Popular activist, Rinu Oduala, has been honoured by the United Nations.
The 22-year-old’s picture covered the home page of the world’s universal global organisation, an intergovernmental that aims to maintain international peace and security, dignity, equality on a healthy planet and develop friendly relations among nations.
Rinu shared the news on social media and noted that its really heartwarming, especially coming at a time when Nigerian youths are at their lowest, struggling to make their voices heard and respected.
She wrote: “I woke up being a face on @UN for peace, dignity and equality on a healthy planet.
At a time when Nigerian youths are at their lowest, struggling to make their voices heard & respected, this is really warming.” She wrote.
Recall that Rinu participated in the #EndSARS protest against police brutality in Nigeria and was selected as one of the representatives in the Judicial Panel of Inquiry and Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses & Lekki Toll Gate shooting that took place on the 20th of October 2020.
She later pulled out of the panel, saying it is obvious that the government is only out to use youth representatives for performative actions.
