Rev. Sam Adeyemi Adds His Voice to the #EndSARS Campaign

The Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre with headquarters in Oregun, Ikeja, Lagos State Pastor Sam Adeyemi has added his voice to the ongoing campaigns to end Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) campaign that has resulted to an ongoing reform process. 

He tweeted at the lead campaigners, Segun ‘Segalink’ Awosanya, Juliet Kego and Dr. Joe Abah congratulated them on the pushing while adding that the ‘value of life is the foundation of development’.

Pastor Sam Adeyemi has over the years and through his ministry pushed for a better Nigeria. He is a world-renowned leadership expert based on proven Scriptural principles. 

Mr. Segun ‘Segalink’ Awosanya responded accordingly alongside Dr. Joe Abah. 

The campaign to end the brutalities by SARS has been one campaign that is recurrent with over 2 million tweets and counting. 

The Acting President Yemi Osinbajo recently directed that the IG of Police initiate an overhaul of that arm of the Nigerian Police. This, of course, caused a lot of celebrations as one of the reforms that social engagement have started.

When he was granted pardon in 1983, Emeka Ojukwu during an interview with a BBC press man said, “Our people must face the fact that the war is ended. They must feel free to…partake and benefit from Nigeria. There must be no inhibition whatsoever…” This video is still available online.

Around within the same period he published a book, Because I am Involved; I think in 1989. In that book, he shared an all-encompassing view about Nigeria and when describing his view about the Igbo; Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu wrote;  

As a people, the Igbos do have a peculiar problem in Nigeria. We are constantly misunderstood; our boasted dynamism is suspect and our manner considered sometimes brash and sometimes obsequious. If, as a people, we wish to make an impact on the affairs of this agglomerate nation, then we must review our public relations. We have to be less suspect and more understood. We must bear in mind that it is not the Igbo which we are that causes national offence, but rather the Igbo that others perceive us to be. Therefore, our route to national acceptance and social esteem lies not in the denial of our fact, but more in the emasculation of the others’ perception of us. We have, as a people, fought and lost a war. We have seceded and have been reintegrated into Nigeria. If we wish to make a positive input into Nigeria then we must learn to avoid postures that make us a target. The Igbo people must advance into the mainstream of Nigerian politics-isolationism and wallowing in an orgy of self-pity or indeed carrying the banner of protest is counter-productive. If we persist in complaining, weeping and wailing and bemoaning our fate, we risk the bitter-sweet taste of drowning in the brackish waters of our tears. (Because I am Involved, Emeka Ojukwu, 1989)
