The Awakening

The Awakening

description

Nigeria is a place where the leaders have silenced the voice of accountability. The level of injustice is so great that Lady Justice's blindfold makes her literally blind. Stories we were told by our parents of the impunity of our government were like myths until my generation experienced it. We were suppressed until we found our voice. Even in the face of police brutality, we found our voice. We emitted a sound so loud our vocal cord shook and the world listened. The SÓRÓ SÒKÈ generation. The symbols represents the requests of the citizens. The government in its greed refused it being granted. The youth are wide awake. The time is ticking. The dawn of a new nation is upon us. One where capable youths hold power and hold government accountable.
