched over the years the waste associated with governing Nigeria. We have noted the duplication and unprofessionalism in the civil service and across all strata.
We demand an urgent budgetary framework with 50% capital expenditure and 50% recurrent expenditure in all appropriation bill.
We demand a drastic reduction in the cost of governance. We also demand that the national assembly, be first by streamlined into a unicameral legislative and be further stripped down to become a part time job.
The huge salaries and benefits accorded them by the Revenue Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) should be reduced to the barest minimum.
3) CONSTITUTION REFORMS
There had been several constitutional reviews where youths were obviously absent. Whether by omission or commission or both, the time has come for an informed and progressive participation by the youths.
The Nigerian constitution as it exists presently does not serve all Nigerians. A more robust and engaged constitution designed and approved by all Nigerians will serve the nation.
We demand an urgent referendum within 90 days to begin the line-by-line review, reconstruction and upgrade of the extant constitution to be more functional for a 21st Century nation. The selection process for this referendum will have 50% young people under 60 nominated by their peers in a transparent, judicious and fair process.
We demand that credence be given to terms of citizenship over indigeneship and state of residence over state of origin.
4) EDUCATION REFORMS
· One in every five of the world's out-of-school children is a Nigerian child. About 13.2 million Nigerian children aged 5-14 years are not in school. The impact of this numbers will be felt for generations.
· We demand that a state of emergency is declared in the education sector and demand increase in the budgetary allocation to educational sector by 50% and to double again within the next 24 months. This funds will be used to drive the education sector to provide affordable quality education to all citizens.
· A certain percentage of this allocation should be devoted to granting scholarship to outstanding Nigerians without recourse to the tribe, religious or sex.
· We demand a systemic overhaul in our curriculum and method of teaching to upgrade to a digital experience.
· We demand that teachers should be incentivized to attract the best brains and should be standardized and professionalized.
· We demand that the parent of any child not in primary school will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
· We demand that there be an Annual independent external Audit of Fund allocation and project execution: from Government approval to disbursement across the ministry, which would further be used to publish at least an abridged Financial statement available digitally to ensure transparency.
5) HEALTH REFORMS
· We demand that a state of emergency is declared in the health sector and demand increase in the budgetary allocation to health sector by 50%
· We demand mandatory health insurance for the vulnerable population in our society as NHIS is not doing enough to serve all Nigerians.
· We demand that adequate provision be put in place to protect the rights and privileges of physically challenged citizens in Nigeria.
· We demand urgent attention to mental health and a fund to set aside to create more professionals.
· We demand proper implementation of the National Health Act of 2014, including the Basic Health Care Provision Fund).
· We demand that there be an Annual independent external Audit of Fund allocation and project execution: from Government approval to disbursement across the ministry, which would further be used to publish at least an abridged Financial statement available digitally to ensure transparency.
6) YOUTH AFFAIRS REFORM
We have noted the giant strides made by Gen Z and Millennials across the globe. Many multi-billion corporations where founded by both generations. In Nigeria, it is extremely difficult for such to occur. The enabling environment viz-a-viz investors and lenders confidence, stable interest rate and manageable inflation are deficit in our dear nation.
· We demand that a state of emergency be declared in the ministry of Youths and Sports, Ministry of Science and Technology and Ministry of National Planning. We demand that this should be adequately funded, sports academy should be revamped.
· We demand the creation of the Youth development funds dedicated to growing the creative industries and agriculture.
· We demand the creation of the Youth development funds dedicated to growing the creative industries and agriculture.
· We demand that the Not-Too-Young to run bill should be expanded to include–50% inclusion of youth under 40 in every cabinet in government.
· We demand that the youth inclusion be monitored by the FCC as they currently monitor state inclusion and the NCDMB and other stakeholders partake in this action to protect our future.
7) PUBLIC OFFICE REFORMS
· We demand code of conduct reforms for all elected public office holders to have themselves and their children use public schools and public hospitals ONLY. Violation of which is immediate impeachment and recall.
· We demand immediate removal of immunity clause from public office holders to make them answerable to investigations at all times when and where necessary.
· We demand immediate resignation of every public officer found guilty of any forms of crimes and corruption they should step aside during investigation also.
· Implementation of full digitization of the judicial process, prison decongestion reforms, with reforms drawn from past projects like the Uwais Report, Keyamo’s ministerial screening address, strict time limits to determination of industries litigations, etc.

I will not call you a fool but you know who you are.
In 2013 when SARS killed 40 pigs in Anambara, who was the president? who was the governor?who was the SARS commander that led the troops?
The commissioner of police in 2014 who wanted to kill a siting governor in Rivers State. Is he a northerner?
The reason why this protest will not succeed is if they allow PDP and ipob to hijack the protest.

Wike is not a serious governor because he knew all the bribes he got from the SARs officials will stop after the disbandment if this SARs people.
Osinbajo"s commitement to ending this brutality and reforming the police would be realisable. He clearly stand by the youths on this and he will deliver even though he's not in charge, he doesn't call the shot but he has been actively engaged with the IGP, DG DSS, Mr. P and all states governors.

If you still thinks wike is sane them you need to check your head because you are in this same category of insanity. He's just playing into the gallery just like other govs.

You can't fault the VP assertions because they remain legit and can bring the reform we youths yearn into realisation. Eve the IGP couldn't reject it. Most of the governors reason with it. He asks the state governor to take charge of swat amongst other thing. This would be helpful to enable police fave their mandates.
