President Buhari Reacts To The Looting Of Public Properties Across The Country

The of Nigeria, has reacted to the rampant looting and destruction of public properties in many states across the country.

in a statement released by the presidential media aide, Garba Shehu stated that looting and vandalism will hurt trade and investment growth in the country while emphasizing that families should turn back any of their relatives who bring home unaccounted goods.

The statement reads;

said while his administration is working hard through many pragmatic ways to reduce the hardship of the millions of our unemployed, poor citizens and those whose lives have been thrown into disarray by the harsh economic effects of the pandemic, he warned that resort to widespread attacks and the organised looting and plundering of public and private property in many states are inimical to public good and stand condemned.

A that has launched a massive crackdown on corruption, brought in strong laws for a decisive battle against corruption, pursues loot recovery at home and abroad, and taken strong decisions against those who thought they were above the law, will not fold its arms when an otherwise legitimate and peaceful protest is turning into free-for-all vandalism and looting.

While the administration has, for its part, blocked so many means of looting public money in a war against corruption, it is the expectation that all civil authorities, community and religious leaders in the country must rise against the organised looting and plunder we are witnessing in parts of the country.

Families must turn back children who bring home unaccounted goods, in the same way wives must ask their husbands to return looted items brought home.

What is more, is that criminal actions as we have so far witnessed can weaken and erode the confidence of our people and that of foreign businesses in investing in the economy

Looting and vandalism will hurt trade and investment growth in our country, both large and small industries, as well as our hardworking people in the informal sectors of the economy.

These incidents do not reflect well on any society. They are wrong and condemnable and should not be supported by reasonable members of the society.

In line with this, commends the decision of the Lagos State Ministry of Justice to prosecute 229 suspects arrested by the police for allegedly using the #EndSARS protest to destroy and loot public and private property.

As mentioned in two successive statements on the issues, the and his administration have taken note of the grievances of the people. “We have heard you loud and clear”, he said and has shown a clear determination to take all necessary measures to address the complaints

Nevertheless, the violence must stop. also condemned hate messages and eviction notices to ethnic and religious groups asking to take pride in the fact that our diverse people have been living with one another in harmony for ages.

The right of all citizens to live and work in any part of the country is a constitutional right and will be defended by the .
