The proposed February 5 nationwide protest against the federal government’s abject performance as announced by singer, 2face Idibia and supported by many celebrities is an effort in futility according to Nollywood actress, Funke Adesiyan.
The actress said that it was better for the likes of 2face and the others who are championing the protests to go into politics and change things from within adding that their protests would make no impact as the leaders would turn deaf ears to their cries.
She wrote, “When people ask me why I joined politics, I tell them from the truest of my heart that it is because I got tired of how things were being done in my country. It’s not enough for us to protest, it’s more important for us, youths of this beloved nation to get involved in governance. You could try many times before achieve it. Even if you fail all the time, you are a champion amongst those who didn’t try at all. Lets look around us, we will realize that we the youths are the driving force of our nation. We are smart, intelligent, agile and we possess many more special qualities. Let’s not waste it protesting to a deaf horse. I hereby advice we the youths of this nation, the most important part of nation building to rise and OCCUPY governance. Contest for public offices and be the change you so desire. God bless us all and God bless Nigeria. Funke Adesiyan.”
The protests is billed to hold on Sunday, February 5, 2017 across the country.
