#EndSARS: Youths are in pains, says Okowa






The Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, has called on all leaders in the country to rally and earnestly begin the process of correcting the wrongs in the society.

Okowa made the call in a condolence message to the youths in the country following the shooting of #EndSARS protesters at Lekki, Lagos on Tuesday.

In a statement personally signed by himself on Wednesday, the governor said “It is obvious that we cannot suppress the voice of the Nigerian youth. They have suffered untold pains and expressed their frustrations in the last two weeks.

“As leaders, our duty is to start to right the wrongs. We need to start the process of rebuilding a nation that works for all.

“We need to take steps to recreate hope for our people, the youths inclusive.

“My dear youths, you have spoken loudly. You have changed the narrative, and the reforms you called for cannot be wished away.’’

The governor reiterated his appeal to the youths to give the Government time to reflect on and take action on their demands.

He described the youths as heroes and heroines, urging them not to allow their well-intentioned protests to take a negative turn.
