…Call for End to EndSARS Protest
The National Union of Road Transport Workers(NURTW) has lauded the ongoing reforms in the Nigerian Police Force, saying that the measures would keep the security personnel in tune with democratic tenets and current realities.
The Union’s National President, Prof. Tajudeen Baruwa, who disclosed this to News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Monday, also appealed to EndSARS protesters to discontinue the protest in view of the destruction to lives and properties trailing them.
He said: “The nationwide EndSARS protests have taken a very dangerous dimension. The protests, which were intended to be peaceful, have been hijacked by hoodlums, resulting in killing of innocent citizens, looting and wanting destruction of properties and national assets.
“We must be conscious of the fact that the national assets being destroyed are our collective property and it will take enormous resources to replace them.
“I appeal to the protesters to kindly discontinue the protest, as the situation has now tuned into a looting spree.
“The NURTW has already directed state chairmen and members across the country to work with relevant stakeholders to prevail on the protesters to channel their grievances to the appropriate quarters.
“The youths should not allow themselves to be used for violence. They should equally decist from burning police stations and killing security personnel.
“We commiserate with families of those who lost loved ones to the protest and pray to God to give them the fortitude to bear their losses.”
Baruwa appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to address the demands of the youths and eqally urged the youths to take the president by his words and end all forms of violence in the name of EndSARS protests. (NAN/Motoring World)
