Popular comedy skit maker, Apaokagi Maryam, better known as Taaooma reacts following her meeting with the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo.
Taaooma alongside other comedians were faced with severe backlash from youths who faulted their decision of dining with politicians rather than sticking to the truth portrayed in their comedy skits.
In reaction, Taaooma enumerated the purpose and discussion held at the meeting.
“Yesterday, I had the chance of meeting with the VP of the federation at the Presidential villa, Abuja.
I urged for the “actual” lifting of the Twitter ban and as well, stressed on the issue of police brutality which hasn’t gotten any bit of change even after all the promises.
I made the presidency understand how important Twitter is for the majority of us (the youths). The SMEs and the very plenty others who make a living via that platform.
The Twitter ban has made so many small scale business crash and disrupted many.
I also made it known to the VP that Police brutality hasn’t stopped and we the youths seem to be the target of that institution. #Endsars was not just to end SARS alone, it was to end all forms of police brutality and irresponsibility.
I hope the assurances I got yesterday will take effect immediately.
However guys, we must know that we the youth make 70% of the population and we have the future in our hands. The next step now is to GET YOUR PVC!!! #ENDSARS #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY #LIFTTWITTERBAN,” she wrote.
