President Muhammadu Buhari has advised the Nigerian youths on Monday at State House, Abuja, to give peace a chance in their own interest as his generation will soon leave the stage for them in response to the recent EndSARS protest, and the mayhem and destruction of public and private property that came in its wake.
He said this while receiving in audience the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, Nigeria’s former Minister of Environment.
“Nigerian youths would do well to keep the peace, as it is in their own interest ultimately. Our own generation is on the last lap, we are exiting. It is in the interest of the youths to keep the peace. They want jobs, infrastructure and development.
I have sent a team led by the Chief of Staff (Professor Ibrahim Gambari) to go round the country, talk to traditional rulers, who will then talk to the youths.The views of the youths have been heard”.
