Governor Sanwo-Olu begs #EndSARS protesters to vacate Lagos roads


Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has appealed to #EndSARS protesters to vacate Lagos roads and embrace dialogue for resolution of the issues they are protesting against. 


The Governor who made the appeal while swearing-in members of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution at the State House in Marina, noted that the pains expressed and concerns raised by protesters were genuine. 


Asides pointing out that the continuous blocking of roads, government and private offices would slow down the procedure of implementing their demands, Sanwo-Olu added that the federal and states governments have acceded to some of their demands and currently working to implement the rest. 


He said; 


“We have shown unprecedented commitment to the complete overhaul of the Nigeria Police. The inauguration of this Judicial Panel of Inquiry is only the first step in a long line of reformative actions that will lead to a thorough revamp and reorientation of the Nigeria Police. I believe that some of the actions we have taken should, to a large extent, show our sincerity and willingness to address all your concerns.

“Let me reiterate that I am on the side of the young people out there. I understand your pain and I know your concerns are genuine and legitimate. While we are able to immediately acquiesce to some of your demands, some others will require time. We ask you to bear with us as we dutifully work on your demands.

“I will, therefore, like to renew my appeal to you to suspend the protests and create an atmosphere for the resolution of all pending demands. I encourage everyone brutalised by the disbanded SARS, including the families of those who died, to present their case before this tribunal.”
