May 2nd, 2014 – Obasanjo’s Daughter, Iyabo Writes Open Letter To Boko Haram “U’re Winning Bcos Nigerian Govt Has Failed”

Controversial daughter of former Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo, Iyabo who wrote an insultive letter to her dad last year is back in the news again.

Iyabo Obasanjo just penned an open letter to Boko Haram terrorists over the abduction of 234 school girls in Chibok Borno state and the recent bombing in Nyanya area of Abuja.

In the letter, Iyabo blasts the dreaded Jihadi sect for using opposition to education as a cover for their evil attacks.

In her own words:

“I am moved to write about the current state of affairs in Nigeria. My first inclination was to write to the President but since all letters to him seem to elicit only open derision and even more stupidity from his inner circle, I have decided to address my letter to a group also currently causing Nigerians a lot of pain and agony that may actually have more sense than the country’s leadership.

Dear Boko Haram, the fact that you have taken arms against the Nigerian state is no surprise. The question should be why haven’t more young people organised themselves against the state? Even the fact that your motto, ‘Against Western Education’ is in a way reasonable given the fact that your leader, martyred by the Nigerian state had university education and found no reasonable employment but had to resort to thuggery for politicians to survive, as the story goes.
He, like millions of Nigerian young people and college graduates, seeing a blighted future are doing anything to survive. They have become opportunistic desperados, almost sub‑human as the stepping on and trampling on each other to death at the Immigration employment debacle indicates.

Where you’re wrong, Where I think you have gotten it wrong are in two areas, if you can pardon my giving you some unsolicited advice.

First, your victims are becoming more and more the people you should be attracting to your side. Take the Nyanya bus massacre. The people that live in Nyanya are usually the clerks, messengers and other lowly office workers that live out in relative slums compared to the rest of Abuja and take public transportation to work to receive monthly salaries they barely get by on.

Consult any written work of successful revolutionaries be it French, Russian, Cuban or even the more recent uprooting of communism in Eastern Europe, to succeed you need the people to be on your side. Right now you are not achieving this. You are targeting the group you need most. This does not make for a successful revolution but you are making yourselves into nuisances to the people and in the end while the state, including its military machine may not be able to conquer you, your downfall will be alienating these potential allies, i.e. the oppressed and down-trodden.

Secondly, the abduction of girls. It must be hard to stay in the bush as all male revolutionaries fending for yourselves with no sexual gratification. Cuban example. But again, reading up on past bush revolutionaries like the Cuban, for example, indicates that they were able to convince some women to go voluntarily with them into the bush. Somehow, revolutionary zeal does not include sexual abstinence and cooking and cleaning by yourselves. Reading must be hard for you since you hate education but the past is a good guide to the future and if you can’t read, you are done for in organizing or succeeding in most endeavours as most things have been done before and reading up on how it was done can only serve as good guidance.

The parents of the girls you abducted are just trying to give their daughters a chance at having successful lives. Without an education there is very little anyone can achieve in this early 21st century. I know living in the bush; it must still seem like the dark ages but the truth is that even with the lack of jobs and opportunities for young people in Nigeria currently, it is still better to be educated.

An educated university graduate who was selling food from a food cart ignited the Arab Spring which was spread by use of the internet which is hard to use if you are not educated. There are writings, videos and stuff you post on the internet which I haven’t seen. But think of it, you can only post and use the internet because some of you have some education. But in the end you have no control over the distribution of your advertising and recruiting information because as you may know, the internet is really part of the western system you despise.

Why you’re succeeding:

The truth is that you have succeeded because the Nigerian state has failed to provide jobs and opportunity for its young people who you can now easily recruit. By disrupting education, you are adding to the burden of the people.

You may say, but how about our religious issue? Let the truth be told, just as there are indigenous southern Muslims, there are indigenous northern Christians even from your epicentre in Borno State and just as you are zealous for your religion, I don’t see them giving up their religion either.

The reasonable solution to this impasse would be for you to advocate for everyone to be able to practice their religion as they see fit with respect for each other’s beliefs. Remember, a couple of centuries ago, all of our ancestors below the Sahara were all animists worshipping various ‘gods. This ‘One God’ — us against them situation — is a relatively recent one in our human history and you will be advised to let the originators fight it out and let your people be.”

Hope they are reading this…..

  2. after years of marijuana smoking in the military by obasanjo, this is the result. a woman talking from her anus.

  3. I don’t even know where this OBJ daughter is heading to, because after reading all she wrote, i ask myself where is she heading to? The only point she make is when she talk about the aducted school girls that’s all.

  4. Iyabo, you really how matured u are in your thinking. Our bible said “follow peace with all men”. I still believe that the books of other religions did not instruct them to end lives as soon as the get the opportunity. I hope you letter bring the bokos to repentance, cos I know most of them are well educated and can read even though they hate western education.

  5. Thank you very much IYABO from the bottom of my heart.Goodness and mercy must follow you and your household for the rest of their lives.We are getting somewhere,I can feel and see the light at the end of this tortured tunnel.Is time to contribute,don’t save it,none is too small,there are end to endurance,is now or never,believe in yourself that you have what it takes to save Nigeria,don’t be discourage because of size or popularity,don’t be shy,cry out in your native language if you can’t speak or write,enough is enough,believe in yourself,stand up wherever you are,whoever you are and roar,that voice you think is too small might be just the right nail to close this coffin of mass killing.Let us join hands as one and tackle this issue once and for all,you are free to go back to your theory of who is mother thief and children voodoo when peace is back,cry and get the attention of those that stands close by,IS NEVER A SHAME TO CRY AND BEG FOR HELP. GOD BLESS NIGERIA.

  6. Have been silent on boko haram’s issues because our leaders knew them, if truely our leaders want to save our lifes and properties they should come together in one voice and put head together to stop boko haram, there is No boko haram in 1991 -1999 regime, 2001 – 2007 regime and now, why 2007 – 2014 regime?.
    The quation is, CAN A HUMAN BEING FIGHT FOR GOD?, The answers is what?, I know deep in my heart that this people are fighting for their interest, how can a human being take his fellow human being life in the name of fighting for GOD?, OH my great country, Lord librate yourself for some group as stain your name for their own interest.
    The Lord revealed to me that most of so called boko haram godfather will fade away before 2015 election and some of their secret will be disclose to the public, so let us be praying.
    May GOD save us oooo(AMEN)

  10. Boko Haram is synonymous to real and present danger which has categorically stamped with all audacity their seeming minion hegemony in blatant dispersal of terror throughout the north and Middle belt of Nigeria, the idiosyncrasy binding this sect depicts horror to the generality of the populace, whose mere mention of the name BOKO HARAM denote shere terror, amongst the generality of people, came a lone voice, first in the history of the nation, daming all malaise by writing the first open letter to this sect I think is a feat to be applaud.

    Should ******, the likes of Obinna, Stanley I, Henry Donacy and Chi Ada re-read and understand the informative and concise message written by Iyabo directly to these ones, my bet is they will have a re-think before publicly exposing and exibiting their ignorance.

    @ Odunaike Benson, before making sarcastic and baseless reference and inference about Iyabo’s right or wrong, I must request you to read without bias her open letter to her father, that letter in it self tells you the kind of personality this astute and sagacious lady is.

    @ Iyabo, your letter shows prudence and without bias, continue to say it as it is, that is how Nigerians have come to know you, stay blessed and may God give you the resolve and truth to say it to them, to him, to her, to whoever they may be, the same way you said it to your father and this inglorious vermins.

  11. I believe she is right this time..we cannot just seat down and fold our arms and watch our great nation been ruin by some miscreant….Enough of all this nonsense….ilu toloba to nijoye….gush

  12. …I hope the intended recipients to this full view public knowledge would rise them selves above every sense of self importance and hearken to the sweet audible sounds good of reasoning♬

  13. IT IS VERY UNFORTUNATE THAT THE AVERAGE NIGERIAN DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO CONCERNING THE PRESENT POLITICAL AND SECURITY IMPASSE IN THE COUNTRY. I DONT BELIEVE IN POLITICALLY MOTIVATED SPEECH ETC. SO I REJECT HER DEPOSIT, TELL HER TO GO GIVE HERSELF TO BOKO HARAM AS RANSOM FOR THOSE YOUNG GIRLS…… THE FATHER WAS PRESIDENT TWICE, BUT TO NO EFFECT…….

  14. She knows who she is referring to. She is actually referring to the sponsors of Boko rams. You people should get it!

  15. I wish the group of idiots, senseless and dead living dogs understood the content of the letter. @obinna and henry, i think they are members of the rodent frogs and flies called boko haram,i also think both of them have gone insane. My dear sis. i wish our so called leaders were like you, thinking positively about this great nation of ours, they (leaders) are but lazy and evil beings. GOD HELP NIGERIA.

  16. henry and obina you guys are mugu.. as for iyabo i hope you are not fulling us because your dad rules us for years nothing was changed expect there was no bombing thou. i hope this is not a political write up because this words are just like part of the trick politicians use , we know them,,well if you are sure of what you write suposor boys and be our leaders we are ready to fight war in this nations , collect my email from naija gist and contact me,

  17. iyabo you still didnt get it NA YOUR PAPA BE PART AND PARCEL OF BOKO HARAM.SO STOP DECEIVING US WITH YOUR FAKENESS.NO BE YOUR PAPA PLANTED GEJ FOR US INCLUDING YARADUA OF LATE KNOWING FULLY WELL ALL THEIR WEAKNESSES?YOUR PAPA IS ONLY LUCKY THAT HIS GRAND DESIGN WAS SUCCESSFUL.SO PLEASE STOP WRITING LETTERS TO NIGERIANS YOU INHERITED BH.
