#EndSARS Protest: Buhari Govt Not Ready to Respect Nigerians’ Rights – Femi Falana

Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), has claimed there are no signs that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration is ready to respect the rights of Nigerians.

Speaking on Channels Television on Wednesday night, Falana also criticized the federal government for setting up the Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) Team, to replace the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Unit (SARS).

“As far as I’m concerned, so far, we are only scratching the surface of the problem.

“And there’s been no indication that the government is prepared yet to respect the rights of the Nigerian people embodied in the constitution and other statues.

“For me, it is not actually the name that matters and I think what the youths are saying is that beyond renaming, they want to see concrete steps taken to show that it is not going to be business as usual when it comes to policing in Nigeria,” Falana said.
