Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Finance Minister, on Sunday, applauded the Nigerian youth for their ‘resourcefulness and courage’ as the End SARS protest continues across the country.
Okonjo-Iweala also called on the youths to join hands together for a positive outcome through a one Nigeria approach.
According to her, it was powerful for them to let their voices be heard peacefully.
Newspot recalls that the protests for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, unit of the police have intensified despite government’s announcement of the disbandment of the operation.
Currently, captions such as, “end bad government in Nigeria; end bad governance; end police brutality; Justice for Jimoh Isaiq; restructure Nigeria; reform the Nigeria Police”, among others are trending on social media platforms and also appearing on placards on the streets to indicate that the protest has gradually shifted from its original purpose.
Okonjo-Iweala, in a tweet on Twitter wrote: “I applaud the resourcefulness and courage of Nigerian youth in the #EndSARS.
“Powerful to let your voices be heard peacefully. Let’s join hands for a positive outcome through a One Nigeria approach.”
