Senator Florence Ita-Giwa, a former special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on National Assembly (NASS), has pleaded with Nigerian youths to end the destruction of public properties.

Senator Ita-Giwa directed her plea on Saturday, October 24, to youths in Calabar, the Cross River state capital, over the looting and destruction of government facilities.

The senator lamented that the violence that has been sparked during the EndSARS protests and the havoc done so far have affected all classes of the society.

Moreover, she admitted that the leadership of the country has failed the youths and, therefore, called on them to forgive those they once looked up to.

Ita-Giwa pleaded:

“Please my children, we are not oblivious of the fact that we have failed and wrong you, your country Nigeria has failed you, the elders have failed you but please stop the violence.”

Meanwhile, the Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project (SERAP) had accused all 36 Nigerian governors of hoarding COVID-19 palliatives while citizens in their states were crying of hunger during and after the lockdown.

Following this allegation, SERAP sued the governors before the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC).

The human rights group called on the ICPC to carry out an investigation into the issue and publish its findings including the names of the states involved in the alleged act.

The petition, signed by SERAP's deputy director, Kolawole Oluwadare, was sent on Saturday, October 24, to the ICPC's chairman, Professor Bolaji Owasanoye.

Part of the petition against the states read:

“It would seem that Nigerian authorities asked people to stay at home as a protective lockdown measure but then failed to discharge a legal responsibility to timely, effectively, and transparently distribute COVID-19 palliatives to ease the hardship faced by the poorest and most vulnerable people.”
