The real tsunami is coming, and no doubt I will be on the front line. I will take the first bullet; let my body be the first to drop; Let my blood be the first to wash our lands.”
Charly boy stated, “the TuFace Cancelled Protest. The struggle to overcome political insanity, audacious impunity and mindless looting in Nigeria took a negative hit last night not just because Tuface Idibia called off the February 6, 2017 protest; because most of the demons we are fighting against hijack the peoples protest and anger at the establishment.
We must not trivialize the struggle because it is the emancipation of the Nigerian mind. President Muhammadu Buhari is not the problem of the Nigerian State and this is not excusing his failures. The Nigeria political elite are vampires feeding on the blood of a willing and docile populace.
Will the Nigerian youth back a full blooded peaceful political mass revolution at the federal, State and Local Government Level? I doubt. But, I no go give up on my children, The coalition of the frustrated, angry and hungry, as well as this country that I love. We must sustain the pressure and cannot turn back as the revolution continues.
We must begin to resist political insensitivity and mindless looting of our common wealth. We must sustain the pressure and cannot turn back as the revolution continues. We must begin to resist political insensitivity and mindless looting of our common wealth.
I, Area Fada will fight so fear will no longer cripple my people.”
Seyilaw in his post on Instagram, said, “I am giving Nigerians the assurance that I will be at the stadium tomorrow. We have a right to protest. I absolutely understand @official2baba, but I am not backing out. In a further post, the comedian expressed his frustrations with the turn of event, saying “how our greatest weapons have been used against us.”
In his words: “my pain in the face of our challenges is how our greatest weapons have been used against us. God is supposed to be our greatest tool of deliverance and projection into our unknown future. The government ought to help us organize our collective ideas and smoothen our path to freedom and development. Gun, a potent tool of protection and reassurance of territorial power. The cord that ties these three power tools together is human and the knife that cuts them is politics.
“The hunger for the government has caused some men to politicise god, creating chaos through religion and oppressing us with guns. It was supposed to be a protest highlighting and stating our desire for good governance, but again politics has to be played and with their tools of government and gun,
we have been muted. Let them rejoice in the power they hold, but please remind them that death will someday knock on the door.
“The grave will hold them down and their children will behold the strength in our unity. Silence us today and your children will be silent tomorrow while we speak. I believe in this nation and the emancipation of all. I won’t stop speaking and I know the tides of time will change and usher in a new dawn,” he wrote.
