Former Nigerian lawmaker, Senaror Shehu Sanni has heaped praises on the youths of the country, saying no one will ever describe them as lazy again.
Sanni stated this in a tweet in solidarity with the ongoing nationwide #ENDSARS protest.
Nobody will dare call the Nigerian youths lazy again #EndSARS

However, the tweet which ended with the trending #EndSARS hash tag did not save the former lawmaker from the claws of the angry Nigerian youths, as they reminded Sanni that he was part of the system.
Some went as far as displaying photos of Sani giving out radio transistors as constituency projects while in office.

Another Twitter user withdraw his support from Shehu Sanni for supporting the #ENDSARS movement despite being a northerner.
For the first time sir @ShehuSani I'm not there in your back any other thing, we're northerners even you're supporting the opposite side! But you have to remember that you have so many supporters in the north, even once you have to support them. And assist there struggle

The protests have been ongoing for the best part of a week and there appears to be no slowing down on the part of the youths.
