Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari has on Monday advised the Nigerian youths to keep the peace in their own interest as his generation will soon leave the stage for them.
He made this statement at State House, Abuja, while receiving in audience the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, Nigeria’s former Minister of Environment.
President Buhari said in response to the recent EndSARS protest, and the mayhem and destruction of public and private property by Youths;
“Nigerian youths would do well to keep the peace, as it is in their own interest ultimately. Our own generation is on the last lap, we are exiting. It is in the interest of the youths to keep the peace. They want jobs, infrastructure and development.
I have sent a team led by the Chief of Staff (Professor Ibrahim Gambari) to go round the country, talk to traditional rulers, who will then talk to the youths.
The views of the youths have been heard,”
