He said “If the purpose of this protest is to meet your demands and that demands has been met and made public, and government has been giving marching orders, for crying out loud, if you are sincere from the word go, why don’t you give the government a chance?  We can’t go higher than what we have done”. 

“The meeting of NEC comprise all governors of the country, presided over by the Vice-President. A communiqué was read out and we have started the implementation.  We’ve asked all state governors to set up Victims Support Fund; all state governors, not only are you going to have a judicial panel of enquiry, but the composition must comprise of youths, students and CSOs”.
