Nollywood actress, Genevieve Nnaji, has enjoined the Feminist Coalition not to stop receiving donations supporting the #EndSARS protesters.
Recall that the group, which has been providing administrative support and fundraising for the group had said it would no longer accept donations for the campaign, which seeks an end to police brutality and the disbandment of the police’s tactical special units – SARS and SWAT. Their decision followed President Buhari’s Thursday night’s national broadcast which asked protesters to get off the streets as violence and anarchy reigned.
However, in her reaction to the development, Genevieve disclosed that it is important that the donation continues so that it could meet with the financial demands of some of the protesters.
She also lamented that citizens can no longer depend on the government for survival as she applauded the group for its bravery in the heat of the #EndSARS campaign.
“God bless you for all your hardwork ladies. But please don’t stop. I’m tired of people dying because they can’t pay before service at hospitals,” she wrote on Twitter.
“Bail money will be crucial now more than ever. I want to keep donating for it is clear our lives and well-being are in our own hands.”
The coalition disclosed on Friday that it received N147, 855, 788 donations and spent N60, 403,235 over the past 14 days while the protests lasted.
