President Muhammadu Buhari has said that it is rather unfortunate that #EndSARS protesters refused to end the protests and give a chance to the government to address their demands.

The President stated this on Friday, October 23 while in a meeting with previous presidents and heads of state. Details of the meeting was disclosed via the official Twitter account of the Nigerian Presidency.

The tweets read;

“President @MBuhari today held a Virtual Meeting with all living former Heads of State and Presidents: Gen. Yakubu Gowon, former President Olusegun Obasanjo, Gen. Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida, Chief Ernest Shonekan, Gen. Abulsalami Abubakar, and former President Goodluck Jonathan.

“The President recounted the initial concessions made by his administration on the demands of youths protesting against excesses of some SARS members: “We accepted all the demands and proceeded immediately to scrap SARS and started the process of addressing the other demands.”

“Unfortunately, the protesters refused to call off the protest and engage the Government to address their grievances. Instead, they became emboldened and gradually turned violent.”

“We will continue to improve good governance through our democratic process including through sustained engagement.”
