Speaking at the inauguration of his second term campaign by the All Progressives Congress in the West Senatorial District of the State on Friday on Iwo, he said the protesters ought to have drawn their plans to allow for negotiation at different stages of the protest.
Oyetola, who was represented by his Deputy, Gboyega Alabi said quality leadership and coordination could have saved the protest from hoodlums, who turned it into violence and an avenue for looting and vandalisation of public and private property.
“Concerning the recent #EndSARS protest that just took place, the only thing I can say as advice is that a protest without a leader is liable to be hijacked. Normally, they are supposed to come up with a negotiation with the⊥ government. I’ll advise them that next time they want to embark on a protest or rally, there should be leaders that will help them channel their negotiations on the negotiation table. They need good leadership for their commitments.” he said.
