Speaking on the recently held EndSARS protest in the country by Nigerian youths which was later hijacked by so-called hoodlums, the Prelate called on the government both at the federal and state levels to listen to the genuine complaint made by the youths and fashion out ways to solve them in order to have a more peaceful Nigeria.
