Further wishing that generation before had fought for this current generation, Yesufu pledged to fight for a better Nigeria for unborn generations. 

"Nigeria is worth fighting for. I will never give up on Nigeria no matter what it throws at me. I owe it to the unborn generation on their way to Nigeria just like I wished others had fought for me before I came to Nigeria," she wrote.

In the documentary published by BBC, Yesufu pointed out that death was not when one no longer breathe in oxygen and breath out carbon dioxide but when one is afraid to speak the truth because he or she is scared of death.

The activist became a topic of discussion in the media after she took to the street to join the #ENDSARS protest in her hijab, an act most religious fanatics believed was against the tenets of Islam.

It would be recalled that Yesufu on Wednesday made the news after getting listed by BBC as one of the 100 most influential women in the world alongside  Sanna Marin, who leads Finland’s all-female coalition government, Michelle Yeoh, star of the new Avatar and Marvel films, and Sarah Gilbert, who heads the Oxford University research into a Coronavirus vaccine, as well as Jane Fonda, a climate activist, and actress.
