The Leadership of the National Assembly has urged the Nigerian youths to bring the #ENDSARS protest to an end.
Calling on the youths to end their agitations, the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, explained that the youth needed to put an end to their protest to enable President Muhammadu Buhari to work on the implementation of their demands.
He further encouraged the president to hasten up the implementation of the reform of the police force for peace to reign.
“The government has responded, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad has been disbanded. All the five demands of the protesters have been accepted. Since such demands have been accepted, then we should expedite action to actualize them.
“I believe that when protesters’ demands are met, their goals should have been achieved. Therefore, there’s need for our compatriots to go back home and give government the chance to quickly and expeditiously implement those demands.”
Also speaking on the need for the protesters to stop the #ENDSARS protest, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, who pointed out that the protest had exposed the weak policing structure in the country appealed to the protesters to sit back and see what happens.
Speaking at the inauguration of the Special Committee on the Review of the 1999 Constitution, Gbajabiamila said:
“For those of us who are out there, we must be careful not to lose the plot. The Inspector-General of Police (Mohammed Adamu) has heard you and he has spoken. The House has spoken, even before now, and continues to speak. The President has been unequivocal and spoke clearly. It is now time to sit back and see what happens.
“The simple truth is that we have a police that doesn’t have the trust of the people and a policing system that doesn’t make for productive partnerships between the police and the communities they serve.”
