Nigeria’s Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, says the National Assembly will ensure that the five demands made to the Executive by #EndSARS protesters are implemented.
Lawan gave the assurance on Thursday at plenary after the Senate was briefed by the Senate Leader, Yahaya Abdullahi, representing Kebbi North on the intervention by the leadership to wade into the matter.
While giving details into the meeting between the Senate delegation and the protesters, Abdullahi said, they met with a view to pacifying the protesters and also extending their commiseration with them over what happened.
According to him, the protesters explained that in the course of their peaceful demonstration, they were accosted by some hoodlums, who they alleged were directed by the police to attack them; which they were able to resolve and had assembled at the National Assembly to inform the lawmakers of their travails.
In his remarks, Lawan, who described the demands by the protesters as legitimate, said the National Assembly would prevail on the Executive arm of government to ensure expeditious implementation.
