Co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls Movement, Aisha Yesufu, has advised Nigerian youths not to be distracted but have their eyes on the ball as they engage in the ongoing EndSARS protests.
In a video message through her Twitter handle on Wednesday, she commended the success of the protest which has yielded some positive results, insisting that they should not get distracted.
“Dear Nigerian youths, you have the government where you want them to be, you are doing amazing, you doing something that you haven’t done before. Pls don’t get distracted, eyes on the ball, forget the distraction, there is nothing for you to fight over, she said.
She told the protesters to “focus on the result that you want, that is what is more important. Yes, we have seen the headline from the government but have you seen the execution?. What is the basis for a committee? can the government bring an execution plan?”
“I see that there a lot of people who have been part of these protests as you would expect and they are trying to discredit it by talking about the protest being monetised, If anybody collects money for protest drive the person out, let those who didn’t collect do their thing”.
Her comments come after the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Tuesday set up a new unit called the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Unit (SARS).
