The group, which spoke through it arm, the Young Professionals, YP, noted that doing so would save the nation a lot of hassles and give youths the hope that they have not been abandoned.
The YP spoke through the Committee Chair, Dr Barth Shepkong, at the weekend. This is just as the group expressed support for the sustained protest by youths and young professionals against police brutality in Nigeria.
The statement by the Young Professionals was also conveyed via its Instagram handle, @nidoayoungprofessionals.
The group affirmed strong support for youths in the country, while they urged the government to strengthen the legal arm of the government so it could swiftly represent and respond to issues concerning youths, young professionals and everyday Nigerians regardless of their status or networks.
“Our ultimate request is a safe and viable Nigeria as is guaranteed by our constitution. “As Nigerians, we cannot stand by, while our brothers, sisters and parents back home are demanding and protesting for basic human rights and dignity under the law, which includes a reformed policing system in the country.
“We stand with every Nigerian and youth in particular to voice their grievances, to continue to make our voices heard, and maintain a good representation at the relevant table of decision making moving forward.
