  1. The NPF is an embarrassment to the nation as the loyalty of its personnel is to the government of the day rather than to the nation. It is people's democratic right to protest, as long as they are peaceful. Why brutalise #RevolutionNow protesters in Lagos while protection pro-government protesters in Abuja? This Government is likely to go down as the most intolerant and inept government in the history of our nation. It is not a discussive government and that is antithetical of democracy.
