Outspoken media personality, Charlyboy, popularly known as AreaFada, has waded into the much publicized nationwide protest by popular Nigerian music star, Tuface Idibia.
The activist, who declared his support for the music icon, said until frustrated Nigerians begin to stand up and fight for good governance at all levels, ‘we go soon chop sand-sand.’
Recall that the music legend had announced that on February 5, he would be leading a protest in ‘a call for good governance’.
The presidency, among others, had lambasted Tuface, saying he is still in shock over the outcome of the last election.
In an open letter, AreaFada wrote: “I no just understand my people sometimes. Some people go sidon dey look Uche face, dey dulling and the few wey wan do something weather our condition go fit better, na so we go dey yab dem, dey stone dem. I just tire when I read some useless tweets and updates about Tuface.
“As a Fada, e no go nice if I just sidon make some guys dey fuckup, dey miss yarn because dem Mumu never Do.
“Have we not suffered Enough?
“Are we not Hungry Enough?
“Has Corruption not crippled our People enough?
“Has Political Criminality not damaged our Morality enough?
“Wetin remain again, no be to enter street?
“If some can’t see the sense in the march Tuface is organizing why must they insist on exposing their ignorance on our social highway. If him like make e get 7 kids with 3 babymamas, what has that got to do with the price of garri in the market?
“Has TuFace not been actively involved in the demand for good governance before now? So why is it that he has ulterior motives now?
“Until we fraustrated Nigerians begin to stand up and fight for good governance at all Level, we go soon chop sand sand.
“I am from Oguta in Imo State; I am doing my little bit in empowering the youths, Mothers, Market Women and Disadvantaged people who have no access to a simple normal life.
“I am also using the Njiko Carnival under The Justice Oputa Foundation to promote not just the historical heritage of the Oguta people, but also the Magnificent Oguta Blue Lake and environs as a tourism hub in Nigeria, most times with my money.
“Yet, some people go dey cause me, some just dey like read meanings into my action like say dem dey my mind. But una know say I no send anybody.
“We could never have sank this low if it wasn’t for our inactions, our docility and our Mumuness.
“I support mass mobilization, mass movement, citizen advocacy, the fight, struggle for a better country and the drive to Emancipate the mind of Nigerians. I believe that is what my guy Tuface Idibia wants too. So we must all commot.
“A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.
“We are stronger when many speak together as one voice.
“We are stronger when we think in the same direction.
“We are stronger when we project our common values.
“We are stronger when we are oblivious of tribe/religion in our decision making.
“Anyhow, anywhere any day I go show, because Na our future we they fight for. Since last year me and some exceptional nigerian youths are also putting together The Mother of all rally’s to be held in Abuja. We must see the end of this nonsense.
“Pikin wey say him mama no go rest, him too no go sleep. We they come, them go know how far. Am calling on all celebrities wey get mouth to speak out and fall out. Everybody wey dey frustrated with this country must show, enough is enough.
“I believe that the biggest threat to governance in Nigeria are the criminal Governors; their stooges at the local government level. The Nigerian National Assembly that is forever breaking Laws instead of making them and the Judiciary where Justice is now for the Highest Bidder. Una go hearam.
“The many agencies under the Executive like the CBN; NNPC; RMAFC; Finance and others need to be pressured to introduce accountability into governance. So we all must begin to face those Governor who have Collected Several Bailouts from the Federal Government and Looted them; Those Governors who are taking Security Votes and Looting them.
“Those Governors who go to the Ministry of Finance Monthly to Collect FAAC Allocations and Loot them; Those Governors who are Refusing to Pay Salaries but have no Problem Chartering Private Jets worth Tens of Millions of Naira.
“We must stop hailing the Corrupt and destroyers of our Dreams; We must Expose and ridicule them. We must be audacious in our Demands; we must be Fearless in our Agitation and we must be ready to sacrifice for this Country.
“Nothing will happen unless we change this our Mumu mindset that has rendered us hopeless.
“The divisive politics that we play, is our Enemy; The Nigerian People are the Victim and it is time to channel our anger towards a Peaceful Revolution. We must stop being the victims and become THE FEAR.
“If our yeye Leaders no fear us, change no go come.
“Very soon they will no longer be able to enjoy all that stolen money in this country again.
“God punish bad people.
