Group Decries Effects Of Protests On Nigeria

The Civil Society Organisations Strategy Group on Sustainable Development Goals in Nigeria (CSOSG-SDGs-Nigeria) said that the #EndSARS protests will take back the country in realising the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The National Chairman of the group, Dr Uzodinma Adirieje, said this in Abuja on Saturday.

Adirieje said that the vandalism of property and lives was a violation of SDG 11, aimed at sustainable cities and communities.

He explained that the destruction in the cities and communities had triggered tension and fear among residents, thereby defeating Goal 11.

He added that “on all fronts, the approach used has dragged Nigeria back in all the 17 goals.

“Destruction of properties, killings and jailbreak to free inmates has dragged Nigeria back.
