Ghana’s president addresses Nigerians as Buhari fails to discuss Lekki shooting at FEC

Nigerians have gone online to ask "where is President Buhari?"

The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, who is the current President of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has condemned the alleged killing of protesters in Lekki, Lagos.

Meanwhile, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari met with his cabinet at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) today but never discussed the reported killing which is being blamed on the Nigerian Army.

“I join all well-meaning persons in calling for calm, and the use of dialogue in resolving the EndSARS impasse in Nigeria,” Akufo-Addo said in a brief statement on Wednesday.

“I have spoken with President Buhari, who is committed to this end, and has begun the processes that will lead to reform.

“Violence, be it on the part of the police or protesters, cannot be the solution.

“To the families who have lost their loved ones, I express my sincere condolences, and I wish the injured a speedy recovery.”

Nigerians, under the platform of EndSARS are calling for an end to police brutality and for comprehensive law enforcement reforms.
