News: Seven Main Songs from EndSARS Protests Across Nigeria – :::… The Tide News Online :::…

Whether in Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, Asaba or Benin, Nigerians are united with one voice to reject unfair treatment and injustice, as they also demand good governance, while holding government accountable.
As endSARS protests continue across the country, the orders of governors have been challenged and their personalities ridiculed on the catwalks, while love for men and country has taken center stage.
But at the heart of what appears to be a turnaround moment is the use of music, as citizens rally for funds and iconic photos are taken, Nigerians have also used music to convey their messages under crystalline forms.
Here are the seven best songs of the movement:
Fem from Davido
While Fem isn’t exactly a song with a political background, it has been used as the soundtrack for endSARS protests across the country. It was even used to tell Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu to shut up on October 13, 2020.
Jaga Jaga of Eedris Abdulkareem
When Eedris released this song, Obasanjo was president of the country. To think Nigeria was even more Jaga Jaga is sickening now. He sang Nigeria Jaga Jaga in 2004 and 16 years later the song hits the right note. The song documents the perpetual upheavals that are inherent in the country. Jaga Jaga is then an onomatopoeia of troubles and upheavals. In Port Harcourt, song was particularly central to the city’s natural attitude to conflict.
Fela’s Zombie
As grief, tears and blood also flowed during the protests, Zombie, who was dedicated to the military government the year he fought unarmed and defenseless Nigerians, who were literally mistreated and beaten by the government.
Mr. President of African China
When China Africa, Mr. President, participated in the protests recently, as funny as this song was many years ago, everyone could understand the struggle, this melody is the soundtrack of the movement # #SARSMustEnd.
African China released this letter to the president to treat citizens well, it fits the current agenda as central government accountability is one of the reasons we are here.
P Square Oga Police
A little further in May 2005, the now defunct Nigerian supergroup, PSquare released their somophoric album, Get Squared, on the third track, a song called: Oga Police. He also chronicled the evils of law enforcement officials in the country. The long and short story was how a young man was arrested by members of the Nigerian police simply for driving his own car. For its topical resonance, the song fits the purpose of the protests perfectly.
The Burna Boy Monsters You Created
Monsters You Made seems to be the only song suitable for the expressions in these images. If Burna Boy’s PR hadn’t been rock bottom for his inactivity in the battle to end SARS, this song would have been the perfect soundtrack to the protests. Chris Martin sings “We are the monsters you created” in response to the political elite, Burna Boy sang of inevitable conflicts after the citizens had had enough and that was it.
Naira Marley’s Aye
“Aye o le o, Aye o le o Maye le”. It’s Yoruba because life is easy, people make life difficult. The song fundamentally suits the Nigerian government and its tendency to make life unnecessarily difficult for its own citizens.

News: LCC Confirms Perimeter Cameras Have Not Been Removed From Lekki Toll |

Insurance companies in Nigeria will prepare for possible claims, following widespread looting and destruction of property, vehicles and other assets throughout the state.

Most government offices, banks, shopping malls, news houses, toll plazas and private offices were set on fire Wednesday by suspected thugs, after soldiers reportedly fired in the air to disperse protesters on Tuesday evening. This sparked dozens of skirmishes across the state with several vehicles, buildings, and properties burned down or looted by suspected thugs.

It is expected that when things get back to normal, companies will start to take stock of their losses and someone will have to bear the costs. While most insurance contracts exclude property damage due to war, riots, or other forms of force majeure, it is likely that some will pay for the risks.

According to NAICOM, insurance companies paid a total of non-life claims of 64 billion Naira in 2018, up from 56.4 billion Naira a year earlier. Of this total, claims on fire insurance amounted to around 9.1 billion naira while motor vehicles amounted to 17.3 billion naira.

The insurance industry is currently reeling from the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, with the sector posting a 29.53% contraction in the second quarter GDP report released by the National Bureau of Statistics. It is likely to slide into a recession when the SNB releases its third quarter GDP report in a few weeks.

To do otherwise would be to undermine national security and public order. In any case, this will not be tolerated. ” Said Buhari.

The president also called for an end to street protests, demanding that the protesters engage the government. He also called on Nigerians to go about their “normal business” while demanding that security agencies protect lives and property.
