He commended immediate action towards resolution of the crisis and justice to all affected persons from the mayhem in line with the laws and Constitution of Nigeria is a welcome development.

“We commend the Governors for their speedy inauguration of judicial panel of inquiry into alleged cases of police brutality at the state level as well as the youths who have conducted themselves peacefully.

“NASFAT requests the Government to accelerate genuine dialogue and consultation with civil society organizations, religious leaders, community elders and youth associations towards implementing the announced police reforms, reforming other institutions, job creation, poverty reduction, promotion of good governance and collaboration for a more just, united, peaceful, prosperous and inclusive Nigeria as was discussed at the Global Youth Summit that the society held on October 1st during the 60th independence anniversary of the nation.
