Gov. David Umahi of Ebonyi state, has appealed to youths to forgive the country’s leaders, noting that the leaders had learnt valuable lessons from the prevailing disturbing situation.
According to the Premium Times online platform, Umahi, who made the appeal yesterday during an address to the people of the state, insisted that the country needed to move forward after the killings and destruction of valuable properties.
The governor urged the youth to particularly, forgive the “unwarranted’’ and regrettable’ shooting of unarmed protesters at Lekki tollgate, Lagos, as the South-East leaders were pained over the incident and urged state governments to draw youths closer to their administrations to enable them have a say in the scheme of things.
“I appeal to our people to withdraw from the #EndSARS protest because it is no longer a protest but an orchestrated violence with people imported from other states to destroy lives and properties,” he stated.
