#EndSARS: Address Nigerians Now, Senate Tells Buhari

The Senate has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to urgently address the nation on the #EndSARS protest which has taken a violent dimension.

The Upper Legislative Chamber also appealed to the protesters to stop their demonstrations and embrace genuine dialogue to address the issues raised.

These resolutions were reached during  Tuesday's plenary after a short debate on a motion sponsored by Senator Biodun Olujimi.

Contributing to the motion, Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege,  noted that most of the demands of the #EndSARS protesters are Constitutional issues which the President cannot immediately address.

On his part, Minority Leader of the Senate, Enyinnanya Abaribe, noted that a presidential address will calm the nerves of Nigerians. 

He stressed that the thirty five SARS officials that have been identified as culprits in the various attacks and killings must be prosecuted. 

But Senator representing Kebbi Central,  Adamu Aliero, was of the opinion that if dialogue fails, government should use any means possible to stop the protests. 

One of the seven resolutions reached aftwr tje debate was for government to do everything possible to implement the five demands of the #EndSARS protesters with necessary timelines to rekindle the confidence of Nigerian youths who have lost trust in government.
