Chairman of Northern Governors Forum, Simon Lalong has disclosed they are working to avoid a second wave of #EndSARS Protest.
The Governor of Plateau state who said this while appearing on Channels Television, added that the decision was reached at a meeting by northern leaders including state governors, traditional leaders and northern political leaders.
“We came out of the meeting with very useful suggestions and a communique.
“We want to address some of those issues that are on ground, to prevail on people not to engage in destructions. Because the #EndSARS protest was hijacked by hoodlums which led to several destructions.”
The Governor also decried the hijacking of the protest by hoodlums and destruction of private and public properties.
“Nobody is saying that initially, the protest was wrong. But the fact that it was hijacked by hoodlums to destroy public and private properties was a matter of great concern.
“So, what we intend to do is to provide opportunities by engaging the youths so that they will be taken off the streets.”
