The NGF says "governors have endorsed the demands by demonstrators for improved governance". The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF), on Monday, said it would address the demands of Nigerian youth protesting police brutality and harassment across the country.
Governors of the 36 states of the federation under the platform of Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), said though they acknowledged the concerns of many Nigerians, especially youths that have been affected by the excesses of some officials of SARS, scrapping it was not the answer.
"...all police officers who participated in the abuse or actions that might have led to injury or the death of innocent citizens must be fished out and brought to book."
Governors of the 36 states of the country have told the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to put his planned creation of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) unit, as replacement for the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), on hold.
The 36 State Governors have scheduled a meeting for Wednesday to consider burning national issues, particularly the ongoing nationwide demand for police reform and the suspended hike in electricity tariff.
Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) says it has been working behind the scenes on the End SARS campaign. The NGF Chairman, Kayode Fayemi, said this on Sunday. His reaction followed criticisms that governors have been silent on the matter.
