The National Leader of the All The Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu has warned the End Sars Peaceful Protesters against bringing a new platform that would result in the total destruction of Nigeria’s democratic process.
The former Governor of Lagos State hinted that peaceful Protesters must not abuse their right of demonstration by impeding on the country’s democratic right.
According to the statement revealed and signed by Tinubu, Protesters must not stop others from movement.
The statement reads partly: “However, the protesters must be careful not to set the stage for the erosion or destruction of the same democratic process that gives them the freedom and right to protest in the first place.
“Their democratic right to protest must not be exercised in such a way that impedes the democratic right of other citizens to freedom of movement, expression and the liberty to pursue their livelihoods.
“The fight for police reforms is surely to promote and protect the wellbeing of millions of Nigerians. It is a contradiction for the protesters to act in ways that will further worsen the economic well being of the very people they are fighting for.”
I also strongly appeal to the protesters that you have made your point and Government has made its commitment to you so please and Please call off the protest.
These are what what Tinubu revealed in his long statment shared via his Twitter handles.
On the other hand, Many Nigerians believe that he sent such statement because he didn’t earn any dime from the Lekki Toll gate which is currently being blocked by these peaceful protesters.
My Opinion: The best option to ask Nigerian government for important things is to marched out and protest.
You will agree that Nigerian youths have been quite and it is high time that their voices need to be heard.
