Nigerians on microblogging platform, Twitter have resumed the call for an end to bad governance in Nigeria with the hashtag EndSARS.

The #EndSARS is currently trending on the Nigerian Twitter sphere with twitter users reminding others to get their Permanent Voters Card.

The outburst follows a comment by the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress and former Lagos State governor, Bola Tinubu, who said he was ready to get dirty to secure the presidential seat come 2023.

The APC chieftain, during a visit to the Olubadan-designate, Dr. Lekan Balogun, in Ibadan said he was ready to be dirty with anyone in his quest to become the President of the country.

He had said partly, “No amount of intimidation can stop me. I am ready to get dirty. I am out to become President of Nigeria. We are at the crossroads.”

This had infuriated young Nigerians who had kicked against the initial declaration of the 69-year-old politician. The #EndSARS hashtag is currently trending to remind Nigerians to get their voters card and make the right choice in 2023 as they noted that social media bants are not enough to stop power-thirsty politicians from getting into positions of power.
