EndSARS: Resign !! Ondo youth protesters hit Bukhari

When the fourth day of the #EndSARS protest began in Ondo State, worried young people in the state pledged to continue their riots in the streets to try to end the country’s mismanagement.

Young people staged demonstrations in major cities across the state, demanding an end to police brutality, extortion and killings.

A protest on Monday halted traffic on major roads as young people condemned the cost of food and other consumer goods in the country.

They complained that the country is currently in the hands of bad leaders who do not care about the welfare of its citizens.

Omolulo Ibidapo, one of the protesters who is a graduate student at the Akure Federal University of Technology (Akure), said Nigerians were “pushed against the wall” due to various anti-popular policies of the government.

He added that young people are tired of the current government of President Muhammadu Bukhari because of the various economic problems the people are facing.

“President Bukhari has already disappointed us,” Ibidapo said. “Everything in Nigeria is expensive now. I graduated in the last four years and have not been able to find a job since then. Now I devote myself to humble work to keep myself and my youth together.

“So we young people have decided to say that there is enough in this country and we need to bring our country back from this old set of bad leaders.”

Another protester, Yetunde Ibironke, said Nigerians were suffering from poor leadership, noting that young people were willing to take the lead.

He also condemned the country’s deteriorating security, poor roads and power supply, pointing out that Nigeria needs leaders who have foresight and can change the country forever.

“Yes, the protest is aimed at completely ending SARS and police brutality in the country, but we also need to voice our discontent with the state and federal government on other pressing issues that affect us citizens,” Ibironke said.

“We agreed that starting today we want to end bad leadership in this country and President Bukhari must start packing his bags from the mansion because the angry youth of this country are following him,” he continued.

“He did his best, and we advise him to leave this office and allow a new group of young people who make everyone work to come to power in this country. We are tired of a system that doesn’t work and continues to recycle. “

Other protesters also called on the international community to come to Nigeria’s aid, as the federal government is no longer ready to listen to their pleas.

Protesters pledged to resume their street activities by Tuesday, as well as to close all federal offices in the state to voice their demands.
