The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, has urged youths in Lagos State to shun destruction.
He said this during the inauguration of the Agege Pen-Cinema Bridge in Lagos State on Friday.
According to him, youths must learn to communicate their grievances to the government without violence and disruption of peace.
He said, “Don’t copy vagabonds and those who are into thuggery. There is no development if there is no peace. We must encourage peace. The government will ensure that you get the right education. Education is an investment in your future.
“Destruction and disruption will not help you to reach the destination you desire to reach. We will support your aspirations but help the state, ensure peace in our state and country.”
Tinubu also commended the state government for the completion of the bridge.
“Despite the turbulence and crisis of the virus, the lockdown, you are able to continue to deliver this state. You have shown great determination as a government,” he added
Lagos State witnessed an orgy of violence, including killings and arson in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protest.
Deaths were also recorded in the Orile, Ketu, Mushin, and Ikorodu areas of the state, where fights broke out.
Some hoodlums also attacked and set ablaze many public and private institutions.
