  1. This report has an extant effect to convey the necessary message to the Nigerian ruling class, that they need to come clean of myopia and put on a thinking cap to consider issues affecting this country. They should divorce themselves of hypocrisy, especially that there are reported efforts to sabotage the ongoing protest. One of the reported cases was what the chairman of the Jabi motor park union did. Let us warn here, that we are being watched. TIME FOR ALL INCLUSIVE CONSTITUTIONAL REFORMS NOT BY THE SO CALLED NATIONAL ASSEMBLY. We are set to have a change.
