The All Progressives Congress (APC) has asked the #EndSARS protesters in the country to call off their action, saying the party would support President Muhammadu Buhari in implementing their demands in the interest for peace and unity to return in the country.
In a statement on Saturday, Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the APC national caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni said the party welcomed the decision for comprehensive reforms, including the review of salaries of the police as announced by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Governor Buni called on Nigerians not play politics with the #EndSARS protests to achieve a cheap political point, adding that the crisis required amicable resolution in the interest of the nation.
“To our youth, your message has been heard loud, clear, and well understood. The next stage that must follow is the needed engagement with all the structures of government to address all the concerns around the protest and effectiveness of government in general.
“It is imperative for the youths 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.
“As a party, we will take every step to support the government to bring this unwholesome situation to an immediate end. We will make sure that all those found culpable will face the wrath of the law,” he said.
