Are you tired?

How are you doing today? I can’t exactly say how I’m feeling but I’m okay, I guess. This week is going to be awesome. Can I get an Amen?

So, it’s been well over a week since the #EndSARS protests started in Nigeria. A lot of people would have thought that we’d be tired by now. After all, we’re the ”lazy Nigerian youths”. We’re the ”phone pressing” generation, the unserious ones. But look at what we’ve done in a week! Look at what we’ve done!! Our voices are being heard by the world and by the Grace of God, Police brutality and every other nonsense that comes with it will end in this country.

I asked if you’re tired. Are you? Please don’t be.

Think about the people we are fighting for, the people that died at the hands of brutal policemen, and the peaceful protesters that have also lost their lives. Let us ensure that their deaths are not in vain.

Think about the country we want to live in. The country that we’ve been dreaming about for as long as we can remember, a better Nigeria, where we don’t have to live in fear, where our leaders will be held accountable to the people and will not get away with crimes just because they’re in positions of power. A better Nigeria where the educational and health sectors are up to standard, a country where we are free to express ourselves and exercise our rights without fear of intimidation. Let us try to build a Nigeria that we will be proud of.

Think about the generations coming after us. We don’t want them to suffer like we have, or accept what shouldn’t be as normal. We should do this for a better future. I believe that if we keep pushing, we will be proud of ourselves and this country.

The truth of this whole issue is that it has been a long time coming. I’m glad that the youths are finally waking up and we are finally taking our future into our hands.

However, please don’t lose focus. I like using Donald’s status updates because he expresses his anger well.

Look at these:

You get the gist yeah?

Even though we’re still pushing, please be safe. I saw this online, just in case you or someone else needs it.

I sincerely hope that we don’t forget what we’re fighting for.

Love,

’Ruona. ❤️

  1. Tired??? Ofcorse not. My only concern is that Nigerians don’t lose focus on the ongoing protest. As long as we stay united and push towards our goal. I strongly believe that success is ours.

  2. I’ve been protesting online. Wanted to join one here in Ogun state, but it’s an outright funfair🙄…besides, the thing is getting real bloody.
    God help Nigeria, we will get our dream country and even if we don’t see it immediately, we will still fight for our children.
