Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, has apologized to Nigerians and also admitted that the Federal Government was wrong for not moving faster in addressing the demands of people calling for a total ban of the Police Force, Special Anti-Robbery Squad, (SARS).

Osinbajo, took to his official Twitter account on Friday night, to state that he knows many Nigerians are angry, and that their anger was justified.

According to him, he understands how many young people in the country feel, noting that citizens feel the government has been too silent and has simply not done enough, adding that the feelings of frustration are justified.

“Dear Nigerians, I know that many of you are angry, and understandably so. We could’ve moved faster and for this we are sorry.

“I fully understand how many young people feel. Many feel that we have been too silent and have simply not done enough.

These feelings of frustration are justified.

“There are far too many people who have been brutalised at the hands of the police and this is unacceptable. We must take responsibility for protecting young people, even sometimes from those who are paid to protect them.

“Over the past week, we have been following the protests, and I have had a number of discussions with key people in the administration that you deserve to be informed about. Transparency, after all, is a key tenet of government.” his tweets read in part.
