An Open letter to Presisne t Muhammadu Buhari was harrassed by SARS for carrying a laptop. Her own laptop. She was slapped across the face for simply asking why her laptop was being seized.

Mr. President, this is the current state of your country.
The stability of a notation is largely dependent on leadership. And every head of house has one chance to build their legacy.
Sir, you’ve had two,What our country is today is a reflection of your leadership. Your legacy.
I’m getting weary and tired of being optimistic about change but even then I can’t complain. I am one of the privileged few but that doesn’t mean that I get to give up now
So I will speak.
Mr. President, it’s time to lead. I remain saddened by the fact that my country is only an incubator for greatness and and not a habitat.
The world if clearly moving on. With or without us. What will your legacy be when it’s all said and done?I aspire for minor to leave a mark and not a scar.
I urge you to speak to us because we’re not mind readers. Your house is not in order and way far from stable. The people aren’t being empowered, neither are they being protected. Industries such as ENtertainment and Technology that are currently boosting our economy and empowering the youth are being frustrated. All under your engine.
WE ARE NOT ALL CRIMINALS and shouldn’t be treated as such.If there is an increase in crime, it’s as a result of the increase in poverty. We honestly do not know the difference between the criminals and the law enforcers anymore. While there are clearly good people in the force, the bad ones are overshadowing them. The lack of value for human life in our country is disheartening and heartbreaking.
We would have less crime if we had more job opportunities. Criminals would be fewer and easier to catch. The police needs to be our friend and not our enemy. We need law enforcement to work with us and not against us. Contrary to what you may believe Mr. President, we are not Lazy. We are under utilized.
Leaders will come and go, but we the people will remain, we will survive. We always have.
But we won’t forget. Right now, your administration is standing in the way of our survival. If the country is unwilling to e great, the lease you can do is let us be great by ourselves.
Mr. President, you are the Commander-in-Chief. I plead with you to command your troops to stand down.
