EndSARS protests against police brutality were part of a broader campaign to remove President Muhammadu Buhari.
Arise TV broadcast Buhari’s remarks Thursday morning.
According to the president, Nigeria has become unattractive to investors because of those who took part in the protest.
Furthermore, he blamed the protests on a decline in foreign direct investment in the country.
The president was asked how Nigeria can attract more foreign direct investment.
He responded as follows:
“This question was answered last year when there was the #EndSARS protest. You remember the young people that wanted to march here and remove me?”
Additionally, he said:
“Tell the young people to behave themselves and make the country safe; then we can attract real investors to the country”.
