Learn lessons from EndSARS Protest, Ortom tells leaders


The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has enjoined leaders to gain important lessons from #Endsars protest.

Ortom made this charge on Wednesday in Makurdi while inaugurating a Steering Committee charged with producing a paper policy that would chart a road map for youth development in the state.

The governor posited that the EndSARS protest that culminated in wanton destruction of properties and loss of lives across the country should be a turning point in the approach government is run, particularly as it affects the youth.

“The #EndSARS protests across the country had drawn the attention of leaders at all levels to inadequacies in governance and the need to correct them for a better and guaranteed future for the youths.

“You must dedicate yourselves to working to ensure that Benue youths take their rightful position in the social, political and economic spheres of life. I assure you that our government will give you every support and cooperation that you need to succeed in this very important assignment,” he said.
