Yahaya Bello To Youths: Another Round Of #EndSARS Protests Will Worsen Poverty


Recommended Posts

Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has expressed that a second wave of the #EndSARS protest against police brutality will worsen the country’s poverty.


Recall that the protest against police brutality and the excesses of the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), staged across major cities in the country, rocked the country in October.

In recent days, there have been calls on social media for the resumption of the movement to protest against bad governance in the country.


Reacting to this in a broadcast on Sunday, Governor Bello appealed to the Nigerian youths to shelve any plan of embarking on another round of #EndSARS protests, saying such a move would be premature, dangerous, and counterproductive.

According to him, there was an urgent need for all relevant stakeholders to take steps that would ensure the country does not witness another round of #EndSARS protests.

He stated that the country was yet to recover from the devastating impacts of the last #EndSARS protests which hoodlums took advantage of after a government clampdown.

According to him, another round of protests will worsen the already precarious security situation and economic recession currently bedeviling the country.
