"Futile effort, as the senators, House of Reps members, ministers, Governors, Dep Govs, The president, his VP & such other VIPs don't ply that road, go block the airports and train stations."
Babatunde Boonyamin Ramon
"Failed government. They're only good at intimidating peaceful protesters."
"What has road got to do with the kidnapping go and protest at the government house or the state house of Assembly."
Ekere Ojobo Osemi
"Continue to block the road. Don't go and remove your kids from any school they are in Kaduna. Does any form of protest move El rufai. Can't you see how quietly remove his own son from public school? They don't care about your protest."
"Please go and block government House. They will listen to you and something might be done."
"They've every right to block the highway. Civil disobedience is a moral weapon in the fight for justice. Until our greedy governors agree to let LGA have their full Autonomy and use their grant to hire, arm and train Vigilantes who are familiar with the terrain and all the nooks and crannies of the villages, these kidnapping won't stop. A governor seat on LGA grants while helpless villagers and their children are Kidnapped daily."
