Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has sent his Ministers and aides to their respective states to appeal to youth to eschew violence.
According to the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Sen. Godswill Akpabio, the directive is based on the level of destruction of properties and violence associated with #EndSARS protest.
Akpabio, disclosed this while addressing a cross section of stakeholders and youths in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital weekend.
“I am constrained to address you on the #EndSARS protest which started peacefully and has turned into mayhem and criminality.
“The Federal Government is very serious in addressing the yearnings of the proper #EndSARS protesters but condemned the waton destruction and looting of public and private property.
“The youth should know that they are leaders of tomorrow and should not cut short their life through criminality.
“We are appealing to the youth to cease the protest and come to the table and dialogue. We are very proud of our youth,” Akpabio said.
