EndSARS: What I told UN Deputy Secretary-General – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has given accounts on his meeting with UN-Deputy Secretary-General, Amina Mohammed who paid him a courtesy visit at the State House on Monday.

The Deputy UN scribe who is also a former Nigeria’s Minister of Environment visited the country over the recent uproars particularly EndSARS protests which later metamorphosed to looting and vandalization of private and government assets with sundry allegations of massacre by the military.

In a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, the Nigeria’s leader while giving accounts said that 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,” Buhari said in response to the recent EndSARS protest, and the mayhem and destruction of public and private property that came in its wake.

“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,” the President added.

He said that the current administration inherited severe infrastructural deficits, “and that is what we are fighting to correct. We can’t just sit, fold our hands, and do nothing. We are doing our best within the limits of resources”.

President Buhari also claimed that COVID-19 pandemic has shrunk the global economy, noting that “this is something you can’t see, smell, or hear,” but which has wrought devastation on lives and livelihoods round the world.

On climate change, he said Nigeria was concerned about the recharge of the Lake Chad, which has great implications on security, irregular migration, and livelihoods.

The Deputy Secretary-General said she was on a courtesy call with her team over challenges that concern the UN, particularly COVID-19, climate change, security, and humanitarian responses to the diverse challenges. END!
