Asaba Youths rejected “refreshment money” of about N1.5M offered them by the Delta State Government Aides. Proud of this generation! That said, God will punish anyone who goes behind to collect money on behalf of protesters. #EndSWAT

She could have given excuses and we would have totally understood but she didn’t. She came out to join the Akwa Ibom protest. Nigerian youths are not lazy. Nigerian youths are brave and strong. God bless Nigerian youths. #EndSWAT pic.twitter.com/Y0oX4h15iI
