#EndDSARS: After meeting Buhari, NASS leaders beg youths to end protests

Leaders of the National Assembly have begged #ENDSARS protesters to stop the protest to allow government address their demands.

The President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan; and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila appealed to the protesting youths after their meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, October 18, 2020, in Abuja.

Speaking to journalists after the meeting, Lawan said the government is working hard to address all the issues the youths have raised.

He said, ” Since the protests have taken place and issues have been accepted, the time has come for the protests to stop because government needs to have sufficient time and clement environment to implement the demands of the protesters.

“We also need to have our economy to continue to go on. When you try to stop everybody from engaging in their lawful businesses by closing roads to market and other economy places, we distract the economy of the country and that’s not the best way to go.

“If the issues had not been accepted, there would have been genuine reasons to continue with the demonstrations. But since the issues have been accepted, we should give government time to implement the issues.
“Therefore, I am taking this opportunity to appeal to our youths, who are protesting that the protests have already yielded desired results.

“First of all, they said endsars, that was the beginning. SARS was ended not by the IGP but by the president himself.”
