Presidential aide, Tolu Ogunlesi has lamented that it is unfair to say that the government is not doing anything to acknowledge the demands of the people.

Speaking in an interview on Channels TV Sunday Politics, Tolu revealed that tremendous progress has been and is still being made to meet the demands of Nigerians protesting against police brutality in the country.

He added that police reforms has never been this high on the agenda of any government since 1999.

He said;

“If you look at the 5 for 5, you can see that quite tremendous progress has been made on all of these.

“Never before has police reforms been this high on the agenda of any government since 1999, so it is unfair to say that government has not or is not doing anything.

“I think so far, the government has shown good faith in first acknowledging the demands at the highest level of government. If you go through the list of demands one by one you will see that a lot of work has gone into meeting these demands.”

“As for an independent body to oversee the prosecution of officers; that’s also where the judicial panel of inquiry comes in because they are going to make recommendations and then one point that is important to make is that State Attorneys General have the power to prosecute offending police officers”.

“It is clearly a long term goal among the 5 for 5 demands but even at that, President Buhari last year signed the Police Trust Fund Bill which will ensure that the welfare or compensation of police officers is handled”.

  1. As for me, the government is doing nothing
    You people have deceived the masses so much and now is the time to hold you accountable

  2. It’s not a thing that started today, we have agitating for good governance but government refused to listen to us instead implementing policies that are anti masses. This time around, I hope they will listen and do the needful

  3. A person can apologize endlessly, and even if you forgive them, sometimes you can’t forget the pain they’ve caused you.

  4. Government may be attending to our plight but not as a matter of urgency. All these police officers that we are talking about have brutalize many people in this country that beyond redeem. Is because they are not caution that is why they behave like demigod.

  5. We are law abiding citizens and we always discharge our duty accordingly. But they ride on us like horse which is very bad. Government also should also respect the rule of law because they are the one who made law and also violated it.

  6. Don’t say that again this is totally beyond your mouth. Government is not responding to Nigeria citizen in times of what we Nigerian demand for. President muhammadu buhari is very stupid and stubborn for making silent on Nigeria demand, put end to President muhammadu buhari administration.

  7. Shut up…. We have been complaining for long so now that we have takes the matter to our hands now the government need nothing than to yield to our request….

  8. This is a failed administration! So in meeting the demand of the protesters they need to act fast or resign because they have done more harm than good.

  9. What is government doing? President muhammadu buhari is the cause of this bad things happen on the country todays, he is too silent on everything.
