EndSars: Leave the road and let’s dialogue – Sanwo-Olu appeals to protesters

Lagos State government release New Traffic rules, Offences and their fines

Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has, again, appealed to the youths demonstrating against police brutality in the State to leave the roads and embrace the dialogue for the resolution of their agitations.

EndSars: Leave the road and let's dialogue – Sanwo-Olu appeals to protesters

The Governor, on Monday, said the State Government had shown sincerity and

willingness to address all concerns raised by the protesters, given the actions taken

so far, including the constitution of the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and setting up of

compensation funds for the victims.

Sanwo-Olu made the appeal during the swearing-in of members of the

Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution at the State House in Marina.

The Governor’s appeal came on the heel of violent dimension assumed by the

EndSARS protests in some parts of the State.

Reiterating his solidarity with the protesters’ demands, Sanwo-Olu said the

pain expressed and concerns raised were genuine and legitimate.

This, he said, prompted the Federal and States’ governments to immediately

acquiesce to some of the demands, while setting process in motion to implement

others changes demanded.

The Governor urged the protesters to be part of the process of implementing the

reforms they clamoured for in the police, stressing that continuous blocking of

roads, Government and private offices would slow down the procedure of

implementing their demands.

He said:

“We have shown unprecedented commitment to the complete overhaul of the Nigerian 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
