Why I supported recent protest, by Nengi Adoki

By Adeniyi Adewoyin



 

Nollywood actress, Nengi Adoki has revealed that she has been aggressively promoting #EndSARS because of what the moment stands for.



During an interview with Eelive.ng, Adoki noted that #EndSARS doesn’t only mean ending police brutality, but also encourages national unity and nation-building.

“I am hoping that a lot of people feel as strongly as I am. In Nigeria, there’s already a lot that makes survival hard for people, especially young people. And when we are saying hey! stop killing us, we just really want to stop being killed. There’s a lot more Nigeria citizens can ask for,  they could ask for water, electricity, healthcare, education, and for me, putting an end to police brutality is at least removing one of those  agents that are obstacles in the part of young people looking to do better and be better as Nigerians in Nigeria,” she was quoted as saying.

Continuing, Adoki added: “I am passionate about #EndSARS because it means freedom of expression, it means peace, and it means unity. If we can successfully stop police brutality, then that means we can also successfully create better education, better healthcare, a better system that will enable young people to thrive.

Everywhere I have been in the world, Nigerians are brilliant, they outperform and a lot of times, are doing way better than a lot of their contemporaries. I don’t mean this in a spiteful way, it’s a fact and for me to come to Nigeria and live here and see  that the same is not being replicated, not because the people don’t want to feel that way but because government has not created a supporting environment or thriving environment where a Nigeria citizen can really and truly be the best that they can, is heartbreaking. In my case where you get to see that, would you not be as passionate as I am?

“That sums it up. I could go on talking about why this is important to me but another thing I would like to add is that there’s no reason why anyone should lose their lives to police brutality. Absolutely, no reason, there’s a lot already in the word that’s killing people, we don’t need to kill ourselves. I am extremely proud and inspired by all of the young women who step forward demanding for better.”

Acknowledging the role women play in the advocacy of fairness and security, the actress explained: “I don’t even think this needs to be a woman century discussion; as the women, every single person should be out there fighting. I have nothing but love, respect, admiration for women, and I am inspired by our collective roles.”
