Former Nigerian Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba has advised youths to use their strength and population to engage government constructively instead of continuous protest and revolution that are capable of destroying the country.
Ndoma-Egba said this when he visited his property in Calabar, the Cross River State capital that was destroyed by hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protests in October 2020.
He explained that the #OccupyLekkiTollGate protesters can redirect their strength to penetrate the government of the country through party politics which is legitimate.
The former federal lawmaker expressed worries that any legitimate protest again by the youths will still be hijacked by hoodlums and the aim would have been defeated.

He said the losses incurred as a result of properties destroyed in October are unquantifiable both tangible and intangible assets inherited from his late father, Justice Ndoma-Egba.
Ndoma-Egba’s house in Calabar was set ablaze by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protests in October and the former lawmaker was visiting the house for the first time after the incident.
