Pst Poju, the moderator of the popular programme, The Platform, an annual conference organized by the church to commemorate Nigeria’s independence on every October 1, said the “streets has its limit”.

The cleric wrote on his Twitter handle, @pastorpoju, on Monday, “Why did President (Barack) Obama go into politics, seeking to be in office? He realized as a community organizer he was limited to what changes he could effect without political power.

He said: “The streets has its limit. To effect meaningful change peacefully organise for political power.”

The #EndSARS protests rocking the country have continued for almost two weeks with youths calling for a lasting reform of the Nigeria Police Force.

Major highways have been blocked by the youths, thereby, causing gridlock and affecting economic activities.

Suspected hoodlums had also hijacked the #EndSARS campaign in some cities, wreaked havoc on citizens and vandalised public assets in Lagos, Benin, Abuja, amongst other major cities.
