#EndSARS! 7 points requested by protesters by President Bukhari

Young Nigerians, especially those fighting to end police brutality, corruption and impunity, highlighted a seven-point requirement for the president to fulfill.
The list surpasses previous requests # 5for5 submitted earlier.

More than 13,000 young people have signed the petition on a website (www.change.org) that supports citizens around the world and empowers them to defend their civil rights.

In the new # 7 for7 list, protesters are calling for institutional reforms, government spending, constitutional reforms, education reforms, health care reform, youth affairs, and government reforms.

Read the full statement below

INSTITUTIONAL REFORMS (SECURITY)

The 5-clause requirement for the release of arrested protesters, compensation for victims’ families, investigation and prosecution of all misconduct allegations, a SARS ban, and a review of police welfare must be met immediately.

However, we believe that systemic police rot is widespread in all government agencies. Therefore, we urge immediate institutional reform across all federal government agencies, agencies and semi-states, especially with an emphasis on national security.

The focus will be on improving the welfare and conditions of service for the police, military and all law enforcement agencies, provision of worn-out cameras for work, renovated housing, medical, academic and insurance policies before and after retirement for a degree. and a personal matter.

Reforms in respect of the enforcement of laws governing discipline and the prosecution of the military for mistakes should also seek to eradicate any perception of impunity.

2) COST OF CONTROL

Over the years, we have seen denials associated with the Nigerian government. We have noticed duplication and lack of professionalism in the civil service and across all strata.

We call for an urgent budgetary structure with 50% capital expenditure and 50% recurring expenditure across all appropriation accounts.

We call for drastic cuts in management costs. We also ask that the national assembly be first transformed into a unicameral legislature and then reduced to a part-time level.

The huge salaries and benefits provided to them by the Revenue Mobilization, Distribution and Taxes Commission (RMAFC) should be kept to a minimum.

3) CONSTITUTIONAL REFORMS

Several constitutional changes were made that clearly lacked youth. Whether it is an omission, an act, or both, it is time for the conscious and progressive participation of young people.

Nigeria’s constitution as it stands does not serve all Nigerians. A stronger and more committed constitution, developed and approved by all Nigerians, will serve the nation.

We call for an urgent referendum within 90 days to begin revising, restructuring and updating the existing constitution line by line to make it more functional for a 21st century nation. In the selection process for this referendum, 50% of young people under the age of 60 will be nominated by their peers through a transparent, reasonable and fair process.

We ask you to pay tribute to the conditions of citizenship in relation to the internal environment and the state of residence in relation to the state of origin.

4) EDUCATIONAL REFORM

· One in five out-of-school children in the world is a Nigerian child. About 13.2 million Nigerian children between the ages of 5 and 14 are out of school. The impact of these numbers will be felt for generations.

· We are calling for a declaration of a state of emergency in the education sector, and we are calling for an increase in the budgetary allocation for the education sector by 50% and doubling again over the next 24 months. These funds will be used to push the education sector to provide all citizens with quality education at affordable prices.

· A certain percentage of this donation should go towards providing scholarships to exceptional Nigerians without recourse to tribe, religion or gender.

We call for a systematic revision of our curriculum and teaching methods in order to go digital.

We demand that teachers be encouraged to attract the best minds, to be standardized and professional.

· We ask that the parents of a child out of primary school be held accountable to the maximum extent permitted by law.

We request an annual independent external audit of the allocation of funds and project implementation, from government approval to disbursement of funds across the ministry, which will also be used to publish at least one abbreviated financial statement available in digital format. to ensure transparency.

5) HEALTH REFORM

We call for a declaration of a health emergency and a 50% increase in the health sector budget.

· We require compulsory health insurance for the vulnerable in our society as the NHIS is not doing enough to serve all Nigerians. We call for the adoption of adequate measures to protect the rights and privileges of disabled citizens in Nigeria.

· We call for urgent attention to mental health and funds for professional development.

· We call for urgent attention to mental health and funds for professional development.

We call for proper implementation of the National Health Act 2014, including the Basic Health Care Fund).

We request an annual independent external audit of the allocation of funds and project implementation, from government approval to disbursement of funds across the ministry, which will also be used to publish at least one abbreviated financial statement, available digitally for transparency.

6) YOUTH REFORM

We’ve seen giant steps taken by Gen Z and Millennials around the world. Many multi-billion dollar companies have been founded by both generations. In Nigeria, this is extremely difficult to do. A favorable environment, namely the confidence of investors and creditors, a stable interest rate and manageable inflation, is a deficit in our dear country.

We ask that a state of emergency be declared at the Ministry of Youth and Sports, the Ministry of Science and Technology and the Ministry of National Planning. We ask that this be financed, the sports academy be renewed.

· We call for the creation of youth development funds dedicated to the development of creative industries and agriculture.

· We call for the Not Too Young to Run Bill to be expanded to include 50% of young people under 40 in every cabinet of government.

· We require youth inclusion to be monitored by the FCC as they currently monitor youth inclusion and the NCDMB and other stakeholders are participating in this action to protect our future.

7) PUBLIC OFFICE REFORM

· We call for reform of the code of conduct for all elected government officials so that they and their children ONLY use public schools and public hospitals. The violation of which is impeachment and immediate recall.

We demand the immediate removal of the immunity clause from officials so that they are responsible for investigations whenever and wherever necessary.

· We demand the immediate resignation of any government official found guilty of any form of crime or corruption, which is delayed even during an investigation.

Implementation of a full digitization of the trial, reforms to unload prisons, reforms based on past projects such as the Uwais report, the Kayamo ministerial control report, strict time frames for the resolution of labor disputes, etc.
