Nigeria’s former President, Goodluck Jonathan has broken his silence on the ongoing #EndSARS protest in the country.
Jonathan had not spoken since the protest kicked off over a week ago.
But on Tuesday, the former President sued for restraint as the protests against the operation of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) continued to spread across the country.
He said: “I implore everyone to exercise restraint as we walk through these challenging times.”
The former President stressed that no Nigerian life should be lost during peaceful protests.
He stated this in a post he made through his social media accounts.
The message said: ‘No Nigerian blood needs to be spilled or life lost during a peaceful protest that seeks to advance our country.’
‘We may hold different views on national issues, but there is no doubt that most people desire the same thing for Nigeria: a place where we can all live out the full potential of our God-given abilities.’
‘I implore everyone to exercise restraint as we walk through these challenging times.’
