Speaking to newsmen on the #ENDSARS# incident shortly after the programme, he expressed dismay over President Buhari's failure to address the issue at stake, saying that the president's broadcast fell short of the expectations of Nigerians.
He commended the #ENDSARS# protesters for their resilience and urged them to be wary of hoodlums for their genuine intention of the protest”. It is painful that what started as a peaceful protest has been hijacked and turned into complete anarchy.
He said the #ENDSARS incident is a reflection of nepotism, unemployment, corruption, bad governance and social vices and urged the federal government to offer an apology to Nigerians for the use of military during the protest.
