Nov 30, 2014 – Obasanjo Makes Revolution Call To Nigerian Youths “Fight For Your Freedom”

Ex-Nigerian President Olusegun Aremu Obasanjo today called on Nigerian youths to take responsibility for the freedom of their country.

In a message he delivered at Ijero Baptist Church’s 100th-year anniversary in Lagos, Obasanjo said the generation before him fought for Nigeria’s unity during the civil war and won.

He also claimed that the generation after fought for democracy.

He therefore warned the Nigerian youths to stop complaining  and fight for their freedom.

See transcript of his speech below:

 “Recently, a son of my friend looked at everything around him and got angry and went to meet his dad who is my age mate. He told his father that our generation is a lost one. The father did not pay him any attention so he came to meet me.

“He told me what he told his father and justified it by telling me that he went to the university and graduated but got no job. So, our generation has failed him. So I told him that it is normal because that was how we used to blame the generation before us.revolution nigeria

“But I told him that the generation before mine was the one that fought for our independence. Whichever way we want to criticise them, they gave us independence. Then my generation which you say is not good, fought the civil war. We fought for the unity of Nigeria and if we did not do so, you probably would need a visa to travel to Kano or Port Harcourt. Not only that but that generation also established the foundation of democracy.

“So what do you claim your generation has achieved? It is part of it. We have seen what successive leaders of each generation have done, what can we say about you? What can we say about your generation?”

Are the youths of this great country ready for revolution? Time will tell.

    What do you expect in a nation where the president surround himself with fraudsters, appoint fraudsters into key positions and pardons convicted fraudsters?

    Baba is just realising his mistakes, he should have allowed Late Yar-adua to pick his VP may be Niga would have been better by now. But he (Obasanjo) forced GEJ; who is visionless, idealess and confused. And has end up putting the nation into confusion. God will judge. The revolution will start on him

    Fellow Nigerians, let forget about past if we need to move forward. This is one area where white race is different from Black race. If we are going to continue dwelling in the past, we will end up achieve nothing and we going to hinder our progress by ourselves. I have lived among white folks for a while and I can conclude that they don’t hold grudges for so long. I’m not saying they don’t fight, having disagreement or have malice against one another but they know when to back off. They know the limit compare to our Black folks who will remain on taking vengeance on 200yr.old issue. As for what Obasanjo said, I think he’s damn right about rescue this Country from the jaw of our polithievians who never care about happens to the rest of Nigerians in as much they can take care of themselves and send their kids to better school abroad. Obasanjo came up with hard fact at Eleventh hour and that is the fact that cannot be ignored. I have mentioned this before that our youths are our last hope in this great Country. Our way forward lies on our youths courageous act. Let our youths come forward with one voice and toss out the old thieves including Obasanjo. Obasanjo himself is a mafia, he knew what is going on and he had seen it all. That was why he gave Nigerian that last option because right now he has nothing to loose,then it is left for Nigeria’s youth to grab this last chance otherwise we are doom forever. Remember the last Arab spring which started from Algeria, Tunisia, Morroco, Egypt all these movement were initiated by youths. Let’s go out there use latest information technology, twit, Facebook, whatssapp and other social media to fight off all the thieves in the corridor of power. One good thing is none of them is computer literate, all they think with their brain is how to steal Nation’s money.

    revolution revolution revolution I just hope Nigerian youths are ready for that …. guys are busy making money on the street hustling still going. guys are traveling nook and cranny of the world seeking for greener pastures .. searching up and down for there lost dreams and future.I used to ask my friends can you die for your country nor of them never take me that serious they just felt i am crazy for asking such question or for me thinking to that extent.Some don’t even know what is going on politically,Government policy,Environmental changes and our sinking cultures at various ethic groups.All they care about is how to make money either clean or unclean, argue football and there celebrities, stay updated on the social media facebook,instagram…talking about the big ass they saw on the internet and sort of material things that make up of there mentality and makes them unconscious of themselves.Those are what i am encountered with friends and folks of different classes and age…NO ONE WAN DIE FOR COUNTRY THAT DOES CARE FOR ITS CITIZENS. But we have to know it time we have to stop trusting and believing what we are told. Let everybody think for himself, Know what is right for himself and stand by it. Youths are the corner stone of any successful generation. i think we have to start the revolution by waking ourselves up first. Know what is right and truth and stand by it even if you have to stand alone. we need to educate ourselves socially so as to be awaken to our necessary needs.(sorry for my writing i couldn’t just write all in my head i am confused and frustrated with the situation and storm hitting my country.)
