“Dear David, Help me greet your Fantastically Corrupt Dad” OAP Freeze to UK Prime Minister David Cameron

Published

While debriefing the Queen yesterday, UK Prime Minister David Cameron, made a statement about Nigeria and Afghanistan being “Fantastically corrupt” and since then a lot of responses have come in. Click here to read some of them.

On-Air Personality and Event Host, Freeze, has joined in the conversation. He put up a photo on Instagram with the caption:

Dear David, when you get to hell, help me greet your fantastically corrupt dad! I can’t believe that you, a man whose father was implicated in the Panama papers saga and this same you were asked by the opposition to resign because you owned shares in the alleged company that was involved, are now calling Nigeria corrupt??? John 8:7 KJV So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

The qualification required to call someone corrupt, is to be absolutely corruption free yourself.

I wish my president was from the ghetto so he could b**** slap your punk a** and turn you bright pink.

But then again….. He wouldn’t want to stain his palms.~FRZ

    Until we remove tribalism,nepotism,religiousfanatism we won’t be able to stand up effectively and speak in one voice,with all GEJ did some never believed it when they called him ineffective buffoon,now they are calling Us,fantastically corrupt we are ranting,A house divided against itself won’t stand,Buari replied already,He said the collaborators in chief that is UK,should return Nigerian stolen funds in their banks.

      …..and when the funds are returned, what will Nigeria do with it? I believe Cameron made a factually correct statement concerning Nigeria in this instance, that does not negate the fact that he is hypocritical.

      Please, could someone be kind and tell me where the phrase/expression: I laugh in Spanish, originated from? Who first said it or where it came from/how it came about? Every time I see it in a commenter’s post, it makes me laugh or at the very least, brings a smile to my face but I always wonder where it came from. Anyone know?

      Corruption is corruption but Nigerian corruption is done with no form of accountability, deep greed and wickedness. There’s no law in place for any convicted corrupt leader, it’s just now there’s actually a trial that public can be involved in. But even that many Nigerians are busy fighting such change where it turns into tribalism, political party argument and the case later gets dismissed.
      Nigerians, let’s stop being so defensive, accept the truth and prove them wrong by being better Nigerians not by pointing fingers. Nigerians make too much noise. if you are going to defend foolishness, please have substantial, logical things to back it up. Yes, we are corrupt or we are not corrupt look at our excellent education system, power/infrastructure, our innovative skills but we can’t say that. We will open our mouths to say our country is rich but in 2016 still struggling to provide basic necessities. Average Nigerians are suffering, but we have accepted dysfunctionality as part of the culture and way of life.
      Truth is bitter. It doesn’t matter if David Cameron and his dad are corrupt, their country is developed, they have law and regulations, practice rule of law and checks and balance. Even the same Nigerians are emigrating to his country for better opportunities. If your country is not so corrupt maybe you will have better opportunities there, and won’t need to run to the U.K for school and job. On top of it, some of this Nigerians break the laws there, do a lot of illegal things and expect to get away with it. There’s no country that corruption doesn’t take place but the government officials are working together to give something to the people. But Nigerian government officials steal, and nothing is done in the country.

      That’s not the point, please use your brain, that comment shouldn’t come from someone like him. “The qualification required to call someone corrupt, is to be absolutely corruption free yourself.”. By the way, is it the U.S. that isn’t corrupt? Or Great Britian? Or even Canada? I’m Cameroonian but one thing I cannot stand about Nigerians is, when it comes to bashing your country, you guys score number 1, you’re blessed with a phd in that area. The U.S. is way too corrupt, more than any other African nation in my opinion.

      I dont get the heat sha. Words should not be weighted as a function of who says them. Is the statement correct? Yes. With or without Cameron, are we fantastically corrupt? Absolutely. The statement is factually correct. If we dont like it, let us change it. The statement does not in anyway absolve Cameron or Britain of an accusation of being corrupt. So I am not sure why people are having a massive hissy fit over this statement by Cameron. We are almost saying if you are old, don’t point out that someone else is old. Or that if you are uneducated, you should not be able to call someone else uneducated. If nothing else, being corrupt means you know when another group or person is corrupt, obscenely corrupt, or corrupt in ways that undermine the word corrupt. When you no go school, you know who no go school because you know what you dont have. A beg make we move on.

    David Cameron was correct but not politically correct. Nigeria is a fantastically corrupt country.

    Freeze should restrain his “weighing in” to the local celebrities and the beer parlour gist that hovers around Lagos. Cameron Snr took actions that were unethical but not illegal. There’s nothing corrupt about aggressive tax avoidance.

    I’ve said worse about Nigeria. I was in Lagos a while back and I came to the conclusion that Nigeria is finished if Lagos can look the way it did. That country is finished. It’s either we come to terms with it and rid ourselves of this entrapment or it will kill us all. Buhari is a joker if he thinks he can save Nigeria.

      YOU are finished! Not Nigeria. I know Nigeria has got issues but you guys need to be mindful of what you say. If Nigeria becomes “finished”; wouldn’t it affect you or your family eventually? You guys just talk without reasoning. Nigerians forever heaping curses on Nigeria, all in the name of being “factual”.

      May 11, 2016 at 2:15 pm

      God has left Nigeria?
      Who are you to generalize and make such statements?
      When Elijah despaired and became depressed because he thought he was the only true prophet of God left in the whole land, did God not say there are 7,000 other prophets who have also not bowed the knees to Baal. So again I ask you Engoz, how can you make such a condescending statement confidently if you are not GOD?!

    • Engoz

      May 11, 2016 at 2:39 pm

      @Na wa
      Are you seriously going to argue there were no countries God turned his back on in the Bible? Nigeria is no Israel, whom He had a covenant with of which he would. Nigeria is divided between Islam, Christianity and traditional worship. It is not Israel of whom he chastises and then cuddles. Israel had a theocratic government and its foundation are centered around Yahweh. Nigeria is none of these things. Nigeria is analogous to an Egypt, or Edom in the bible. Stop comparing yourself to an Israel. Nigeria is more of an ‘Edomite’ of which God destroyed totally, lmao.

    • Na wa

      May 11, 2016 at 3:22 pm

      Who is comparing Nigeria to Israel?! You seem not to get it, the point I was making is Elijah was convinced it was all finished when in reality there were other God-fearing prophets. You are declaring Nigeria is finished on the basis of a trip to Lagos, my point is YOUR ASSUMPTION (like Elijah’s assumption) is absolutely wrong.

      As I said earlier, next time simply personalize it i.e. it is finished for me in Nigeria, I am finished, etc.

Why do we pay for trolley at Nigeria Airport do you pay such at Gatwick or Heathrow.? Officially how much is birth and death cerificate? and how much do we get it.

    It is neither corrupt nor illegal for a private citizen to hold their wealth offshore. It is the financially responsible thing to do! Inheritance tax here is brutal – 40%. Imagine that 40%!
    After being taxed all your life, saving for your children etc, the govt will now come again and tax you post death!
    What Cameron Snr did was perfectly legal , he started disbursing his will before he even died, to ensure his kids got the bulk of his wealth. He started planning around 5-7 yrs before his eventual death. All the kids knew what was coming to them so no wasteful probate fights. The eldest son had already taken possession of the family home and the parents moved into a smaller flat so as to avoid inheritance tax on the family home. I see this becoming more common, it is sound financial planning, but nigerians are unfortunately uncomfortable with talking about the death and wealth because they see it as taboo – I’m not yet dead and you want to share my property…

    There is an ethical issue particularly if you are a politician in holding offshore accounts but not corrupt. Which Nigerian will even gree to give any percentage of their inheritance go to the govt. Seriously?

    • Becca

      May 11, 2016 at 1:40 pm

      In the UK it is distasteful for MPs/politicians children to be in private schools in the UK let alone abroad irrespective of affordability. It was a big thing during Cameron’s first election whether he would be sending his kids to public school or not. Subsequently, he sent his daughter to a state school however a very selective state school. Dianne Abbot (Labour party, detestable woman) got publicly grilled for sending her son to a Ghanian boarding school!

      The sense being that it is the government’s job to ensure all public schools (used in the naija sense) are of equal standard , improving etc and thus good enough be your father a cleaner or MP. Sending your child to a private school isn’t setting a good example. You are acknowledging the education system under your govt isn’t good enough for general use. If so, what are you doing to fix it? We are all supposed to be ‘in it together’, not open flaunt your privilege.
      Whereas in Nigeria it is seen as the norm & even very well received, almost expected. I personally think it does send wrong message when politicians send their kids abroad, if it was frowned upon as it is in the UK, they’ll be more inclined and motivated to fix and bring the system up to standard instead of leaving those less able to suffer the system.

      May 11, 2016 at 1:49 pm

      In short, it isn’t politically correct to promote unfair advantage especially as a member of Government, the same applies to medical treatment.

    May 11, 2016 at 1:17 pm

    I still don’t understand why this fellow’s comments are given so much publicity. Quite often his public utterances demonstrate why we should all exercise restraint before weighing in on issues that we do not understand properly. Publishing ignorance confidently or in annoyance does not make it any less inaccurate.
    To compare industrial scale theft of public funds in Nigeria to the legal use of offshore tax havens is unwise. Cameron’s dad did nothing illegal or corrupt in moving some of his assets abroad. David Cameron himself has gone so far as to publish his tax returns that demonstrate that he paid taxes on capital gains from monies that were outside the UK in accordance with the rules – there is absolutely no evidence, as of today, that he or his dad broke any laws. People need to stop conflating tax avoidance (which may be unethical but is perfectly legal) and tax evasion (which is a crime).
    I know we don’t like being called out by outsiders, but the sad truth is that our country is indeed EXTREMELY CORRUPT and we know it too. Denying it or choosing to be offended when it is pointed out doesn’t change that reality.
    In my opinion, a more carefully thought out retort to the PM’s comments would remind him and his people that while they choose to look down their noses at us, staggering sums of money stolen from our country and many others is coursing through their economy and helping it to be what it is today – you should not condemn a thief in one breath, benefit from the proceeds of his crime without protest in the next and still hope to be taken seriously.

    People are taking Dave’s comments wrong. I heard and read it to mean it was a progressive and good thing that such ‘fantastically corrupt’ countries were coming for the summit – (“we’ve got the Nigerians coming”) because it means they are ready to change the status quo, and indeed the two countries mentioned – Nigeria & Afghanistan are making considerable moves to stem corruption.
    .
    .
    What exactly would be the point of an anti-corruption summit without the main perpetrators present to agree with any new remedial measures and procedures?
    So bragging we’ve got ‘fantastically corrupt’ countries coming was said in good cheer.

    Nigerians hate hearing the truth especially if it comes from a foreigner, our politicians are among the highest paid in the world, and they still loot. Their supporters fight for them along political and tribal lines no matter how much they steal from them. A good number of Nigerians, are not keen on getting rid of this corrupt system because they hope to take advantage of it one day.
    I can see a lot of people getting upset about the “God has left Nigeria” someone said. We should stop outsourcing everything to God, the only people that can fix the mess created in Nigeria are Nigerians, not God or any oyibo man. To fix Nigeria we have to change our mindset for a start and stop worshiping money.

    D level of corruption in Nigeria has made other countries to look so innocent. There is no perfect system in this world but the case of Nigeria is so pathetic.

    Saying that Nigeria is fantastically corrupt is understatement, Nigeria is a palace/paradise of corruption including Mr Buhari who have mind to send one of his daughter to 1yr English school of £26,000, who failed to give full account of his worth including his partial admission more than £1mill in the bank, five houses & two plot of land, who is busy arresting some genuine Plp Bcos of politically driven. A president who ban first class flew but his daughter flew first class British airways BA, flight 083 from Abuja to London, a president who his daughter Zahra Buhari attended ceremony of one year sister with bullet proof G-wagon suv & convoy of five other cars with heavy military escorts held at no 7, Ghana Street, Maitama, Abuja. What a country!! Many Plp re out there looking for #100 to take plate of food without meat while our leaders re busy spending money unnecessary.

    Comparing Israel and Nigeria, or Elijah and 7,000 prophets who had not bowed to Baal is delusional. God had a covenant with Israel and like someone pointed out he destroyed or asked Israel to destroy so many of the heathen nations around them at different times. Point out a single prophet like Elijah in our public life, none. They pray for the festish kings and politicians and their cronies, don’t ask if the prayer is to the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob or the idols of the town, they will register their presence, wine and dine with the oppressors and the followers abuse anybody trying to point out that it just doesn’t seem biblical. In developed societies a lot of churches hold business meetings an give account of all revenues and expenditures almost like any oganization because nobody is deified or made into an infallible being. Let nobody come after me to defend any”daddy.” with the popular “touch not my anointed” because every child of God is anointed and is the apple of God’s eye, not a select few. All their prophesies are like Ezekiel in the bible says. They play safe, “a popular actor will die in 2020″‘ ” a governor will fall sick”…. Etc. Those were not the types of prophesies people like Elijah prophesied. He told a popular despot King and his evil wife that there will be no rain except at his word”. The despot King was scared of Elijah!
    I dare any “daddy” to face the looters to tell them PUBLICLY that they will experience God’s instant judgement like Ananias and Saphiras if they steal one more dime of money belonging to the public! If they lead the struggle against corruption like the African American church did here, it will stop!

    We like theoretical religion a lot but true Christianity is NOT a religion, it’s a lifestyle.
    God is not mocked and owes no allegiance to anybodyor nation. ” He has shown thee oh man what is good and what the Lord requires of thee, to love mercy, to do justice and work humbly with your God”. It’s in the book of Nahum. It’s the basis of governance based on God’s principles.

    God isn’t going to come down and do what we can do ourselves, only what we cannot do. Keep lashing out at those who speak the truth, Nigeria was developing at one point but it is regressing at this point and that commenter is right that it is under developed. You can be angry at the truth or do something to fix it, truth is constant, our collective ego, bruised as it may be by the truth has nothing to do with it. Ever heard of most presidents in even the developing countries traveling overseas to treat headache? The summary is that Cameron and all the folks who supported the comment here are right! One thing I noticed about Nigerians is that once they get their own share of the national cake, they start singing the “Nigeria is now good tune” because there is no interest in the collective, only their selfish interest. It is interest in the collective that made the west as imperfect as they are set up welfare systems and safety nets for the less privileged. What you deny and tolerate, you cannot change or fix!

    Oh well, the President himself said so before the whole world so I don’t see why Nigerians are now ranting because people are now buying what we have been selling. I pray and hope that Nigerians get better and wiser cos that is the only way Nigeria will be great again.
