KanyiDaily recalls that President Buhari had addressed Nigerians on Thursday following the escalation of #EndSARS protest which turned violent in many states in the country.

The President’s speech received a wide range of criticism as many people condemned Buhari for failing to speak on the shootings of Nigerians protesting against police brutality at Lekki plaza in Lagos on Tuesday night by the country’s military operatives.

However, Adesina, who was a guest on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Friday, said President Buhari’s speech did not omit the Lekki shooting.

According to him, contrary to the belief that Buhari did not talk about the tragic incident in Lagos, the President’s message to the international community was on Lekki shooting.

“It was not omitted. That message to the international community was on Lekki shooting,” the presidential spokesman insisted.

“It is not true. Somewhere in that speech, the President spoke to the international community. He thanked those who had sought understanding before they made comments.

“He was also telling those who were hasty in their judgement to seek more information. He didn’t miss out anything.”

Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari has called on the youths to discontinue the #EndSARS protests and constructively engage government in finding solutions.
