The BOOT Party strongly condemns the recent spate of killings of protesters by the Nigerian Police and other security agencies particularly the Nigerian Army across Nigeria. Clearly, the government missed the opportunity of dialogue with the protesters by not quickly turning their demands into Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time-bound action plan in order to permanently address the impending conflagration and enduring civil disobedience. The government chose the ignoble option of unrestrained and brazen violence against its own citizens. Considering the insecurity in different parts of the country, any right thinking and people-oriented government will not be stoking fire of violence.
BOOT Party appeals for calm from both the government and protesters. The government should not treat this agitation as just "rabble-rousing" that would fade away with the passage of time. This present an opportunity for a "re-set" in the way the government perceives the citizenry by continuing to ignore their pains and pangs.
Finally, government should take specific steps to identify and prosecute the "criminals" that infiltrated the peaceful protesters across the country and particularly the perpetrators of the Tuesday 20 October, 2020 Lagos massacre of innocent protesters.
Thank you and God bless you and God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
