#EndSARS: Government Committed To Reforms, Minister Assures Youths

 

The Nigerian government is totally committed  to effect changes in the polity  for the good of the citizens, even as President  Mohammadu Buhari would guarantee the safety of all law abiding citizens.
Speaking on Monday, 19 October, 2020, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr Sunday Dare said “It is important to start from the policy statement made by Mr. President where he issued a presidential  pronouncement disbanding SARS, set up an investigation  panel to look into human rights  abuses and a judicial panel. Some of the  demands need administrative and legislative  action before they can be implemented.
“We have a president  who has been working to raise the level of trust by doing what previous governments didn’t do. We did not  have this level of engagement in the past. Nigerian Youth are law abiding  and very smart. No Nigerian Youth deserves to lose his or her life as a result of taking part in legitimate protests which is enshrined in our constitution.
“If there are few people who have lost their lives  during the protests, I apologise on behalf of the Inspector General of Police”.
Dare further said the changes clamoured for are already being implemented by President Mohammadu Buhari as well as the Nigerian  Police.
“The President is a listening leader, hence he has begun the implementation process of most of the demands by the protesters. The protests are legitimate and government  is committed to reforms. The President has listened and the protesters need to come to the negotiation table”.
