The National Consultative Front, NCFront, has declared its unalloyed support to the ongoing protests by Nigerian youths across the country tagged #EndSARS.
The leadership of the political group which prides itself as an emerging alternative to Nigeria's ruling class, has also commended its youth network and allies across the country for the strategic roles so far played in sustaining the protests rocking the nation.
In a press statement issued on Thursday, signed by its spokesperson, Dr Tanko Yunusa and made available to News Express, the Front also decried the panicky hiring and criminal attacks on peaceful protesters by hoodlums with the aim of undermining the peaceful and orderly protest of the large section of responsible and resourceful Nigerian youths.
The statement reads in part:
"NCFront wishes to applaud the ideological dimension brought into the ongoing #EndSARS struggle by its teeming youth members and allies in depicting SARS as symbolic of every negative, irresponsible, anti people's element of government misrule and state collapse in Nigeria.
"We, therefore wish to state in clear terms that, this emergent ideological dynamics, as embraced by the the Coalition of Northern Youths today in Kaduna, is the most formidable line to tow towards achieving a Nigeria that works for all under a government that has been deaf and irresponsive to all entrities of popular demand for democratic change in mal-adminstration of the country.
"NCFront hereby enjoins and directs all its teeming youths members and allies, especially in the Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM), Citizens Advocacy Network, Revolution 2023, and the entire Third Force, Fresh breed Movement of Nigeria not to be deterred by casualties, injuries and loss of lives recorded while pursuing this noble cause but to ensure everything is done in solidarity to sustain the current revolutionary momentum until all forms of SARS are brought down as the present political class have been a monumental failure and disappointment.
"They must be brought to their knees to account for the blood of innocent and defenceless youths maimed and cut down by state forces during the ongoing peaceful protests.
"All past and present politicians, especially political office holders, who have contributed in one way or the other to bring the country to the current 'SARS' brutal situation in all spheres of its existence, must immediately be declared persona non granta and made to account for their destructive contributions to making Nigeria a failed state, a criminal enterprise and the poverty capital of the world."
NCFront further said it has already convened an emergency stakeholders’ meeting for 8pm today to rewiew the gains and losses and the tactical way forward for the emerging popular revolution in Nigeria.
It called on all its leaders, stakeholders, members and allies to attend this all important review meeting.
