- Singer Reekado Bank has delivered a charge via his page on Twitter

- Reekado’s post generated different reactions from members of the public
Popular singer Reekado Banks was among celebrities who spoke up during the protest against police brutality in Nigeria and it appears the music star is yet to rest his oars.
Just recently, Reekado took to his page on Twitter with a post in which he made it clear that politicians who have no real plans for police reforms won’t be voted for come the next elections.
His post read on Twitter:
"We are not voting in anyone who has no plans on reforming the police for good."
Shortly after baring his mind, some social media users flooded his comment section with mixed reactions. Reekado was urged to also play a part in educating voters.
Read some comments sighted below:
"Dear @ReekadoBanks do voters education first, and ask Nigerians who never have their PVC to kindly do. If you don't have PVC you can't change anything in the system!!"
"Voting goes beyond Twitter messages. The people that collect rice, beans, N500 to vote are not even here. We need to sensitize people right from the grassroots."
"Chanel this energy to your constituents representatives that’s where the change can be effective. Motions needs to be moved not go to the house and collect allowance for appearance."
"That's the point! They use our needs as their promises when campaigning. They say they have "plans" for us once their elected only for these 'plans' to be ignored."
