Atiku woos the youth, joins the #endsars campaign

He tweeted:

“The arbitrary harassment of young Nigerians by Police (who should be protecting them) has no place in a democratic society.

The #EndSARS protest shows Nigerian youth are upset and the matter needs urgent attention.

Everyday, we encourage our young people to become entrepreneurs. Buying a laptop to earn a living shouldn’t attract harassment.

I commend our young people for protesting these injustices peacefully online, and encourage the IG of @PoliceNG to take these complaints seriously.

I also urge the National Assembly to look into these complaints, and address the human rights issues. Reforms are urgently needed.”

I COMMEND OUR YOUNG PEOPLE FOR PROTESTING THESE INJUSTICES PEACEFULLY ONLINE, AND ENCOURAGE THE IG OF @POLICENG TO TAKE THESE COMPLAINTS SERIOUSLY.

I ALSO URGE THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY TO LOOK INTO THESE COMPLAINTS, AND ADDRESS THE HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUES. REFORMS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED.

THE ARBITRARY HARASSMENT OF YOUNG NIGERIANS BY POLICE (WHO SHOULD BE PROTECTING THEM) HAS NO PLACE IN A DEMOCRATIC SOCIETY.

THE #ENDSARS PROTEST SHOWS NIGERIAN YOUTH ARE UPSET AND THE MATTER NEEDS URGENT ATTENTION.
