Nigeria Youth Organisations has enjoined Nigerian youths to support the government’s efforts to reform the Nigeria Police to bring about modern policing with human face as promised by President Muhammadu Buhari.
National President of the Organisation, Alhaji Abubakar Wali, made the call at a news conference. Wali also urged them to stop the End SARS protest as it had been hijacked by some self-centred elements bent on disturbing the peace in the country.
According to him, all well-meaning Nigerians must not play into the hands of those bent on creating scenarios like those of Syria or Libya, where lives are jeopardised as a result of unrest emanating from protests.
The youth leader advised the Inspector-General of Police to establish the Police and Youth Relations Committee to address all fundamental demands and proffer solutions to alleged police brutality and corruption.
He advised the Federal Government to establish a National Youth Development Commission in the three tiers of government to address major concerns bedevilling youths in the country.
He stressed the need for the National Assembly to ensure the passage of the Youth Rights Bill as a panacea for ensuring that the rights and privileges of youths are protected.
Wali also appealed to the president to address critical areas such as youth unemployment, women empowerment and social welfare for the citizens.
