Former Vice President of Nigeria, Abubakar Atiku on Tuesday warned President Muhammadu Buhari against the use of force on the #EndSARS protesters.

In series of tweets, the 2019 Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) also appealed to the president to ensure that the issues raised by the protesting youths were addressed.

“I am saddened by the loss of lives following the infiltration of hoodlums in the #EndSARS peaceful protests.

“My appeal to the government of President Buhari is that he must not succumb to the temptation to use further maximum force on #EndSARS protesters.

“The #EndSARS protesters are not unreasonable; they mean well and acted responsibly.

“This is the time to appeal to their reason by speedily implementing their reasonable demands.

“The use of maximum force will aggravate, rather than placate.

“When the government shows that it cares, the citizens will fare well. Now is the time to apply reason, rather than brute force.

“And on that basis, I urge President Buhari to talk to the nation, and particularly the youth of Nigeria.”
