She took to her Instagram page today, May 19, 2016 to share a photo of the lady who broke the social media for stepping out with a cardboard paper to cry out for a job, and aired her thoughts on the current unemployment situation in Nigeria, saying this is not the time to manage but the time to speak up.

She wrote, "1st May was "Workers Day" I'm wondering the people who stayed back at home to celebrate this so called Workers day when the youths are already at home anyways. This is not the time to act like everything is alright, this is not the time to pretend I'm not affected, this is not the time to manage, it is the time to speak up. I, Yvonne Jegede is sick of this, I am personally speaking for myself and people who are affected. Unemployment leads to criminal activities, when people are hungry, they are angry.

We shouldn't wait till someone is stabbed at the bus stop, on their way to their daily hustle by someone who is hungry and needs 1000 naira by all means.

We don't have to wait to see it on lindaikeji before we know this has come to a point to speak up because that person/victim could be anybody. It could be someone YOU/I know personally. People are hungry and people are angry. Yes I am angry. We are not lazy, give us an environment suitable and we will be fine. God bless     #DontPrayForNigeriaPrayForThePeopleOfNigeria #WeAreTired #ISpeakForMyPeople #SpeakNow."

The actress recently aired her thoughts on the depression and suicide.
