President Muhammadu Buhari has urged protesting Nigerian youths to give peace a chance as it would be in their interest to do so.

Buhari who made the statement when he received the Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Amina Mohammed, Nigeria’s former Minister of Environment, in the statehouse today November 9.

In a statement released by Femi Adesina, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and publicity, the President stated that the views of the youths have been heard. He noted that his generation is on their last lap of the leadership of the country and will soon exit.
“Our own generation is on the last lap, we are exiting,” President

Buhari said in response to the recent EndSARS protest, and the mayhem and destruction of public and private property that came in its wake.
It is in the interest of the youths to keep the peace. They want jobs, infrastructure, and development. I have sent a team led by the Chief of Staff (Professor Ibrahim Gambari) to go round the country, talk to traditional rulers, who will then talk to the youths. The views of the youths have been heard” the President said

He said that the current administration inherited severe infrastructural deficits, “and that is what we are fighting to correct. We can’t just sit, fold our hands, and do nothing. We are doing our best within the limits of resources.”

President Buhari rued the fact that COVID-19 has shrunk the global economy, noting that “this is something you can’t see, smell, or hear,” but which has wrought devastation on lives and livelihoods around the world.
On climate change, he said Nigeria was concerned about the recharge of Lake Chad, which has great implications on security, irregular migration, and livelihoods.

The Deputy Secretary-General said she was on a courtesy call with her team to flag interest in challenges that concern the UN, particularly COVID-19, climate change, security, and humanitarian responses to the diverse challenges.
