Utomi, Falana, activists, Ncfront leaders, others meet today to review # ENDSARS anniversary
ONE year after the aborted # ENDSARS protests by the Nigerian youths to end all forms of bad leadership and governance of the Nigerian State, frontline leaders of thought and activists are set to meet in Lagos today, October 19, 2021 to review the quest to Remake Nigeria.
This was contained in a statement by the Head, Media and Public Affairs Bureau, National
Consultative Front ( Ncfront), Dr. Tanko Yunusa, in Abuja yesterday.
According to the statement, the event, which is a collaborative memorial convergence of non- state stakeholders and citizens of Nigeria is to commemorate the one year anniversary of the # ENDSARS protest.
The event, the statement stated, would also be used to honour the legacies of a veteran Nigerian journalist,
