Sunday Dare has disclosed the reasons why President Buhari did not address the Lekki Massacre, attributing it to an investigation ongoing.
The Minister of Youths and Sports made this revelation whilst he was in an interview with Arise TV.
According to him, the President of Nigeria has ordered a holistic investigation of the Lekki Toll Gate shooting that happened on October 20, 2020, to be able to acquire real facts before he addresses it to the Nation.
Hence, he would make available the decisions are taken for justice and peace to prevail when the results from the investigation are ready.
“For sure, the president has ordered an investigation. He had a national security meeting yesterday. I can tell you that this is already ongoing because the president wants to have all the facts which will absolutely be made public.
“It is important to get all the facts right before we go forward, in this case. It’s going to be difficult to hide these facts because we live in a multimedia world and we have pieces of evidence and corroboration and I think it is important to get the facts right.
“I think that’s the part the president has towed and I am sure that when the facts are made available, this president – because he has integrity – will level with the Nigerian people about what happened on Tuesday in Lekki.
“Previously, we just had lip service that SARS scrapped. For the first time, you have a presidential pronouncement that SARS has been dissolved followed by the inspector-general and then we saw quick steps thereafter.
“And I think when you look at what has happened in the past and the level of responsiveness and concrete steps, the whole five demands of the youth were wholeheartedly accepted by the president and he set up a process.”
