Governor Sanwo-Olu stated that he cannot summarize the speech President Buhari gave on Thursday night, October 22, regarding the endsars protest.
The President spoke to Nigerians last night for the first time since the EndSARS protest was hijacked by hoodlums.
Governor Sanwo-Olu had an interaction with some of his followers on Instagram where he responded to their comments and questions. See their exchange below.
Different reactions have started to trail President Muhammadu Buhari’s televised speech on the ongoing #EndSARS protests, and the breakdown of law and order nationwide. Nigeria has been rocked by #EndSARS protests carried out by youths protesting police brutality, with calls for President Buhari to address the nation in a live broadcast.
President Buhari addressed the international community, the youths, amongst other issues, but glaringly failed to mention the Lekki toll gate killings.
However, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu in a statement on his Instagram page apologised for the Lekki toll gate massacre. Then one Abiodun asked Sanwo-Olu to summarize the president’s speech which many have not been able to comprehend and understand.
Abiodun wrote: “Sir can you summarize what Mr President said in his speech?? “Sir can you summarize what Mr President said in his speech?? I will be glad if you could 🙏
He responded ‘I can’t’
Some Nigerians took to Twitter to air their views on the President’s speech, here are some:
You ask for speech,you got the speech and now you are speechless.

After Buhari’s speech, the soldiers that extrajudicially killed protesters in Lekki may even get promotions. #EndSARS

I am disappointed by Prez @MBuhari ‘s recorded speech to the country today. He failed to acknowledge the #Lekkitollgate killings. I didn’t see a concrete response to the CULTURE of impunity and police brutality, or to governance reforms other than a regurgitation of “programs”.
