Ghana’s Member of Parliament for Kumbungu Ras Mubarak has urged the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to intervein in the current situation in Nigeria, especially the shooting of innocent protesters.

According to him, “perish the thought, if Nigeria goes down now it would affect the whole sub-region; Ghana, Benin, Togo and other sub-regional countries. West Africa and Africa must contribute in solving the situation rather than seeing it as challenges of Nigerians alone”.

In an interview with members of the Ghanaian Parliamentary Press Corps on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 the Kumbungu lawmaker noted that, the Nigerian Government on their part should take steps to address the concerns of the youth who are protesting to ensure peace.

He further cautioned the protesters to be watchful of persons who might want to capitalize on the situation for all manner of reasons. He was optimistic of the situation being resolved in other not to attract wicked people or groups, who do not wish Nigerian well in the current situation.

“If it would have to take a Governor or the Inspector General of Police to resign for peace to prevail in Nigeria, why not? It is important that the peace is safe guarded. We saw what happened in Libya where their spontaneous anger and protest led to so many things; today it is a failed state”.
