The group who also condemned the alarming rate at which racism and rape is growing called for the end of doctrine of white supremacists over black or black supremacists over white saying the doctrine of supremacists is an act that endangers peaceful coexistence.
“Looking at the alarming rate at which racism and rape growing calls for concern and we use this occasion to vehemently condemned the heinous act of the doctrine of supreme supremacist as we believe that supremacy was what led to annulment of 1993 General Election by Ibrahim Babangida GCFR.
“Today, as we celebrate 2020 June 12 Democracy Day, we are demanding for the end of the doctrine of white supremacists over black or black supremacists over white.
“The Killing and rape of George Floyd, Alex Ogbu, Uwavara Omozuwa, Tina Ezekwe, and Barakat Bello will continue to linger in our heart not just because we are from a black race but because we are of the understanding that all men are born equal regardless of the colour of their skin and status.”
