APC Governors have alleged that leadership vacuum in the #EndSARS protests allowed hoodlums to hijack the peaceful protests.

This position was made known by Salihu Lukman, Director General, Progressive Governors’ Forum (PGF).

PGF is a body of all Governors elected on the All Progressives Congress (APC) platform.

In a statement on Sunday, Lukman on behalf of the APC Governors said that the disadvantage of #EndSARS protests with undercover or virtual leadership is that potential for leadership recruitment is blocked.

He also listed stalled negotiations with authorities as another downside of this.

NAN quoted him to have said “Thirdly, capacity of the organizers to control the protest and ensure that desired outcomes were achieved is also weakened”, NAN quoted him as saying.

“All these contributed to making the protest vulnerable, which resulted in the sad hijack by criminal elements and the widespread destruction and looting.”

The PGF DG also said citizens and leaders must seek common grounds to transform all structures into active platforms for interest negotiations.

Lukman added that the fear of citizens’ engagement and negotiations had emboldened political opponents “whose credentials are anything but attractive”.

He stressed that Nigeria, as an emerging democracy, must prioritize political compromises through debate and negotiations.
