CSO tells EndSARS protesters to end protests or risk backlash

The Coalition of Civil Society Organizations (CSO) for Good Governance has appeal to #EndSARS protesters to end the protest now that the ovation is louder or risk backlash

The group made the appeal during a press conference in Abuja on Sunday

Comrade Olayemi Success, Chief Convener of the coalition, said that the appeal is in response to the continued EndSARS protest in Nigeria despite the fact that the five point demands had been accepted and approved by the federal government

He said that indicators show that the protest has been hijacked by vested interests hence the latest violence trend resulting to loss of manhour due to deliberate road blocks by the protesters

The Convener said that the protesters may loss credibility and acceptability of well meaning Nigerians if the protest persisted and therefore reminded them to understand that their right to protest ended where others’ right to enjoy peaceful atmosphere, devoid of road blocks, commences.

The group also appealed for urgent resolution of Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) issues with the Federal Government so that students could go back to school

They emphasised that idle minds were devil’s workshop, and regretted that 70% of the protesters are students and being used by vested interests for their selfish purposes.

The Convener commended the Inspector-General of Police, the Nigeria Police Force and other security agencies for their professional conduct in managing the protest.

Comrade Success appealed to Nigerians to continuously give the much needed support and cooperation to the Nigeria Police Force to enable the force attain its mandate of securing lives and properties

He emphasized that the security agencies deserved the support and appreciation of the citizens as they had discharged their responsibilities creditably.
