Nollywood actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, has said that he is prouder than ever to be a Nigerian.

The actor said this as he celebrated his 58th birthday on Saturday with an Instagram post.

He said that his proud was due to the ongoing protests against sexual abuse and physical abuse.

“The thing about getting older is that with each passing day you know yourself better, find your voice more and generally become better aware. It’s been 58, years of stumbles, falls, wrong turns, dreadful mistakes and errors but in all, they have been 58, remarkable years of God’s consistent grace and mercies.

“If after all these years I am afraid to speak the truth irrespective of whose ox is gored, then I have failed, which is why I have never been prouder of being Nigerian than I am now because Nigerians have given me the best birthday week, ever. It’s been a harvest of protests that have brought positive results. It indeed gives me hope that even though a lot of young people in this generation are misinformed, misguided and scaringly shallow,” he wrote in parts.

It indeed gives me hope that even though a lot of young people in this generation are misinformed, misguided and scaringly shallow, a lot more have their heads in the right places and I am optimistic that it can only get better, so as I reflect on my years, I pray that Proverbs chapter 31, verses 8 and 9 will guide the remaining years of my life, Amen! #RMDSaysSo #RMD@58 #GratefulHeart #HappyMan #FulfilledLife styling by @mudiafrica
