On Sunday, the first citizen of Nigeria appealed to young Nigerians to stop street protests and fascinate with his administration in significant discussions on Nigeria police force amendment.


President Buhari said young Nigerians should fascinate with his government in conversation that would comprehensively rectify and end all kind of police savage act.

Bujari said this in his message to the maiden National Youth Day celebration, celebrate on 1st of November, 2020 which occured with the African Youth Day celebration.

FCT Minister, Muhammad Bello, who represents President Buhari guaranteed that his government has heard the pleas of young Nigerians.

Garba Shehu who is Buhari spokesperson, said the President as the Federal Government of Nigeria ‘‘now wants to hear concrete and practical ideas.

”You must realize that protests cannot last indefinitely. My government will not lift a hand to stop or suppress you.

”However, the fact of the matter is that other forces and actors will seek to take over your protests that they may redirect them in ways you did not intend and perhaps do not agree with.

”Every successful protest movement the world over has understood that there comes a time when activity must move from the street to the negotiation table. That time for you has come. Do not be afraid of this reality. You should welcome it.”
