“Make smart choices” – Tonto Dikeh offers alternatives to youths’ protest plans

"Make smart choices" - Tonto Dikeh offers alternatives to youths' protest plans

Actress Tonto Dikeh has shared her perspective on the planned Nigerian youth protest scheduled from August 1 to 10.

While she fully acknowledges the right to protest and empathizes with the struggles stemming from the difficult economy, she believes there might be more effective ways to address the issues at hand.

Dikeh expressed her sadness over the rising cost of living, which makes it hard for citizens to manage their expenses despite working hard.

She recalled how the #EndSARS protest against police brutality in 2020 was ultimately derailed by those who caused damage, and suggested that a more constructive approach might be to form a representative group to engage directly with President Bola Tinubu.

She wrote, “Dear fellow Nigerian youths, I understand your frustrations about our nation’s current state. The price hikes and economic pressures are tough, and many are struggling with increased costs of commuting and living. However, a nationwide protest from August 1-10, 2024, might not be the most effective method right now. This isn’t to undermine the power of protests but to suggest a more strategic approach.

“Instead of protests, I recommend forming a representative group to formally communicate with the President. This group can advocate on our behalf, request a meeting to discuss our concerns, and propose solutions. Engaging in meaningful dialogue and community development can lead to positive change and unity.

“The economic challenges affect us all, and addressing them through peaceful and diplomatic means could be more beneficial. Let’s unite and work towards a better Nigeria. I urge you to consider alternative ways to make your voices heard and to work towards a brighter future.”

She concluded with the caption: “Sometimes we can be right, but how we express ourselves matters. This is a heartfelt plea to all Nigerian youths—LET’S MAKE SMART CHOICES.”
