She slammed Nigerian leaders for being responsible for the stagnancy of the country and the retrogression of its democrary.

The tweet read: “In the context of where we are coming from on the important matter of citizens’ active participation in our democrary, I totally consider their self-organizing that is unfolding before us as brilliant an outcome as an actual win. Effort in this case is worthy of celebration.

“I am beyond excited to see many kids citizens arise to take absolute responsibility of their democrary. As it should be. Only the citizens have the absolute incentive for a broken country. Never those who gladly preside over the rot and their fans who chant all is well.”
