The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, has warned Nigerian leaders that they will face a huge challenge if they continue to ignore the youths’ genuine protest.

Lawan said this during a Senate meeting on Monday said the youth’s interest should be given due attention.

Lawan further added that what may come next after the #EndSARS protest might be inevitable.

“Recently, we had some of our youths protesting genuinely. They were seeking the attention of leaders, and they got the attention of leaders.”

“So, our budget, especially for 2021 should be centered on what to do to provide employment opportunities for these youths.”

“They demonstrated and protested because they could do so; there are so many other people who may not be youthful but are also in the same need, and they didn’t protest.”

“Let’s meet them where they are. We don’t have to wait until they also start to grumble or protest.”

“We should be proactive; we should reach out to them and give them what we can and what they need.@

“That is the only way that we can make a difference in the lives of the people.”

“And for us, elected people, we are going to be accountable. If we escape this one (#EndSARS protests), the other one is inescapable, and I am sure people will know what I am saying,” he said.
