President Muhammadu Buhari has met with traditional leaders to solicit for support in order to maintain peace and order in the country.

While receiving a delegation of the National Council of Traditional Rulers, led by the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Muhammadu Sa’ad Abubakar III, at the State House in Abuja on Thursday November 5, Buhari made it known that the demands of the #EndSARS protesters were being addressed.

He also thanked the traditional rulers for their calming influence at the peak of the #EndSARS protests.

“I want to once again thank you for the role you all have played to calm down our youths with wisdom and authority. By instilling hope and keeping the peace, you have rendered the country great service, he said

“We cannot allow anybody or group to threaten the peace or sabotage these efforts. We have heard the loud cries of our youth and children, and we are attending to their concerns.

“Strong, transparent efforts are underway to address those rogue elements of the Nigerian Police Force. Simultaneously, the Nigerian Police Force will also undergo the much-needed reform that covers welfare, working conditions and code of conduct that will usher in a more professional workforce.”

“There is no hiding place regarding how we should address insecurity concerns, youth unemployment, job creation, boosting industrialisation and preparing for a transition into a digital economy.

“Your proximity to the people places you in a unique position to communicate and ensure that our response is targeted and impactful in view of your role as guardians of our traditional values and culture.

“Don’t compromise your neutrality because this is what significantly confers on you, your moral authority and legitimacy. We have designed various schemes and taken many measures to soften the impact, despite our own revenue struggles as government.

“More needs to be done to cater to our fellow citizens, not just those in the urban areas but also those in rural areas.”
