EndSARS: The 7-Point Demands by MrTAnonymous(m): 11:22am On Oct 16
THE 7-POINT DEMANDS has been trending
on Twitter since the early hours of today and over 6500 people have signed the petition. The Petitioner is expecting 7,500 signatures.

The demands are::

Concerned Nigerian started this petition to Nigerian government and 1 other
We recognize that this moment is the culmination of decades of dissatisfaction over the decay and corruption of our dear country, Nigeria.

We find the unhealthy haste to fashion a unit termed “SWAT” to be a misrepresentation of the 5for5 demand. It is not enough.

This protest is beyond #EndSARS, #EndSWAT, #EndPoliceBrutality. This movement is for the soul of Nigeria. We are demanding a systemic overhaul of governance and institutional reforms as the barest minimum. We are better than what obtains presently; we demand progress.

We are not vain agitators. We are clear-eyed youths and professionals in our respective fields who are tired of the way and manner our dear country has been run aground by successive administrations. We cannot idly stand by whilst our future and that of our children are mortgaged.

Below is the updated 7-point demand that concerned citizens are asking from the government.

1. INSTITUTIONAL REFORMS (SECURITY)

That the 5-point demand to release arrested protesters, compensate families of victims, investigate and prosecute all reports of misconduct, proscribe SARS and review the welfare of police be implemented immediately.

However, we believe the systemic rot in the police is widespread across Government institutions. Therefore, we urgently demand an immediate Institutional reform across all federal government institutions, agencies and parastatals, especially focused on national security.

Focus will be on improved welfare and terms of service for the police, military and all law enforcement agencies, provide body worn cameras for operation, refurbished housing, health, academic and pre- and post-retirement life insurance policy for the rank-and-file personnel.

Also reforms on adherence to the laws guiding discipline and prosecution of erring service men this should be aimed at extinguishing all notions of impunity.

2) COST OF GOVERNANCE

We have watched over the years the waste associated with governing Nigeria. We have noted the duplication and unprofessionalism in the civil service and across all strata.

We demand an urgent budgetary framework with 50% capital expenditure and 50% recurrent expenditure in all appropriation bill.

We demand a drastic reduction in the cost of governance. We also demand that the national assembly, be first by streamlined into a unicameral legislative and be further stripped down to become a part time job.

The huge salaries and benefits accorded them by the Revenue Mobilization, Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) should be reduced to the barest minimum.

3) CONSTITUTION REFORMS

There had been several constitutional reviews where youths were obviously absent. Whether by omission or commission or both, the time has come for an informed and progressive participation by the youths.

The Nigerian constitution as it exists presently does not serve all Nigerians. A more robust and engaged constitution designed and approved by all Nigerians will serve the nation.

We demand an urgent referendum within 90 days to begin the line-by-line review, reconstruction and upgrade of the extant constitution to be more functional for a 21st Century nation. The selection process for this referendum will have 50% young people under 60 nominated by their peers in a transparent, judicious and fair process.

We demand that credence be given to terms of citizenship over indigeneship and state of residence over state of origin.

4) EDUCATION REFORMS

· One in every five of the world's out-of-school children is a Nigerian child. About 13.2 million Nigerian children aged 5-14 years are not in school. The impact of this numbers will be felt for generations.

· We demand that a state of emergency is declared in the education sector and demand increase in the budgetary allocation to educational sector by 50% and to double again within the next 24 months. This funds will be used to drive the education sector to provide affordable quality education to all citizens.

· A certain percentage of this allocation should be devoted to granting scholarship to outstanding Nigerians without recourse to the tribe, religious or sex.

· We demand a systemic overhaul in our curriculum and method of teaching to upgrade to a digital experience.

· We demand that teachers should be incentivized to attract the best brains and should be standardized and professionalized.

· We demand that the parent of any child not in primary school will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

· We demand that there be an Annual independent external Audit of Fund allocation and project execution: from Government approval to disbursement across the ministry, which would further be used to publish at least an abridged Financial statement available digitally to ensure transparency.

5) HEALTH REFORMS

· We demand that a state of emergency is declared in the health sector and demand increase in the budgetary allocation to health sector by 50%

· We demand mandatory health insurance for the vulnerable population in our society as NHIS is not doing enough to serve all Nigerians.

· We demand that adequate provision be put in place to protect the rights and privileges of physically challenged citizens in Nigeria.

· We demand urgent attention to mental health and a fund to set aside to create more professionals.

· We demand proper implementation of the National Health Act of 2014, including the Basic Health Care Provision Fund).

· We demand that there be an Annual independent external Audit of Fund allocation and project execution: from Government approval to disbursement across the ministry, which would further be used to publish at least an abridged Financial statement available digitally to ensure transparency.

6) YOUTH AFFAIRS REFORM

We have noted the giant strides made by Gen Z and Millennials across the globe. Many multi-billion corporations where founded by both generations. In Nigeria, it is extremely difficult for such to occur. The enabling environment viz-a-viz investors and lenders confidence, stable interest rate and manageable inflation are deficit in our dear nation.

· We demand that a state of emergency be declared in the ministry of Youths and Sports, Ministry of Science and Technology and Ministry of National Planning. We demand that this should be adequately funded, sports academy should be revamped.

· We demand the creation of the Youth development funds dedicated to growing the creative industries and agriculture.

· We demand the creation of the Youth development funds dedicated to growing the creative industries and agriculture.

· We demand that the Not-Too-Young to run bill should be expanded to include–50% inclusion of youth under 40 in every cabinet in government.

· We demand that the youth inclusion be monitored by the FCC as they currently monitor state inclusion and the NCDMB and other stakeholders partake in this action to protect our future.

7) PUBLIC OFFICE REFORMS

· We demand code of conduct reforms for all elected public office holders to have themselves and their children use public schools and public hospitals ONLY. Violation of which is immediate impeachment and recall.

· We demand immediate removal of immunity clause from public office holders to make them answerable to investigations at all times when and where necessary.

· We demand immediate resignation of every public officer found guilty of any forms of crimes and corruption they should step aside during investigation also.

· Implementation of full digitization of the judicial process, prison decongestion reforms, with reforms drawn from past projects like the Uwais Report, Keyamo’s ministerial screening address, strict time limits to determination of industries litigations, etc.

Death sentence for looters.


Electoral reform. We must be able to choose who we want. No more politicians using thugs to force their way in.

Reduction of lawmakers salary by 90%...

Immediate repairs of all federal and state roads in Nigeria.

Reduction of fuel price.

Limitation of executive powers and independence of the judiciary and INEC.


Reduction of political term from 4 years to 2 years. You have 1 year to fulfill your campaign promises. If you fail to fulfill them, you spend the second year in jail for wasting the time of the people.


Transparency in federal ministries and parasatals. Every single penny must be accounted for.


We must give these criminals strict demands. If Nigerians must work, we must be strict with governance.

Well articulated. I totally support this.

I keep saying it that this is beyond #EndSars.

This current Nigerian system has failed and we need to do total overhauling. It's obvious that we the youths are the most affected of Leadership failure over the years.

Northern youths agenda is different, for them every agenda is seen from the perspective of a threat to Sai Baba Buhari from the south.
They will work from opposite direction, only middle belt youths are on board in the North.
That's why they will never accept any announcements from the south informing about the start or end of Ramadan fasting. undecided

This sounds nice on paper but real life implementation? Una go wait taya...
Endsars protesters should add something else that the country needs excluding police reforms... I think the only reason the movement has not been totally ruined by FG is because they’re not demanding anything that matters I have not seen a reasonable opposition to the Endsars movement.
