The Northern Governors Forum (NGF) says some hooligans are using the ENDSARS protest as a disguise to push for a regime change in the country.
The governors stated this in a communique issued after their emergency meeting in Kaduna on Thursday.
In the communique which was signed by Simon Lalong, Chairman of the Forum and Governor of Plateau state, the Northern Governors also commiserated with those who lost their lives, got injured and those whose properties were destroyed.
“Concerned by these development, the Northern States Governors Forum met and deliberated on the matter,” the communique read.
“Forum commiserates with those who lost their lives, the wounded and those whose properties were destroyed.
“Forum strongly sues for unity and peaceful co-existence of all citizens and groups of people in Nigeria and urge all Nigerians to see themselves as equal citizens of the country as the unity of Nigeria cannot be compromised.
“The forum regrets the diabolical influencers in form of hooliganism, ethno-religious bigots and even political marauders who are bent on pulling the nation down its knees and pushing for regime change.
“The forum called on all Nigerians to resist these enemies of the nation by supporting Mr. President, the federal government and democracy at large.
“Forum appeal to all citizens to restraint themselves from unwarranted disposition of sentiments, harassment and
intimidation of other citizens resident in their home states. Forum notes that all these are antics of the enemies of the country who are violently pushing for regime change outside the ballot box.
“Forum also notes the heavy presence of external influencers both locally and internationally and called on all citizens particularly community leaders and youth groups to be very vigilant and report the presence of such people to security agencies. The forum called for comprehensive and robust reforms in the police force.”
The governors, however, called for the constitution of judicial commission of enquiry to investigate all levels of destruction and killings during the #EndSARS protest.
They equally called “for greater synergy between the state and the federal government in strengthening the unity, oneness and overall development of the country.
“The forum is in synergy with other governors in the South- West, South-South and South-East to address this challenges of nationhood headlong.”
