CoalCity Youth Council has called on Nigerian youths to stop street protests, and seek the path of dialogue, in resolving issues bordering on bad governance.
National President, Comr. Ifebuchi Williams Chime stated this while speaking on the #EndSARS protests.
He stressed on the importance of halting further physical protests, proposing dialogue, law and politics as the youths await the outcome of the panels of inquiry set up by the Federal and State Governments.
According to Chime, Nigerian youths must realise that when one stresses on a particular issue too much, it could lose relevance within the populace.
His words “Our voices have been heard, our demands are sacrosanct, our blood spilled on the same cause, but we must deeply ponder about the future before embarking on another protest. Many of us are ready to die to see a working Nigeria but we can’t achieve it through fighting ourselves and government.
“We must give Federal and State Governments time to implement their promises, in order for us not to lose the sympathy we have already attracted locally and internationally”.
Speaking further, Chime noted that, while considering the proposed peaceful protest, it is pertinent to consider that this is Yuletide period.
“Our elderly siblings and aged mummies and daddies are anticipating the presence of their loved ones home after Covid19. Many have already fixed one event or another, such as burials, weddings and other ceremonial activities. Therefore, we must give room for peace at this moment”, he said.
