The fallacy of independence is when so-called citizens think they are citizens when in reality they are simply subjects to their state. Their new conquerors are not in a different shape or form from them. They themselves don't even know what possesses them to perpetuate the colonial subjugation upon those who would otherwise be family. The system they inherited excludes them and gives them a new nature that helps them see themselves as separate and above their masses. It is in the DNA of colonially-inherited state institutions .
The #EndSars protests in Nigeria are a sign of wider discontent and anxiety among Nigerian youths for their future. Nigerian youths face an increasing lack of opportunity. #EndSARS is just a symptom of a much wider decay in Nigerian society. The Nigerian government will be well served to listen and accelerate its efforts towards creating a Nigeria that works for Nigerians rather than only for the 0.1% elite & their foreign collaborators.
