A Must See! Lagbaja is Speaking Out in ‘200 Million Mumu’ Video & Essay

Published

 on

200 million mumu LagbajaLagbaja is being very vocal this election season, and for good reason. The level of insecurity in Nigeria is at an all-time high.

Earlier this week he spoke out against Doyin Okupe‘s train statements, and called the present Nigerian government ‘deceitful and visionless’.

He accompanied the video release with this essay which he sent to BN and posted on his Facebook wall.

“Ah … what great wisdom our forefathers possessed
À ngba òròmọdìẹ lọ́wọ́ ikú
Ó ní wọn ò jẹ́ kóun ràkìtàn lọ jẹ̀
…The vulnerable little chick is being protected from imminent death
But in ignorance it fiercely protests that it is being prevented
From foraging on the garbage dump (where it would have surely been devoured by hawks)
To those young internet warriors hauling repugnant insults at me and at one another
Please learn to make your point without using abusive and foul language
I shudder wondering… is this the character quality of our Nation’s future?200 million mumu lagbaja artKindly be civil in canvassing your opinions even when upset
I implore you to please just examine the facts for your own future good
Contrary to what some of you ignorantly imagine, and I say this with all respect and humility
If we re-elect President Jonathan, I have much less to lose than you and your generation
In fact I have an incredibly lot more to gain by shutting up and joining your oppressors
Simply, It is evidently clear that President Jonathan is an unbelievable disappointment
Incredible! … So it is indeed possible to overpower Boko Haram200 million mumu patience jonathan lagbajaSo why did he not take this decisive action earlier?
Why wait until election time?
Why wait until he first postponed the elections?
He said he underestimated Boko Haram
But instead of vigorously confronting the menace at the onset
He kept wasting precious time pointing accusing fingers at phantom detractors
Did he now just realize his great error?
After the terrorists repeatedly, gruesomely, massacred thousands of souls?
…Unbelievable!200 million mumu Lagbaja 2
But wait
Even more incredulous is the role of the citizenry
Our docile mumurity gave him free reign
Vigorously going around in circles, but achieving little… beyond
Impunity… Corruption… Deception
One of our biggest problems as a people
Is our absolute worship of power and the powerful
As if a person in power is God
And we his governed citizens are worthless third class creatures
Unless we change our mindset
And understand the basic principles of democracy
This retrogressive cycle would continue
Even after the exit of President Jonathan
You may not be rich
But your well being is as important as theirs and their children’s
As a human being, you have rights
As a citizen of Nigeria, you have rights
While giving utmost respect to our leaders
And acting with all sense of humility as dictated by our culture
We should still demand and insist on justice and equity
Your potentially glorious future is at stake
As the rest of the world leaves you groveling far behind
Scavenging for their leftover crumbs
Undoubtedly, we the people are to blame for our woes
The “leaders” have discovered that they can get away with anything… ANYTHING!200 million mumu obasanjo ngozi okonjo iweala - lagbajaBecause of our docile mumurity as uncritical and comatose minions
Because we never stand up to them and demand probity
That is why one single man could drag the whole nation to this precipice
Because we be MUMU
The painful irony is that we think we are smart
No… they know that behind all the noise… we be MUMU!
That is why Obasanjo single handedly chose Yar’Adua and Jonathan
And led us like sheep into this turmoil
How blessed a nation we could have been
Had he instead used his great cunning for the benefit of Nigeria
The good things he did, his anointed successors destroyed
Obasanjo used his own hands to destroy what he worked hard to build
… Sad testimony… Bad legacy… Sad autobiography
President Jonathan’s woeful failure is the true legacy of Obasanjo
Are we wise enough to learn from this debacle?
And vote President Jonathan out?
And awaken to our citizen responsibilities?
If we, the led, do not keep our leaders on their toes
…Even Buhari when he is elected…
We would remain doomed by the consequences of their reckless impunity
That has been proven by Obasanjo
It has been confirmed by Jonathan
Like many other citizens disappointed by Jonathan
My vote is for Buhari and Osinbajo
First as protest against Jonathan’s inept leadership
Then as fervent hope that providence would smile on our battered gasping nation
It should be obvious to all now…
You, like me, may be small
But even the mightily powerful “big man” is mortal dust
Food for worms
…No man is God!”
Here’s the music video!

      1.) Comeout of d Closet u b APC member it’s notin 2b ashamed 2alligned urself wit a political party of ur choice.

      2.) As much as I don’t like PDP I sincerely can see some CHANGES since certain characters left their party; Obasanjo, Saraki, Atiku, Amaechi etc.

      3.)And as an Unbaised n Observant of Nigerias recent politics I can NEVER be bought by APC being driven by d above names and wit other Masters of everything wrong wit daily struggles of Lagosian; (Mushites, Egbeda, all of Mainland) Fashola n Tunibu.

    So Buhari, tinibu and ameachi are the change we need ba? Tinibu who owns the whole of Lagos, Buhari who doesn’t have certificate and is trying to get into power through fraudulent means, ameachj who has done nothing for rivers state yet is able to fund buhari’s campaign! Nigerians please wise up and close your ears to corrupted minds like this fellow!

    • Tinu

      March 13, 2015 at 11:36 am

      You’re the one who should wake up. Tinubu owns lagos. Is lagos still not working ni? As far as I am concerned, lagos is moving faster and better than other pdp states.

      As per buhari. Please biko shut up. Jonathan has a phd (if he truly does), what has he done? And who cares if buhari doesn’t have a primary six certificate. It is actions we want. Someone who will handle stubborn nigerians. We don’t want a mumu anymore abeg. Enough ofJonathan’s dodoyo-ness. That guy just irritates the heck out of me every time I see him on screen. Commander in chief my foot!

      Raise your arguments, not your voice. You can express yourself without hurling abusive words. Try it, it’s good for your soul.

    • bimbo

      March 13, 2015 at 12:30 pm

      nope Aly. yours is the same argument based on persons than on issues like we’ve seen too many times. Lagos and Rivers are far more developed with the few years of APC rule than ever. That is an issue argument. Not a touted, false certificate ruse.

      Did you read this article well Aly? He never said Buhari is the best. Right now its best we make a change instead of hoping Jonathan will change if voted in again. If Buhari fails, we vote him out too. The idea of his message is we should stop dancing shoki and skelewu and show some concern for our future and the future of our children.

      Daniel’s 8years of PDP in ogun state compare to 4years Amosun as APC governor judge them yourself. I guess the answer is part of the reasons Ogun state has the lowest PVC printed and distributed…. We must wake up open eyes and voteout bad governments. … some mumu will die sleeping.

    • Jakadiya

      March 15, 2015 at 1:07 am

      If all you observe are correct, that’s the more reason GEJ must go back to Otuoke. With all these allegations, a serious government would have put them behind bars, a long to.e ago.

    Lagbaja has always been my man, very intelligent guy. i’m waiting for someone to come and say APC paid him.

    • Shao

      March 13, 2015 at 6:09 pm

      U know why it looks fishy???? Where was this voice when things were going bad e.g Chibok girls went missing, NIGERIANS displaced in Chad, no light, poor education… He did not say anything to push the government to work but why now during elections??? So that’s why it’s all suspicious that we now sees the fault in the current government. Was he sleeping all these time?

      I respect Lagbaja but this sudden realisation is all so suspicious excuse me.

    • Oyinda

      March 14, 2015 at 4:41 am

      If not now, when? after the elections? This is the time when the message he is trying to get across would be most effective so why not now? Our country is going pieces and people are asking why now?!?!
      I am 30 years old and I asked my parents and a few of my aunts and uncles a similar question to what that child asked his parents at the end of the video sometime last year: “How did you guys let things get so bad?” and sadly they had no answer for me. They were actually dismayed that my generation has never been able to experience the good that was Nigeria. Their generation saw the good times and they know more than any other the potential in this great country, but everyone was so caught up in their own lives to think too much about the future.

      If we continue in this manner what would our generation be saying to our children in 20 years?

      Lagbaja please continue the good work, this type of social commentary and discourse is very necessary.

    Lagbaja!! Somebody!! I always say the people do not know the power the possess. The true characteristic of democracy is for the citizenry to have the upper hand in the affairs of governance but in Nigeria today the craze for the nation’s wealth by the people we trusted as leaders is shameful. I use Dubai as an example everytime, not an oil rich land and built in ten years,ahhhhhh a ti suffer gan sha…Then someone will tell me to vote Jonathan, i promise you i will forget that i am a christian, stand naked and curse you… the suffering is toooooo much!!! Kilode!! even if my past life i did bad oooo………..The man that could not even turn is home state Bayelsa to a haven to come home to is the one i will trust Nigeria with. I start by saying i will no longer celebrate ill gotten wealth , infact all this na grammar i need to galavanise the masses and explain to them that this money they are chopping na our own for equal distribution and social welfare….The ruins by GEJ’s government cannot even be reverted by Buhari/Osinbajo in four years but like Lagbaja said My vote is for Buhari and Osinbajo
    First as protest against Jonathan’s inept leadership

    It’s amusing he didn’t raise any fears people have of electing Buhari due to his former stint in office. He didn’t raise people’s concerns about the sort surrounding Buhari! We should risk jumping from frying pan to fire so we won’t be mumus… he stands with a party filled with ex PDP and he wants us to just accept they represent change! After chopping his share he’s coming to preach? We don hear Lagbaja, the only non-mumu in Nigeria

    • bee

      March 13, 2015 at 1:57 pm

      You need to deal with real issues. What exactly did buhari do wrong his first time in office? Can you explain or you are just following the masses with no in depth understanding of your own on why Buhari is no good?

    • prince

      March 13, 2015 at 4:03 pm

      such people are better left alone. bro. you don’t need to reply him/her. it’s obvious the kind of person that he is. I was expecting such resonse

      March 15, 2015 at 10:12 am

      Like Lagbaja rightly said, if the Buhari/Oshinbajo tag team didn’t work, we’ll keep changing until we have a messiah.

    [email protected]jefka…but the sincere truth is that lagbaja has spoken well….the power in our hands…how can less than 50,000 pple be controlling the rest 150 million….so sad. n for those that are deceiving this nation…posterity will judge you all.

    How we easily throw blames around.
    I can vividly recall when GEJ wanted to respond to Boko Haram with fire, everyone (especially Northerners and their leaders) accused him of being unjust. They said that Yar’adua granted GEJ’s people (the militants) amnesty, why can’t he do same for their own people (Boko haram). Then we began the long phase of grant boko haram amnesty until they grew out of bounds.
    Now the same people that were clamoring for amnesty for Boko haram are accusing GEJ of not acting in time.
    MORALE OF THE STORY: If you know what is right do, just do it and don’t listen to spectators rants.
    Tinubu and his cabal sitting in Lagos, agreed over a cup tea to impose Buhari on Nigerians. And we fall for it forgetting the evils of Buhari’s tenure as a head of state. What is the difference between the Buhari of then and now? I rather give GEJ a second chance than give Buhari a chance.

    • Theresa

      March 13, 2015 at 11:42 am

      You do realise that GEJ’s major problem is that he does not give a damn about people like you, right? The only time GEJ responds is when it affects him and his fellow elites.

      Buhari is far from perfect but he acts on behalf of all, not just the elites. During his time as dictator, he had every opportunity to do the same as Gowon( a very corrupt military president), but his refusal to kowtow to what the elites wanted led to his overthrow. Why did IBB, who was more corrupt than him remain in power for so long? Because he satisfied the elite even though the masses groaned.

      When Maitatsine, a Muslim sect similar in idealogy with Boko Haram was terrorising the North, Buhari ACTED and destroyed them in months. They were his fellow Muslims, and their victims were mostly Christians and Southerners, ordinary Nigerians, just like you. But he did not use them to achieve political ambitions, he crushed them even though they were funded by some elites.

      This election my dear Ruby is not about Buhari or GEJ, it is about YOU and your children. It is about making our leaders understand that performance is key to re-election. If Buhari misbehaves in office, he will be sent packing. If you insist on voting for GEJ, know this: when it is time for him to leave office after 4 years, he will select another weak person he can control, just like Obasanjo selected him and Yar’Adua. Don’t you think you deserve better leaders who can transform Nigeria into a worldclass country?

      The devil you know is NOT always better than the angel you don’t know. Take a chance and try change. Even God will not part the sea until we start walking towards it. Goliaths will not fall until we confront them. Do not let fear hold you back from hope and change.

      Thank you Lagbaja for your brilliance and wisdom. Most youths do not realise that people who are shouting “Change” are doing this for them. Most of us are very comfortable, some of us are in the diaspora and enjoy the benefits of good and visionary leaders. We endure insults for the sake of our impoverished yet ignorant countrymen/women who deserve better lives.

    Well said! I couldn’t agree less with him that we are the cause of our own problems.
    It’s funny that those most vocal about Jonathan’s ineptitude are those not even living in Nigeria (with a lot less to lose). Hopefully Nigerians will wise up and make a change.
    Jonathan has shown he is not capable, let someone else give it a go abeg otherwise The Suffering Continues for another 4 years (God forbid)….

    The change we need first is from our mindset especially the youths, which will help us make informed decisions for the betterment of our future and our generations to come. Enough is truly enough abeg, the youths are the most powerful people in this country and the world at large but we just carry siddon dey looku looku like MUMU make some useless OLD men and women dey use do yamayama and tenrich their children in the process while we dey one corner dey suffer like say na we kill JESUS CHRIST. Anyone who wins will not matter if we do not CHANGE our thinking, rise up and fight to have the best NIGERIA ever and uphold that name GIANT OF AFRICA not only cos of the population but because in truth, we are GIANTS and should not be messed with.

    Lagbaja! I think all the guy is saying is we should break the chain of successorship in Nigeria which is almost impossible.because if apc wins,the chain continues.my issue here is that majority of Nigerians want neither Buhari nor good luck but one of these two must win.so who then makes the decisions.?its prolly more about who has better rigging powers.as for good luck. Fool me once shame on you fool me twice shame on me.fool me the third time?that can’t happen

  17. prince

    March 13, 2015 at 12:26 pm

    Did you hear what he says about Buhari, that if he didn’t do well also, he should be voted out. Lets leave sentiments aside, the truth and God knows too is that Jonathan, his wife and their cohorts have disgracefully finish us.

    I am so sure that some of you GEJITES will start hammering at Lagbaja, but get a seat and think for once, has your life and those around you improve? Are you getting the basic things that a government is suppose to give you?

    I live in Abuja and I pay 500k per annum for a one bedroom flat, not within the town because I have to cut my coat right, I’m a taxpayer, yet I still buy fuel to have power, I buy drugs when I’m not feeling fine, water is something I pay for before usage and my responsibilities are abound to increase everyday becos I’m not getting any younger.

    Your vote for GEJ is like an eternity in HELL. This is that time that you need to make a difference, not just for your but generations yet unborn.

    My days….this is the real truth and wish every Nigerian will think like him and put their emotions and pity party aside because at the end of the day, the leaders in Nigeria take the masses as MUMU….we are too content with little and don’t think we deserve more or better….the reasons this politicians do all sorts of evils and get away with it because often times nobody can talk/challenge them……. We are all E-bulldogs that can bark, yell, shout, curse and point fingers online and afterwards matter/case closed, no follow up procedures. (What the outcome or findings on the NNPC external audit investigation?)
    I just wish we can act like other nations that took laws into their lands until change arise…..
    We need to start thinking beyond now and set better place/ environments for our children to great grand children.

    This is the time to fight for better tomorrow…….
    But my fear is the normal rigging of election which will happen and people will keep mum and fold their hands…..my fear! My Fear!! My fear!!!

    Really one party domineering isn’t the best solution. When we switch up parties we’ll see that each party will want to out do the other in that light lead to rapid development. If APC wins this they’ll want to do well so they’ll be voted again and the fear of been kicked out like PDP will make them work harder. Come 4 years time if they don’t do well we’ll kick them out and the next party sworn in will want to do well in order to avoid such fate and that is how the chain will continue.

    What an effective way to get a message across.
    Looking beyond 2015, I think that once we the (mumu) people realize that our votes do count (with use of PVC and card reader) we will wake up and become more engaged.
    Our apathy is mainly due to the belief that “we no fit do anything”. See how GEJ don sit up in the past 4 weeks! It may be GEJ’s legacy that he woke nigerians up and gave us a more rigging proof voting system.

    Power to the (mumu) people!

    I shudder wondering… is this the character quality of our Nation’s future?

    ….
    “Because of our docile mumurity as uncritical and comatose minions
    Because we never stand up to them and demand probity
    That is why one single man could drag the whole nation to this precipice

    Sigh. Honestly Nigeria needs a politician not influenced by APC or PDP because obviously both parties have members or “elites” as you call them who are in it for selfish and greedy interest.. But then, being a realist which country´s politic isn´t influenced by a certain group of people looking for benefits?.
    I think we need a fresh, God fearing, intelligent and strong leader to emerge because honestly Nigeria is so divided between Goodluck and Buhari and no matter who wins, people will always disagree.

    Lagbaja! Well said. It’s time to wake up, we better vote for change, for our future and generations to come, this will also make it clear to future intending leaders that if you don’t lead us right we will vote you out. We have the power let us use it and now it’s the time. No sentiments, No tribe, No religion…. Just one GREAT NATION.

    It’s unfair to blame Obasanjo for the failure of Jonathan. Yes Obasanjo presented him as president but was it his vote alone that brought him to power? Lagbaja is just using his own platform to fight a personal battle. If he has any bone to pick with Obasanjo, don’t spread it to everyone. This song is a regret and a disappointment to an acclaimed African that ran to live abroad. Obasanjo is a hero and Nigeria history cannot be complete without him.

    I duff my hat for an Iroko tree of a man.
