Feminist Coalition ends fundraising for #EndSARS

  • wants protesters to observe curfew

One of the groups that championed the #EndSARS protests, The Feminist Coalition, has announced that they would no longer be accepting donations towards the movement
It could be recalled that its tweet on Thursday called upon Nigerian youth to heed President Buhari’s address and “stay safe, stay home, and observe the mandated curfew in your state”.

According to an issued statement they released, “The coalition has managed to raise nearly N148 million since it began its fundraising campaign around a fortnight ago, despite reportedly having their bank account frozen at the demand of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) – instead switching to taking donations in crypto-currency bitcoin”.

Originally formed in July of this year to “champion equality for women in Nigerian society with a core focus on education, financial freedom and representation in public office” the coalition chose the EndSARS protest as its “first project” in the fight against “injustice”.
The team of 14 women have stated on its website that it wanted to assist Nigerians in “exercising their constitutional rights” to protest, by fundraising for the cause.
