FG committed to reforms- Dare


By Gabriel Kekong

The Minister  of Youth and Sports Development Mr Sunday Dare on Monday said the Federal  Government is totally committed  to effecting changes in the polity  for the good of the citizens, adding that President  Mohammadu Buhari  led FG would  guarantee  the safety of all law abiding citizens.

“It is  important  to start from the policy statement  made by Mr. President where he issued  a  presidential  pronouncement  disbanding  SARS, set up an investigation  panel to  look into human rights  abuses and a judicial panel. Some of the demands need administrative and legislative action  before they can be implemented.  We have a president  who has been  working to raise the level of trust  by doing what previous  government  didn’t  do.

“We did not have   this level of engagement in the past. Nigerian Youth  are law abiding  and very smart. No Nigerian  Youth  deserves  to lose his or her life  as a result of taking part in legitimate protests  which is enshrined  in our constitution. If there are few people who have lost their lives during the protests, i apologise on behalf  of the Inspector  General of Police “

Mr Dare further said the Changes   clamoured for are already been implemented by President Mohammadu Buhari as well as the Nigerian Police.

“The President  is a listening  leader , hence he has begun the implementation  process of most of the demands by  the protesters. The protests are legitimate and government is committed to reforms.

“The President has listened and the protesters need to come to the negotiation table”.
