5 Things The #EndSARS Protests Have Made More Important

October 19, 2020

1. Food

If you don’t have groceries at home, I don’t know what to tell you. With everything going on, it might be a little difficult or even near impossible to order food from restaurants. But hey, na who dey alive dey order food.

2. Data

We’ve all seen how social media has played a big role in starting and sustaining the protests. It is basically the hub of information on anything remotely connected to the movement. Now is really not a good time to run out of data. How would you stay in the loop or aggressively retweet every #EndSARS post you find if you’re out of data?

3. Alternative power sources 

More than ever, phones have become every Nigerian biggest companion, and they need to be on at all times. Since the Nigerian government still can’t promise you 24 hours power supply, Generators and power banks have become increasingly important since the beginning of this movement.

4. Bluetooth Speakers/Good Headphones 

We need to keep the morale up. 

5. A good night sleep

The way I see it, every Nigerian wake up with one goal these days — to end SARS. This takes a ton of mental and physical energy, even if you’re not out on the streets protesting. Don’t forget to get all the sleep you need to keep your energy up every day. Also, it’s all right to take a break.
