SARS stands for Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a wing of the police force in Nigeria (a country of 200 million people);
This unit of police barely attend to robbery or violent crimes but frequently attack innocent civilians, especially young adults, torture, detain and kill without any repercussions or any due process to bring the perpetrators to book;
This situation is currently trending worldwide as #EndSARS and is getting worse by the day;
Government response to peoples demand was to rename SARS to SWAT and the killings continue unabated;
There is corruption and looting of public funds;
Although the country is rich in natural and human resources, unfortunately the politicians and pubic office holders never cease to steal billions of dollars in public funds;
Most of these funds are typically stashed away in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada at the expense of neglected public infrastructure;
It is definite that there are no hopes of effecting a change within such contraption of epic corrupt proportions; and
Therefore we plead with the Government of Canada to assist to effect actions prescribed below.
We, the undersigned, Canadian citizens and permanent residents from Africa, call upon the Prime Minister to:
1. Ban travel of active and current political and public office holders from Nigeria to Canada by revoking issued visas and permanent resident cards;
2. Completely block and disallow medical tourism of current political office holders from Nigeria into Canada;
3. Deny children and wards of political office holders admissions into Canadian schools until police brutality and corruption are addressed.
