The Chairman of the Senate Committee on Defence , Senator Aliyu Wamakko, has commended youths in the northern part of the country for refusing to join the # EndSARS protests.
Wamakko, representing Sokoto North Senatorial District , gave the commendation while addressing a mammoth crowd of youths shortly after his return to Sokoto from Abuja .
He said , “ I am highly elated with the disciplined and peaceful disposition of the northern youths , even in the face of the provocations and altercations occasioned by the protests that turned violent and lost its original focus , as well as intentions .
“ I wondered why the destructive protests raged on even when the Federal Government had acceded to the demands of the protesters .
“ One of the key demands of the protesters was the disbandment of SARS and it was immediately disbanded .
“ Even President Muhammadu Buhari himself had earlier told the youths that they had good intentions , only for them to deviate from the initial noble cause . ”
Wamakko described the youths as the beacons of hope in the country , hence they should not allow themselves to be used by some disgruntled and unpatriotic elements .
