Sam Adeyemi, the Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, has urged Nigerian youths to continue to insist on the government’s implementation of the 5for5 demands.
Following the EndSARS protests, youths had presented the five demands to the Federal Government.
However, Adeyemi urged the youths to use the opportunity they currently have to push for reforms that would make Nigeria a better place.
The clergyman, in a series of tweets, called on Nigerian youths to carry themselves along in pushing for a better country.
According to Adeyemi: “You need a strong ideology to lay the foundation for a new nation. Nations are built on ideologies. Decide on a few short, medium and long term objectives. Example; short term (#ENDSARS), medium term (influence political process), long term (make Nigeria a developed economy).
“Carry as many people as possible along by communicating your vision for building a developed economy. This is real work. Morph the protest into town hall meetings. Be innovative with your messaging, using local languages. A large chunk of citizens are barely educated.
“Please sell the vision of a developed Nigeria to your brothers and sisters in all regions (north, south, east, west, etc.), and in all sectors including the civil service, business, military, and those labeled hoodlums, considering each group’s peculiar challenges.
“For the deprived, connect by meeting their basic needs. Stories work best in communication. If in the diaspora, describe how things work in all sectors where you live (owning a house, obtaining drivers license, running a business, education, infrastructure, leadership, etc).
