Abike Dabiri: I Am Angry Over Kemi Badenoch's Comments by politicoNG: 5:13pm On Jul 14, 2022
Kemi Badenoch, in her pursuit to be UK’s next prime minister of the United Kingdom, has slammed Nigerian politicians as looters and dream killers.

“I grew up in Nigeria, and I saw first hand what happens when politicians are in it for themselves, when they use public money as their private piggy bank, when they promise the earth and pollute not just the air, but the whole political atmosphere with their failure to serve others. I saw what socialism means for millions: poverty and broken dreams,” - (Kemi Badenoch)

Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Nigeria in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) Chairman, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has berated Nigerian-British Member of Parliament (MP), Kemi Badenoch, over her comments on Nigerian politicians.

She was responding to a comment by an Iyabo Awokoya on Twitter:

I am very angry this morning. Angry at the nonsense said by @KemiBadenoch the MP/Conservative Party UK in her declaration to run for office of PM. Ms Badenoch, you are of to a poor start. very tactless start in fact.

How on earth is it okay for you to use Nigeria's so-called misrule over the years -a reality we have been combating and doing better at, as your reason for vying for UK Prime Minister position. Ms. Are you vying for a position in Nigeria? Leave Nigeria out of it and discuss your UK issues.

By the way, your UK is on its on slippery slope so just stop this nonsense at once. You it is that was born in Wimbledon as a British citizen, lived in Nigeria only briefly and returned to both US and UK. You were back in your beloved UK and have stayed there since at least when you were 16 years.

Your Universities are Sussex and University of London. You do not have much first hand experience of Nigeria, Miss, so please sit Nigeria out. Please do. We are sick and tired of disrespect of our nation by all comers-what we Yorubas call "oni ruru, gege momo". Wish you luck in your PM Bid

Abike responded, “I am just as angry. I second your thoughts here and will keep my comments for a later date.”

Nigerians no like truth.

If Kemi was in Nigeria, the highest she would have been is an APC Ashawoo like you and that APC women leader.

She left Nigeria and now she has the opportunity to contest for the highest office in the UK, while even in Nigeria you hear things like some certain tribe will never smell the Presidency, minority tribe and other BS.

Even though I partly agree to what kemi has said,I also concur with Abike assertions. Yes Nigeria leaders are extremely corrupt and deeply rooted in embezzlement of public funds and that's the main reason we are canvassing for Peter obi. A man who have shown to be free from corruption and high on integrity.
Many have tried to drag him down but have failed woefully. He is the man for the job and am glad many Nigerians have began to break free from their shackles.

Vote Peter Obi for a brighter future.

Truth is very bitter. If you are angry , simply quit being a liability to the world.
Kemi is right. Most of our politician are great liabilities. When you are busy campaigning for drug lords and all sorts of humans with questionable characters, don't you know you are a liability?

Did this useless Abiku Dagboru actually make the above statement?

But no be lie, our leaders & politicians are dream killers.
How else do you explain a young man with lofty dreams & high hopes of being a doctor only to graduate & end up as a con-doctor or at best a native doctor? cheesy

I saw what socialism means for millions: poverty and broken dreams,”

The socialism part of her speech is absolute nonsense. I can still accept the corruption part of her speech because it’s a reality we are dealing with but lying that Nigeria is practicing socialism that is sending millions to poverty and broken dreams is crassly ridiculous. It is the height of lamba.

This also goes to show that politicians are all lying scoundrels all over the world. They can say anything no matter how ridiculous and unnecessary to win election.

In Nigeria, a certain presidential candidate while addressing issues concerning physically challenged people told his audience that the best advice he got while serving as governor was from a mad man just to appeal to the physically challenged.

It is all politics and nothing else. However, she should be more circumspect next time. Using Nigeria for political clout doesn’t appear like something well thought out. Rishi Sunak and other aspirants with similar background like her did not use their country of birth for clout like her.
