A former governor of Lagos state and National leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has weighed in on the current situation in the country necessitated by a series of protests against police brutally in some parts of the country.

In a statement, Bola Tinubu commended religious leaders for the sense of patriotism in these trying times, but enjoin them to appeal to their teeming followers to call off the protests and give peace a chance.
While condemning the impunity of the defunct sars, Asiegbu Tinubu pointed out to the protesters the swift reaction of President Mohammadu buhari to their agitations and his acceptance of their five point demand, with a promise to implement the reforms.
The political leader stresses that the demands cannot be granted instantaneously by the waving of a magic wand, calling on the youth to exercise patience as the government proceeds with plans for better policing.

He described as rather unfortunate, the role of hoodlums and criminals in the scheme of things, which has led to violence and breach of the peace.
To avoid anarchy and a destruction of Nigeria’s hard-earned democracy , Tinubu sued for peace and an end to the protests.
He also acknowledged the contributions of state governors like Babajide Sanwo Olu of Lagos who swiftly set up judicial panel of inquiry into police brutality over the years, urging other state leaders to do same.
He stated that the process of change cannot be done in an atmosphere of endless protests especially now that the nation is rebuilding the economy battered by the effects of the covid-19 pandemic.
He concluded with a strong appeal to the young Nigerians to call off the protest and support government in the implementation of the demands raised.
