#EndSARS: CAN President Urges Buhari, FG To Listen, Meet Demands Of Youths
President of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Rev. Dr. Samson Ayokunle, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to listen to the cries of Nigerians youth and meet their demands as it relates to #EndSARS protests.
The CAN President noted that the government should know that the youths were formidable and they should be adequately catered for by the government.
Ayokunle said this in Akure, Ondo State capital, during the consecration ceremony of Rev(Dr.) James Bayo Owoyemi, as the President of the United Apostolic Church of Christ (U.A.C.C) worldwide.
He appealed to the youths to give the Federal government time to come out with plans for them.
According to him, the youths of the country had woken up to show to leaders that they are not an appendage to society.
He however appealed to the youths to give the federal government time to plan.
I want the government not to trivialise the voice of the youth but to ensure and work assiduously and make concrete plans for them in the developmental programme of the country especially in creating an enabling environment for employment for the youths.
With the way they have spoken, I also want to advise the youths to be patient because Rome was not built in a day. They also need to allow the government to have space to rejig things and make plans for them.
He, however, encouraged Nigerians to be steadfast in prayers for a better country, saying;
If any year is good we need to praise Him and if otherwise, we need to talk to Him the more on the need to make the year better for us.
The situation of the country has shown to us that power belongs to Him and not to us. Any good we received is not because we merit it. It is because of His grace. We need to be humble in our dealings with the Almighty. Appreciate him for the little we have so that he can open the doors for the plenty.
Earlier, the newly consecrated president, Rev. Bayo Owoyemi, urged the government to prioritise the welfarism of the youths of the country.
The cleric added;
The youths of the country have spoken. Let the government listen and rise to its responsibility. What we are expecting after the #EndSARS protest is a positive change in the country.
