The Patriotic Elders Council (PEC) have thrown their weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari, noting that the country comes first before other interests.
The group’s backing, contained in a statement signed by Alhaji Ari Gwaska, follows public reactions that trailed the EndSARS protests across the country.
Recall that some governors had expressed maximum support for President Buhari amidst pressure from Nigerians and the international community.
The Northern States Governors’ Forum called on all Nigerians to resist what they described as enemies of the nation by supporting the president
And according to PEC, the arson, crime and violent dimension that accompanied the mass action is “condemnable, absurd and unacceptable to every sane and sensible Nigerian”.
The group said, ” there is no need to set the country on fire because the interests of a few elites are endangered or in jeopardy”.
The PEC further said elder statesmen such as former President Olusegun Obasanjo cheering the youths towards the path of destruction will face judgement someday.
The patriotic elders noted that youths are the emblem of the strength of any country and a symbol of its heritage.
The group, however, urged them to maintain total loyalty to Nigeria; protect and defend their only country as it is their only worthy asset.
