#EndSARS: Show your face – Bello tells #EndSARS leaders

Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello has summoned on leaders of the #EndSARS protest to show their face so the government can have a good interaction with them.

This was stated on Monday while addressing the protesters.

The governor said the protesters has showed so much courage in making all their demands known, and his admonishing them to provide their leader for a better interaction with the government.

The governor said it would be difficult for governments to know who to interface with, in resolving some of the issues if there were no leaders, adding that opportunists could hijack the gains of the protests.

“We cannot even appoint people into the various bodies being set up to address your demands without being afraid that opportunists who have no credibility with you are hijacking it,” he said.

The governor warned that despite their grievances, they must resist the temptation of seeking an undemocratic change in leadership
