Former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari’s government to stop shooting of protesters by security agents.
Saraki, while depicting the shooting episode as a massacre, called for incredible persistence, restraint and sympathy in taking care of the requests of the youths.
According to him, dialogue is the main consistent choice in the current circumstance—and not viciousness, including that It was unsuitable for any Government to turn it’s weapons on it’s own youths.
In his words,
“We must do all that is necessary to protect and engage with them on all issues. Please let the shooting stop and let fruitful dialogue commence.”
”Killing our young and defenseless children under any circumstances is wrong. Period. Killing our children is also killing our future as a nation. We must walk back from this. Mr. President this is what needs to be done. I appeal to you to do the right thing,”
“This harassment and extrajudicial killing of Nigerians must stop immediately and the security agents who carried out this exercise should be brought to justice. No life of any Nigerian youth taking part in a peaceful protest deserves to be taken.”
”This is not the Nigeria that we hope to leave for the next generation. Our young people are the future,” he added.
He noted that although dialogue may take a longer time to work, the violent silencing of protesting youth is not an option.
