Activist Life Matter: Why I stopped fighting for Nigeria – Chioma Ifemeludike speaks
Nollywood actress, Chioma Ifemeludike has bemoaned the major reasons she stopped being an activist on a mission to save her dear country, Nigeria.
The script interpreter who is quite outspoken, especially on social media penned her experience on her Instagram page.
She wrote: “I used to go outta my way to play big mother Nigeria, thinking I could help in my little capacity to change the status quo. I once left my job, career and entire life to go do activism at abuja with #ourmumudondo ( chai I don suffer for this life sha). I put everything about me on hold just because I wanted to see a better Nigeria.. I started loosing it, it’s was so inconveniencing leaving my comfortable home at lekki to go attach with a friend at kado, abj… I did all these because of my passion to contribute my quota to nation building but at some point a friend said to me “chi you need to empower yourself first before you help others, besides they people you’re fighting for are not ready!!! Nna eeh sense entered me.”
Chioma Ifemeludike continued, “…The truth is, you can’t pour from an empty cup, you need to build yourself spiritually, physically,financially emotionally and psychologically before you can effectively impact positively in any cause or struggle… I’m on my journey to self actualization and capacity building, I will join the struggle again when Nigerians are ready, for now let’s all watch bigbrother Nigeria, contribute money for mediocrity while our future disappears right in our very before… someone will surely suffer the consequences of negligence, docility and irresponsibility. #ACTIVISTSLIVESMATER.”
