The All Progressives Congress has expressed sadness on the unfortunate tragedy that had enveloped some parts of the country in the last few days by hoodlums who took over what was supposed to be a peaceful protest against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigeria Police and therefore plead with Nigerians to halt the #ENDSARS protests for the collective corporate interest of the country.

In a statement the Chairman Caretaker and Extraordinary National Convention planning Committee and Governor of Yobe State Mai Mala Buni says Nigerians should remember that they do not have any other country other than Nigeria.

On behalf of the leadership and membership of the APC, Governor Mai Mala Buni condoles with the families of the countrymen and, policemen who lost their loved ones and extend empathy to all those whose properties were torched, and pray that the country never experiences such avoidable and unnecessary horrendous carnage.

The party also welcomed the decision for comprehensive reforms, including the review of salaries of the Nigeria Policemen as announced by President Muhammadu Buhari.

Governor Buni urged Nigerians to come together irrespective of their political, religious and ethnic differences and rally around the government to build sanity and strengthen peace and unity to ensure the corporate existence of Nigeria, and the youth to extricate themselves from the activities of the criminal elements who have taken over the protests and perpetrating violence, destruction of property and attacking innocent Nigerians.

He said the APC has joined President Muhammadu Buhari in appealing to the youth to call off the protests for peace and normalcy to return reminding them that as a people, the more peace we have and the more secured we are in the country; the more progressive we all become and the more abundant shared prosperity for our children according to the statement.
