Faltz on CNN: I’m not afraid to die, Bukhari’s promise disappoints
Falarin “Faltz” Falana, singer, actor and activist, said Bukhari’s promise to reform the police was annoying and disappointing as his administration had made the same reform promise since 2017.
He said this in an interview with CNN correspondent Christian Amanpour, when they showed a short video of President Muhammad Bukhari’s speech.
In the video, Bukhari said SARS has been phased out in response to requests from #EndSARS activists and that extensive police reforms are underway.
When Amanpour then asked him how much action he put into Bukhari’s promises, Faltz, who shook his head cynically while watching the video, said, “This is annoying, annoying and frustrating. And I think everyone feels that way now.
“They have been reforming the police for a long time and we have never seen concrete action. They announced that SARS was disbanded in 2017, 2018, 2019, and now in 2020.
“They just think we’re stupid. He was numb. “
‘I’m not afraid to die’
When Amanpour asked him if he was afraid because many young people refused to appear in front of the camera, Faltz said he was not afraid for his life, as the situation in Nigeria made death commonplace.
Faltz told Amanpur, “I am not afraid for my life because where we are now I feel that I can easily die for something else anyway.
“For example, we have a non-existent healthcare system. We have a very high poverty rate; there is unemployment.
“We are in critical condition due to the level of corruption and misuse of funds that we continue to face on a daily basis.
“I could get into an accident on the way to work and die because there is nothing special about my health. People must travel abroad to receive adequate medical care.
“We constantly say that every Nigerian is tired of dying.
“So what kind of life am I living? Why should I be afraid of death? I’m going to die anyway, so what’s the point? – asked Falz Amanpura.
