No government has the right to repress citizens, Ezekwesili

Former education minister and coordinator
of the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, Oby
Ezekwesili has condemned the move of the
Lagos state police command, which banned
the February 6th nationwide protest in Lagos,
convened by singer, Innocent Idibia, (2face).

Ezekwesili, through her tweeter handle
@Obyezeks, yesterday said, “Citizens can
decide to agitate on anything, as long as it is
done within their constitutional rights. No
government has the right to repress citizens.
If the Federal Government and the Nigerian
police have a shred of honour and regard for
our constitution, they must recant their
stance against #IStandWithNigeria protest.”

Warning of the danger in stopping law-
abiding citizens from exercising their rights,
she said, “Let the Nigerian government and
the police desist from escalating tension in an
already brittle public space. Stop threatening
the #IStandWithNigeria Citizens. The same
way the previous govt was held to the task is
same way intelligent citizens are doing to this
govt they voted in.”
