#EndSARS: What we must do to avert another protest ― Ikpeazu #EndSARS: What we must do to avert another protest ― Ikpeazu

Abia State Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu has said that the only way to avert another #EndSARS protest in Nigeria is to make the youths happy by providing jobs for them.

 

Ikpeazu who stated this in Umuahia, while speaking on the lessons that ought to have been learnt from the EndSARS protest, explained that if nothing is done to make young people gainfully employed, more problems await the country that could be more catastrophic.
He described the #EndSARS protest which centred on police brutality and extrajudicial killings as a metaphor for everything that is not normal in Nigeria that must be addressed to make the citizenry happy.
The Governor insisted that since the state recognised the rights of youths to make their views known, the hijacking of the protest into a platform for wanton destruction was wrong.

He urged the federal government to undertake a deep study on the remote and immediate causes of the #EndSARS protest with the view of discovering those things that are germane and agitate the hearts of Nigerian youths.
In his words; “We’ve noticed unemployment, we’ve noticed lack of capacity and we have also noticed an environment that does not support creativity. To all of this, I say that we can also look inwards to see the modest efforts of some governments like our own.

“When we started planting the foundation for Enyimba Economic City, we were targeting 650,000 jobs because we know that a day like this will come and this is not the end of it.
