Ooni of Ife, Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi Ojaja II says the EndSARS protest is a clear message from Nigerian youths to the government.

He said this while receiving former President Olusegun Obasanjo at his Ile Oodua Palace in Ife, Osun State on Monday.

The traditional ruler hailed the youths for showing leadership through the organised manner of the protests.

However, he appealed to the youths to give the government more time to address their demands.

The Ooni said, “If you look at the #EndSARS protest, you will see that our youths have what it takes to rule the country.

“Since day one, they have shown leadership, accountability and huge sense of responsibility which have sent a clear message to the government.

“Every day at 11:50 pm, they displayed their financial update, and to me, I’m highly amazed with their sense of accountability.

“As a youth leader myself, I am proud that we all have communicated our ideas and it is heartwarming that we have been heard.

“Dear youths, it is time to retreat so as to prevent those with ulterior motives from hijacking the peaceful message of peace.
