President Muhammadu Buhari says he will not allow a repeat of the #EndSARS protests that rocked the country in October.
At a meeting of the National Security Council (NSC) on Tuesday, he said “relevant stakeholders”, including the youth, will be carried along to forestall a repeat.
Dingyadi disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of a meeting of the National Security Council presided over by the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The minister quoted the President as saying that relevant stakeholders, including the youth, will be carried along to forestall a repeat and build a peace process in the country.
Asked whether it would include a crackdown on potential protesters, the minister replied, “On the issue of #EndSARS that you have raised, what we are saying is that government will continue to dialogue, it will continue to listen and will continue to carry all stakeholders along in ensuring that there is no repeat of what happened that destroyed a lot of properties, public and private, individuals in this country.”
