February 1st, 2017 – 2face Idibia Postpones Anti-Buhari Protest, Releases Official Statement

2face Idibia Postpones Anti-Buhari March, Urges Fans To Meet Him In Surulere Lagos On Monday

Hello my fellow Nigerians…

Since the idea of a nationwide march was first mentioned, the need for urgent solutions to the challenges facing Nigerians has become very clear. The people have hoped for a better Nigeria since 1999 but things are not getting any better for the majority. We are still where we are – poor and desperate. I will be no longer be quiet.

I want to thank EiE, The 2face Foundation, numerous colleagues and countless fellow Nigerians for stepping up to partner with me. I am just a musician with a point of view and the ear of my fans.

I have dedicated my time and resources to peace building, voter education towards peaceful elections and youth engagement in governance in Nigeria. This time around, my partners, colleagues and I have come together to present a platform for real Nigerians to communicate their real pains to government at all levels in a peaceful and articulate manner with a view to getting lasting solutions to our problems.

This march is about demanding that all saboteurs of good government policies should hands off.
This march is about encouraging positive minded Nigerians to continue to work without intimidation.
We have a system that is clearly designed not to work for the majority.

What is this march not about?

It is not a platform for politicians of any party to manipulate. I know you will still spin it but for one second leave your battles aside and just listen to people without trying to score cheap political points against one another. It is not a point scoring exercise. It is certainly not personal.

It is not an organized labour platform. With all due respect to our comrades who have done much for Nigeria, this march is for the unrepresented.

It is not a ‘my religion or tribe is better than yours’ matter. All our blood is red.

I, Innocent Idibia, am a living example of a Nigerian who owes their success to Nigerians of every tribe and religion. None ask what religion or tribe I am before supporting me. I am grateful.

Therefore, it is with every sense of humility that I say that with this march, I want:

1) Security

All Nigerians’ lives MUST matter. My religion, ethnicity or what part of the country I live shouldn’t determine the type of protection I get from my government.
According to the Constitution, ‘the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.’

2) Education
To develop beyond oil, we have to invest in our human capital. Every child must have access to quality education. If our teachers are not paid, how will we raise the next generation to lead the country and run our businesses?

3) Health
Health is wealth. People die daily from lack of basic, affordable health care. We can definitely do better.

4) Power
Government needs to make it easier to generate power at the state and local government level so everything is not tied to the center. We need electricity to be productive. The cost of generating our own power is crippling.

5) Unemployment
Poor education plus a struggling economy means a lot of people are unemployed. Unemployed people are hungry and angry.

6) High cost of living
Food, transportation, medicine, everything is 3 times, 4 times more expensive but our salaries haven’t increased. What do we do???

7) Social Justice
According to the Constitution, ‘The Federal Republic of Nigeria shall be a State based on the principles of democracy and social justice.’
There cannot be one set of rules for the poor and another set for the rich.

8) Transparency
The best way to kill corruption is to increase transparency. Government finances and contracts must be open and available to all. Who got the money, to do what and by when?

9) Cost of government
Our governance is TOO expensive – federal, state, local – cars, housing, allowances. We must reduce the cost of maintaining our public officials

10) Patriotism
I stand with Nigeria. There is enough in Nigeria for all of us to ‘chop belleful’. Enough is enough. We must put Nigeria first and keep all the greedy & selfish people away from leadership.

Call to Action
Between now and Monday, February 6, I ask you to share via videos, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, SMS to 0902-355-5335. How are these issues affecting you? What are your daily struggles? How is it doing you? No matter what part of the world you are, I encourage you to share your stories. And join me on Monday in Surulere or online

Use any of the hashtags #IStandWith2Baba #IStandWithNigeria #OneVoiceNigeria on social media.
We will take all the reports and send them to our elected representatives as ONE VOICE of Nigerians across party, ethnic and religious lines – as they hear real people talk about real issues.

On Monday, February 6, meet me at the National Stadium at 8AM and we’ll walk to the National Theatre – 2 national icons that epitomize our decline – as we state clearly and peacefully that #IStandWithNigeria and Nigeria must work for all of us and all of us must work for Nigeria.

Thank you! God bless Nigeria!!!”

  1. Is it 2face weyris speak this English? I am not biliv am bicos na only small thing wey his take speak English pass away me. So na who was write this thing for him? Na Annie Idibia? Even Annie Idibia can not posibul to speaking like this. It be like say na Fayose was write am. Is true. Is Fayose or Nnamdi Kanu. 2face have join Biafra and is follow to be wahalaring Buhari. When Buhari remember Nnamdi Kanu, his heart is jump like say he go get high patenshon. Is even the high patenshion is carry him to London. Now 2face is also want to be a followment of giving Buhari high patenshion. Why? Wetin have Buhari do to somebody? Na Buhari fault say he old? Even Mugabe is old pass away Buhari but Zimbabwe pipuls are not worry upon him. That is why they are talk for Zimbabwe say Zaban buwe ewebi zuzu ganzwe, which is means say it dey good for man to marry two wife or even three wife so that if one is not born pikin, the other one go born the pikin. Is a thing of sabiliment knowlage. So make 2face have a mercy to Buhari. We know say Buhari no sabi sing song. Na only o cough and to make shwa he sabi. But is not why 2face is join Nnamdi Kanu and Fayose to be high patenshionment of Buhari bicos is Buhari die now, is 2face is cause am. Nonsense. Buhari will not die but live to be like Robert Mugabe.

  2. 2 face in your march you did not include the killing of Christians by Fulani herdsmen in the country. am sure you seeking for recognition’s

  3. TUFACE IS MUCH MORE CONFORTABLE AND HE IS DOING THIS FOR THE SAKE AND BETTERMENT OF ALL NIGERIANS. AND FOR THE PEOPLE THAT SAID HE IS DOING IT FOR RECOGNITION, ARE YOU MORE RECOGNIZED WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE COUNTRY THAN TUFACE?

  4. i dont know y we nigerians re comfortable with wretchedness. ppl wt criticism,wedone sir. 2Baba i gat ur back

  5. Does it matter if this was written by Tuface? The answer is No. This country is in shamble, with no plan. is high time we all come out and take a stand, we should be supportive and not make fun as this is a serious issue.

  6. you are very ***** to insult tuface, God will ******* to say tuface didn’t know how to speak English. do you know how many award tuface have archive? his is still best musician in all African

  7. This march should have been organized when government’s officials were stealing money left, right, and center during Jonathan’s era, but all these people collected money from Jonathan for one jamboree or the other. The treasury was opened to vultures like FFK,Obanikoro, Dasuki, Dezani, and host of other ghost workers in official capacity. The truth is, Nollywood does not have the credibility to call for a match of this nature because they have made millions from the system by partnering with the politicians to swindle Nigerians. I think Nigerian students are better positioned to call for a march throughout the nation and not these people that have soiled their hands eating from the same plate with the politicians since 1999. I love marches that are purposeful and goal oriented and not ones that are aimed at projecting images of artists and political jobbers like these clowns. Nigerian students should rise up and do something meaningful for once instead of indulging in cultism, thuggery, Yahoo-Yahoo, and kidnapping of innocent people. Genuine positive intervention is needed for once by the students in Nigeria.

  8. fine at oluba, bt did u kno it actually take one who has name i mean who is recongnised in d society to lead such. ok wic student can lead such??? now d prob is identified, lets tackle it….. they all re guilty bt we cant leave tinx to go worse dan it is now. if students come out for dis, d leaders wont take dis serioz. nigerians ve lost their patience, if tinx cont to be like dis haaaaaaaa!!!! i reserve my comment

  9. God bless 2baba for speaking on behalf of Nigerian, evenif he did not tlk abt Fulani herdsmen. the president ad d gvnornce knows dier rite.

  10. This is perhaps the most foolish protest i hav ever seen. u want to go an tell d government dat their is no employment,security etc dats somthing they already know.2face is a Moron 4 all i care,he jst lost a fan.This Buhari Man is not looting this country neighther is he doin nothing abt our problems.wen will Nigerians understand dat d problem of this country is too big to b fixed in an ample time. most especially now dat oil prices are at an all time low.let us b reasonable for once as Nigerians.if u dont lik d present government u hav ur chance to say so at d coming polls. wen godswill akpabio was showering him gifts with corruption money why didnt he reject it?Na serious illiteracy dey worry 2face n all of does supporting dis nonsense,it will do dem no gud

  11. The only remedy to dis country is either d country is shared into 36 countries according to d states, like every state becomes country, and every local government will be states, then each community becomes local government, and streets becomes community,poles will become streets den,all governor s will become presidents, and local government chairmen becomes Governors,e.t.c, every president will buckle up den or becomes a failure, Nigeria is too big for I old man to lead,
    2) the should be a restrictionist DAT any president must be within the age range of 40-50 years of age, cos this young ones have something to offer but these old present and past presidents have nothing to offer,their brains are week, plz Nigerians’ wake up and use upgraded people wen their brain still dey hot.

  12. Well done 2face baba, My question is, are you doing these for Nigerians or for d other party? Pls don’t let us start what we can’t finish cos it can leads to war. Let your conscience judge you.
