Last updated on February 1st, 2021 at 02:46 pm


EndSARS protesters have submitted 23 key demands to President Muhammadu Buhari for them to stop the ongoing protest which has spread across major cities in Nigeria.

Last, only five demands were made, but the list has been updated calling on the APC-led government to yield to their updated demands for them to call off the protest.


23 key demands Nigerian youths want from Buhari

1. End SARS

2. Sack security chiefs

3. Stop foreign medical trips for public servants. Let them be treated here in Nigeria. When last did you hear an American President or a British Prime Minister visit Nigeria for medical tourism?

4. Return Nigeria to regional governance structure or restructure the country and embrace true federalism. States autonomy must be paramount.

5. Improve security

6. Full deregulation of the oil and gas sector to allow more investments for job creation

17. Name and shame looters and make criminal offenders, and looters face trial in their home states and villages to shame them and their families

18. Disband the bi-cameral legislature and adopt uni-cameral

19. Immediately reform Nigeria Police Force and let every state or region create its own police service

20. No more budget for running private affairs of elected and appointed public servants

22. Increase the salaries of our doctors, nurses, teachers, police, military officers, and civil servants

23. Government should hands-off ownership and management of businesses at all levels.
