Many Nigerian youths are morally lost, says Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde



Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, a popular Nigerian actress and activist, says a lot of Nigerian youths are morally and physiologically lost.

In a tweet expressing her disappointment at the reception activism has received in the country, she said an activist has to be encouraged by the people.

“I’m afraid I might be losing my fire! I was so on fire here! I still feel the burner bringing the heat … just unsure I haven’t lost the hope in humanity to light it again as much 🙇‍♀️🌪💥 #activistbybirth #frustratedbyunchange,” she quoted a picture of 2010 Enough is Enough protest.

“The youths sometimes are the ones that discourage you, unfortunately. As an activist, besides passion, you have to feel encouraged. Like the people you’re doing it for are behind you.

“Many Nigerian youths are morally and physiologically lost. I’m sorry but this is the reality.”

The 'Enough is Enough' rally on March 16, 2010, was a 'game changer' in the history of activism in #Nigeria & since then we haven't looked back.

We will continue to rally, organise & mobilise young people to demand good governance & public accountability.#EiEat9
