ONAF Urges FG To Dialogue With Protesters

A socio-political organization in the state, the Oron National Forum (ONAF), has observed with displeasure the nonchalant attitude of the Federal Government of Nigeria to the ongoing EndSARS protest all over the country which has led to loss of lives and injuries to some of the protesters by the police. 

The Federal Government, the group said, must realize that any one who desires peace must work for and cherish justice since there can be no true peace where injustice is the order of the day as it is in Nigeria today. 

They condemned in totality the barbaric brutality of the oppressed people by a democratic government led by President Muhammadu Buhari. The protest, they continued, seems to have a life of its own and spreading all over the country. 

This shows that most Nigerians are totally dissatisfied with the present government. "#EndSARS protest is a microcosm of the fundamental problems in Nigeria. "We therefore call on the Federal Government to urgently end this ugly and unfortunate situation of killing innocent people of this country while agitating for their fundamental rights. "We equally urge the Federal Government to immediately engage the people in a genuine and sincere dialogue to address their demands. 

The group reiterated their stand on the restructuring of the country, saying that it is the only desirable path for true progress and development. "ONAF heartily congratulates and appreciates Nigerian youths for their steadfastness and courage to stand up against injustice, marginalization, oppression, corruption, misrule and nepotism.

 "We appeal to all well-meaning people of this country and international community to their support and solidarity to our people in this just and democratic struggle for egalitarian Nigerian federation. We pledge our total support to this historic struggle of our people.
