EndSARS: Osinbajo Apologises For Delay In Implementation Of Demands by TheRareGem1(f): 3:54am On Oct 17
"Dear Nigerians, I know that many of you are angry, and understandably so. We could’ve moved faster and for this we are sorry.

"I fully understand how many young people feel. Many feel that we have been too silent and have simply not done enough. These feelings of frustration are justified.

"There are far too many people who have been brutalised at the hands of the police and this is unacceptable. We must take responsibility for protecting young people, even sometimes from those who are paid to protect them.

"Over the past week, we have been following the protests, and I have had a number of discussions with key people in the administration that you deserve to be informed about. Transparency, after all, is a key tenet of government.

Several meetings have been held with: @SPLawan, @femigbaja, the Chief of Staff to @MuhammaduBuhari, Chairman of the
@PoliceServiceC2, the IG of @PoliceNG (IGP), the Executive Secretary of @NHRCNigeria, and governors.

"We understand that you want to see action from us and I’m here to tell you that work is ongoing. I chaired a meeting of 36 state governors and the Minister of the FCT (NEC), where we resolved to set up judicial panels of inquiry so we can see justice served, and fast.

"The reason being that only state governors, by law, can set up judicial inquiries in their states. The hearings will be public.

"With Mr. President’s approval, SARS has been completely disestablished, and none of its former members will feature in any police tactical units.

"I am sending my deepest condolences to the families of Jimoh Isiaq, and all those who have lost their lives at the hands of wayward police officers. To those injured, I wish a full and speedy recovery.

"We have proposed that each state government set up a Victims’ Support Fund, which @NigeriaGov will support. This is the least that we can do to compensate for the injustice suffered at the hands of errant officers.

"We also understand that the issues that you’re raising are bigger than just SARS. They’re deep and systemic and we’re undertaking comprehensive measures that will revamp the police by addressing issues of welfare, service conditions and training.

"On Monday, Mr. President also reiterated his commitment to these extensive police reforms.

Dear Vice President Prof. Pastor Osinbajo,

Re: “I fully understand how many young people feel. Many feel that we have been too silent and have simply not done enough.These feelings of frustration are justified"

You have plenty titles,
Plenty food to eat,
Plenty security,
Plenty children,
One wife, no sidechick (for dat side, we pass you Sir)
Make i serious,
Plenty generators,
Plenty cars, even plus presidential jets,
Plenty clothes,
Plenty visa,
Plenty doctors, and ambulance wey follow only you everyday,
Plenty followers for Twitter without doing IFB,
Hmmmn, plenty good things on your asset form,
Even though na zero 'heads' of cattle you get unlike Pa Buhari,
You get plenty English to type on your plenty iPhones and custom Samsung,
You get plenty designer shoes,
Well, thank you for begging us, at least you beg us
But we are still hurting, still crying, still in pain and tears are flowing down our eyes,
You and Pa Buhari must just allow us to protest our frustration in peace
And the Almighty God sees our tears everyday,
Walahi, Haba we remember these words again
"Dia is God O'

Yours loyally,
The Crying Nigerian Youth

Match action with words. That’s what we demand!

Curiously, non of the political parties have released statements about #endsars. Not even PDP the opposition. What does this tell u

They don’t really care about us!

This is responsible leadership but it would have been more honourable for Mr president himself to make the apology in order to assure the citizens & instill confidence.

We may could be insulted were it to be one of those presidential aides like Garba Shehu, Femi Adeshina, or Lauretta Onochie.Meanwhile, why is there a slow implementation of resolutions of a burning national issue like the #endSARS, #endPoliceBrutality?

I think we need to test the government on this one. Modalities are set up. The IGP isn't smart enough or maybe he was hasty wit the SEAT thing. When one is not daft, one will definitely think its just a change of name.

I think that what the VP meant by his assertion, it is quite normal to be but it's just a way of life. The America's black life matter saw a number of casualties and I hope this don't equal to theirs.

The more we have people like Osinbajo who is resolutely commited to reforming the police the better and the implementation as regard who take up the tactical unit would be effectively selected

What kind of nonsense is this nah? What has thr education of their kids got to do with EndSARS palava? If your own Dad couldn't afford such Int'l fee for education, then it's never stated anywhere in our constitution that elites can't sponsor their own wards beyond the shores of the nation. Don't let ENVY kee you here & don't derail our thread - the hashtag is #EndPoliceBrutality!

You are just relaying the same problem we are saying.. more like exonerating yourself.

What is the instant solution?... you and the president are the ones we expect the solution from, not to tell us same problems..

I have a great deal of respect for this man!
It is very rare to see a Nigerian presidential figure come out to admit their errors & pledge to work harder like the masses really want. Even America's Donald Trump never apologised to anyone throughout the BLM Protests!
This is not to directly admit that Osinbajo was laxed in his own responsibilities. He had been proactive enough on this issue. He saw to dragging the IGP to the President long before the hashtags started trending but i guess the commander in chief himself took the issue with levity. Osinbajo himself cannot hire or fire anyone - that is the prerogative of the president. But here we are, soaking up all the blames for the "slow acting" sad
