Vice president Yemi Osinbajo on Friday night apologized to Nigerians for the delay in government’s implementation of the demands of #EndSARS protesters.
The Vice president admitted that the process of implementation could have moved faster than the way it is.
“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,” he said in a statement.
He said several meetings had been held among President Muhammadu Buhari, top officials of the National Assembly, police authorities and the human rights commission in order to salvage the situation.
According to him: “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.”
