Former Minister of External Affairs, Bolaji Akinyemi, has revealed that the #EndSARS protesters might hit the streets again if the judicial panel set-up by different state governors across the country does not genuinely address the demands of the youths.
Expressing this worry during an interview with Arise TV on Wednesday, Akinyemi asked the government to give the youths the impression that the panel was not set up to buy time.
Further pointing out that the protest had gone way beyond stomach infrastructure, Akinyemi said that the youths are agitating for a good government that will address the cogent issues facing the country.
“The government should at least give the youths the impression that you have not set up all these panels to buy time, but that you are really genuinely and seriously interested in addressing their issues.
“I will say and let me believe I am wrong, the judicial panels have just two weeks to address all these issues before the youths come back to the streets,” Akinyemi said.
He further suggested that the government adopt the Justice Mohammed Uwais report on electoral reforms and the 2014 national conference report which, according to him, will adequately address the issues currently rocking Nigeria.
