We have a fundamental problem of allowing our religion and ethnicity to cloud the best of our judgement, until we emancipate ourselves from these two factors ,we will continue to make terrible choices in our leadership. These factors is also responsible for why we cannot come under one umbrella for a common course without having a divided opinion...There is no protest that will be organize by someone from any of the region without Nigerians twisting it to take an ethnic/religious coloration in other to derail that very project/struggle .

We are disunited in our thought, how can we now be united to pursue a common course without these evil factors getting in our way?

Now look at Sowore "Revolution now" has been tagged a Yoruba revolution by some Igbos . Then tomorrow an Igbo man will stage a protest and it will be tagged as an" Igbos protest"..this is how it will be.It a hopeless situation my brother, becos majority of our youth are daft and confuse.


Very true... Tribalism is really our doing, when someone people meet you after few questions,
the next words you will hear are "where are you from or what tribe are you" if you say I'm deltan, next question is where in Delta.. if you say Ijaw.. the person might go further to ask which village and quarter?
Even with religion, you still have denominationalism
Shouldn't just being a Nigerian be enough?

Make una pity Yoruba. That's why it is bad making choices out of hate.

The one that pained me most is some Yorubas came online asking, " Why do Igbos hate Buhary " ?

Hate Kwa ? We simply told them Igbos don't hate Buhary.

Igbos don't engage in BAD MARKET as business people.

We spot PROFIT from afar. Nigeria cannot profit under Buhary. They didn't listen.


LoL

tinubu is a politician. He fights his fight. Yoruba leaders that ought to speak for the tribe already done so. Tinubu giant must also be disturbing you in your dream too i guess.
Of cos not..but for the sake of your children please stop gloating over people that do not care about your well-being..they do not care if bandit/head men come over to your land , slit your throat ,rape your wife, maim your children and take possession of very thing while they chase everyone out of the land as long as it will benefit him politically.
Think deep and reflect on why you choose to worship Him?..does he fight for you and ur people when you need him? does he speak and lament on your behalf while you groan under the hardship and insecurity of this government whom he help bring into power? then why fight his battle in the first place? what do you benefit from all this?..this is the reason i call it mental slavery.

Sowore fighting the government is doing so because he lost the election. The Yorubas are crying and protesting because Buhari ended up treating them exactly how they encouraged him to treat others. Everything happening is Karma paying y'all back for una stupidity. In 2015, Sowore was among the people who fostered and pushed for the presidency despite the history of Buhari educated everyone the type of leader he would have been. This has absolutely nothing to do with the future of anybody as they wouldn't have been the pioneer of pushing the idiot into power.

Secondly, I don't give a flying Bleep what happens to Niggeria. My mindset is complete and utter division from Niggeria at least for my people. If the convo isn't about that, I don't give a Bleep if it burns.

It is quite disheartening to know that Nigerian government and her law enforcement agencies are still leaving in the past era of abrogation and breach of fundamental human right. With the video of protesters I saw at Surulere, there was no violence, no disruption of vehicular traffic or people and yet, Nigerian police officers made arrests and tried disperse people not to protest.

The modern policing has gone beyond reactionary but proactiveness. The policemen should have been there to protect and prevent chaos rather than obstructing, dispersing or arresting non violent protesters. Especially the task force, its high time we looked at the recruitment requirements of people who wants to join the force. Many are arrogant, uncivilised and above the law in act. What right does the police officer has kicking the man resisting arrest? When LASG task force arrest drivers for driving against traffic and same law enforcement team drive against traffic for their operation, what is their excuse? I cannot comprehend!

The earlier the police, as an institution, stay clear politics and adhere to modern policing with rule of engagement, the better for the ciuntry because if the government govern right, people will solidly stand by the leader. If otherwise, the people will rise against the government. Just a matter of time!

Let us all do what is right in the interest of Nigeria, the citizens and children unborn!

Ipob protest is actually a tribal protest laced ethnic bigotry, while Sowore protest is a class protest. i.e a rich Vs poor protest.

His agenda has nothing to with the Yoruba nation in particular.

I don't know why ipob members are getting it all confused

So in your deranged mind only Yorubas were protesting, when even the leader of the group is an Ijaw and their lawyer is Calabar? cheesy

Meanwhile, you have just started to wail, I am glad that those that usually give you a listening ear across the nation have actually seen that you are not worth the effort. grin

Sowore will be released in the coming days and he must have learnt his lesson by then .

original omo nna. Writng epistles based on assumptions. Very deluded set of beings. I wrote it earlier that tinubu giant is disturbing you in your dreams. Just admit it. Tinubu is never and can never be a yoruba leader, tinubu is a politician and APC leader. So what concerns a political party with a tribe? Don't worry, i know where all your pains are coming from, it was the same reason azikiwe wrote long epistle on awolowo because he didn't give him the chance to take over lagos and his region just like he(azikiwe) has planned. Tinubu is stopping you folks and not allowing same hence the painment. If you don't carry your wretched soul out of my mentions right now ehn. Infact thunder fia you there omo nna oshi. Worship tinubu ko, worship oju iku the coward ni. Rubbish.

Bruv you are deranged beyond redemption! cheesy

Sowore himself said he is not Yoruba during a campaign rally in the election earlier this year.

I have always maintain that Sowore is not Yoruba, you could go through my comment log if you are that jobless.

The lawyer is a member and also their lawyer. He was invited to speak on behalf of the group yesterday on TVc he confirmed that.

You are just a slow bigot with no sense of purpose apart from your usual biggoted induced wailing grin

Who cares WTF you believe. As I showed, earlier your people were all over NL calling Sowore as Yoruba to chest beat. The second the revolution flopped, all we've seen is your people, being the chameleons you lots are, running around trying to disassociate him as Yoruba. Not that I'm shocked though. Una are well known as flip floppers..As far as we all know Sowore is Yoruba and his actions is a Yoruba action as you lots were chest beating with prior to his revolution flopped.

Secondly, in regards to the lawyer, nowhere in this article did it indicate he was a member of the group rather it indicated he was their lawyer only. You saying he is and claiming he said it on TV does absolutely not a damn shit. You Afonjas are known to spin stories and fabricate propaganda anything to support your nonsense.

You're just your average Afonja wailing on the mockery you are getting for the shit you lots stupidly and greedily fostered on your shithole nation. grin grin ntoor

A human rights lawyer, Mr Inibehe Effiong, has said no fewer than 60 protesters may have been arrested by the police in the states where the #RevolutionNow protest took place on Monday.

Effiong, who is also the National Legal Adviser of the African Action Congress, lamented that the clampdown on the protesters was an ominous sign of greater danger to come, adding that Nigeria was no longer practising democracy.

He said, “In Ogun State alone, we learnt that about 20 protesters were arrested, while nine were arrested in Lagos. In Cross Rivers, Ondo, Kwara, Nigerians were also arrested for demanding their rights.

“The militarisation is unwarranted. There is no need for this primitive deployment of state power to quell an ordinary civic response to the situation in the country. The government, the police and the army did not need to do this.

“Even the manner they went about it clearly shows that Nigeria is not a democratic country. When you have soldiers and policemen being heavily mobilised with armoured personnel carriers, AK-47 and other assault rifles; and they are opening bullets on people, using tear gas and arresting protesters who were just singing.

“Look at the Lagos protest for example. We were not even disrupting traffic flow. We were just at one spot when those people swoop on us. For me, I find it troubling and it is an ominous sign of the danger the country is facing. It also shows the deterioration of democratic values. It is a way of telling the international community that Nigeria is back to the dark era of censorship, intolerance and totalitarianism.

BUHARI THE GREATEST LEADER FROM NORTHERN NIGERIA AFTER UTHMAN DAN FODIO

by Aare Kurunmi Kakanfo

You can call General Muhammadu Buhari all sort of names what I can assure you that his popularity is increasing all over core Northern Nigeria and across the sahel region of West Africa.

The Fulani with the brainwashed Hausa vassals will fight and die for him. General Buhari is one of the most intelligent and courageous leader the fulani controlled territory has ever produced.

He is always two steps ahead of his distractors and he understands history, power and what it takes to build a civilization.

General Buhari understands that there is nothing called One Nigeria in any sense, it is only an opportunity for his Nomadic fulani kinsmen to survive and build a Fulani country using the sweat and wealth of others legally or illegally under the guise of patriotism and humanity.

He understands that the South and Middle belt are treacherous and can be used against each other. For the records Fulanis Semitic people who are from the Arab stock. Fulanis don't see black Africans as equals and we will never be seen as equals.

Fulanis are masters of deceit, Chaos, they understand how to take control of anarchy to further their interests. They are united in crime and good deeds. They know when to sue for peace and when to crush their enemies.

They staged a revolution using the Hausa peasants to destroy Hausa kingdoms and take over lands and kingdoms of the Hausas.

They also staged a revolution in Oyo empire by conniving with a Yoruba general Afonja together with some Yoruba peasants.

They took over power in Nigeria by using the middle belt Generals to launch a counter coup against the Igbo dominated first republic in order to consolidate their grip on other ethnic groups in Nigeria. They understand power, unity and they are master stategists.

Buhari has appointed strictly minority Fulani as security chiefs in an heterogeneous country like Nigeria.

He has built Baro water port for the North.

He has approved the building of modern railway from Nigeria to Maradi in Niger Republic in order to integrate the economy of his kinsmen in the sahel.

He has also approved the building of oil Refinery in his hometown in Katsina where there is no barrel of crude oil.

Go to Federal ministries in Abuja, almost all the ministries have been dominated from top to bottom with fulani youths who went to university through the quota system while their southern counterparts with First class are in cyber Cafe looking for scholarship opportunities to flee the feudal contraption called Nigeria.

NNPC, CBN and NPA workforce are dominated by the fulanis. They are in all the lucrative and juicy positions across Nigeria.

In the next 30years, they will continue to be permanent secretaries in the federal Civil service. The Sharia infested Decree is a Northern constitution and for the first time a Sharia lawyer is now the chief Justice.

He is decimating the Shiites and empowering the Sunnis. He is buying up traditional rulers all over the south while killing, maiming and detaining southern freedom fighters.

He doesn't want to hear anything like true federalism or restructuring and he is hell bent in creating pure Fulani local government areas for his fulani kinsmen all over Southern Nigeria in a bid to destroy the internal ethnic cohesion of the southern Nigeria. To do this the northern borders are even more open, his fulani kinsmen has mercenaries to glue the Nigerian nation under the Sokoto Caliphate.

As we speak he has used Oil money from the south to establish Fulani radio for the fulanis, which is something that has never happened before.

Thousands of southerners and Middle belterns have been wiped out by the the ongoing Fulani genocide and not a single fulani man has been arrested or prosecuted. Buhari shows no remorse for his fulanocentric policies and continues to March on to decimate his percieved enemies.

Buhari understands power and he has done what no fulani man in post colonial times can do for his people. He knows that southern political elites think along party lines while the fulani elites think along ethnic lines. He knows southerners are treacherous, corrupt and saboteurs and he is using that weakness with ruthless wisdom.

If you are a Yoruba, Edo , Igbo, Tiv, , Efik etc and after reading this article with all these open facts you are still shouting One Nigeria or still screaming APC or PDP under the present 1999 Military Decree then you need to be shot at sight because you are a danger to humanity and your race.

That's reason the revolution should not stop cause when it stop the arrested once will be charge felony but when it continue until government dance to the tone of the revolution the arrested once will be free. the protested can continue without end till government dance to the people tone. if they need fire revolutionist will give fire back and if they need peace revolutionist should also give peace a chance. but in this case who know how prepared they are? start and quench like hot water
