Nigerian politician, Ike Ekweremadu has come out to say that the #EndSARS protest cannot be seen as an ordinary protest.

He recently revealed that it quite different from other protests we have been used to as the anger of the youths is well conveyed and meaningful.

According to him, it is time to address the issues that the youths have been pushing because they are tired of keeping silent and seeing everything fail to work.

He added that their demands have nothing to do with the National Assembly and it is basically about government policy.

His words, “The #End SARS protest should not be seen as one of those protests. It was quite different. The anger was well conveyed. Regrettably, criminals messed up an otherwise peaceful protest leaving behind death, destruction, tears and pains. It’s time to address the issues some of us have been pushing.

“Open the private sector space for employment, build industries, modernize agriculture to make it attractive to the youths, invest in ICT infrastructure for jobs, decentralization of police for nationwide security, and treat every part of Nigeria with equity and justice.”

“Their demands have nothing to do with the National Assembly. It is basically about government policy. We run a government of separation of powers. Some observers insist that it boils down to constitutional reform, I disagree. No constitutional reform will be successful without executive commitment.

We have pushed through so many reforms with a constitutional amendment. They were never signed. Including budget reforms, devolution of powers, local government reforms, etc. That is the problem with the Presidential system is too much power is in the hands of the executive. If you have an executive that is not pro-reform, the system will decay. What Nigeria needs is good policies and good intentions on the part of the executive. The parliament is helpless.”

“The various political parties need to make a decision on that while the good people of Nigeria need to show understanding for a peaceful and united country. The Igbo are entitled to their political choices. The party that gives them hope will get their support.”

“Just as Boko Haram has not defined the place of our brothers in the North, militants did not define the place of South-South, OPC did not define the place of Yoruba race, they all got elected presidents of this country in spite of agitation groups, Nnamdi Kanu and IPOB do not define the place of Ndigbo in Nigeria.”
