#EndSARS: Sanwo-Olu To Meet Buhari Today



Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State is set to meet President Muhammadu Buhari at the Aso Rock Villa over ongoing EndSARS protests in the state.

Sanwo-Olu disclosed this in a tweet on Monday evening, hours after policemen shot at protesters in Surulere area of the state, leaving at least one person dead.

The governor had joined the protest at the Lekki Toll Gate earlier in the day and assured the protesters that their concerns were being addressed.

“You have spoken well and loud. One of the things we have said is that we need to do a full police reform,” the governor had told the protesters.

In follow-up tweets with photos of him at the protest ground, Sanwo-Olu wrote, “I was at the venue of one of the #EndSARS protests today.

The safety of everyone involved in peaceful protests across Lagos is important and communicating with the CP, this is what we want to guarantee on all sides. Tomorrow, I will be meeting with HE Pres. @MBuhari in Abuja.

“As a servant of the people, my job is to listen and do everything within my power to act while managing the nature of the problems our people are protesting against. I am proud of our youth and the courage they are displaying in articulating their grievances.

“I identify wholeheartedly with the #EndSARS campaign as it touches the essence of democratic freedom. Citizens must never be denied the right to protest and your voices have been heard.

“A clear pronouncement has been made and Mr. President has addressed the nation.
