The African Democratic Congress (ADC) on Sunday charged the Federal Government to urgently address the concerns of Nigerian youths to prevent the situation from getting out of control.
The party’s National Chairman, Chief Ralphs Nwosu, who made the call in a statement, said the lingering #ENDSARS protests had revealed the intensity of the anger in the land.
He added that Nigeria’s political class had failed to harness the country’s vast resources for sustainable growth and development over the years.
Nwosu said the time had come for Nigerians to snatch the destiny of the country “from the claws of enemies of the economy who had held the country to ransom for too long.”
The ADC chief said: “The youths are agitating for a fresh paradigm. They are smart kids and Nigerians should not underestimate them.
“When a people have been robbed for far too long, of the same resources they took part in creating, this is usually the end result.
“This is no longer about #ENDSARS or #ENDSWAT. It is about End Impunity, End Terrorism, End Looting, End Vote Buying, End Leadership Insensitivity.”
Nwosu, however, urged the government to address every point on the demand of the peaceful protesters, saying the days of hiding behind a finger had ended.
