According to Bello Shagari, the grandson of late former President Shehu Shagari, youths taking part in the #EndSARS protest are doing it to show off.

Bello in his Facebook post claimed that a lot of young people identify with the protest even though they have little understanding of the socio-political system.

According to him, young people should not focus so much on protests when they can mobilize others to "achieve a change in the entire political system, or to change our present realities, or at least to be in charge of them."

He Wrote;

“A lot of the young people who identify with the#EndSARS protest are doing so because it has become fashionable. It has become a thing of show off; that everyone is now an activist. Whereas most of them have little understanding of the socio-political system.

“However, my advise has always been that we should not focus too much in protests when we can do better by mobilising young peoples’ votes to achieve a change in the entire political system, or to change our present realities, or at least to be in charge of them.

“We must adopt a more progressive and strategic approach rather than the usual disruptive one which hasn’t yielded any meaningful results. You can’t be doing the same thing and expect a different result.

“Use the same energy and reinforce it into a political power at the polls.”
