The Founder and Senior Pastor of Daystar Christian Centre, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, has commemorated with youths on the first anniversary of the alleged shooting of protesters at Lekki Toll Gate, which occurred during October 2020 #EndSARS protests.
He urged the Nigerian youth to keep pressing forward in their fight for a better future for the country and continent at lager, he made this known on his Instagram page.
He wrote: “Dear young Nigerian, we adults will not hold the stage forever, you own the future. Keep moving to fulfill the dream of a Nigeria and Africa that empower all without discrimination, creating political, economic, and cultural development. Your efforts will not be in vain, ”
“Those of us in the older generation need to think ahead about our legacy,” he said. “Africans have suffered a lot through history. We have a duty to rise above prejudice and selfishness, to create an environment where potential can flourish, and where leadership is accountable and poised for service.”
Pastor Sam was sued in November 2020 as he was one of the notable voice in support of the #EndSARS protest.
The suit was however halted by an order of a High Court in the Federal Capital Territory in January.
