Nollywood actress, Funke Adesiyan blasts Buhari, Asiwaju Tinubu, Professor Wole Soyinka, Adams Oshiomole and others



Nollywood actress, Funke Adesiyan has verbally attacked President Buhari, saying she has no form of disappointment in his government because she never voted for him in the first place. The actress who was on the news last week, where she said that the protest was not what Nigerians needed as it would not make any impact, took to her Instagram page to blast the Buhari-led administration.

According to her, President Buhari is egoistic, full of deceit  and a tyrant. In her words, she said:

“There was a country. I am not disappointed in this egoistic, deceitful, two faced tyrant of a president as I did not vote for him, I am more disappointed in men of supposed honour who sold this bad product to gullible Nigerians and yet keep mute as the democracy they alongside many others fought for is being destroyed by this tyrant of a General.”

“I am disappointed in Asiwaju Tinubu, Prof. Wole Soyinka, Adams Oshiomole and many more men and women who had led us to believe they are on the side of Nigeria and the oppressed. We are in a democratic era yet our freedom of speech, expression and association is being threatened and you all are quiet for the fear of what, arrest? What is life without a purpose? I said it last week that it is useless protesting to a deaf horse and protest is not enough. “You now see what I mean? How dare you try to shut people up? You elderly ones who sold us this bad market and yet keep mute in the face of impunity have failed your country. Your loyalty to your country is tainted and untrue. On this day, I wish Gani Fawehinmi and Abami Eda were alive. These were true great men whose loyalty to Nigeria will forever be unquestionable, I weep for Nigeria.”

    This actress turned politician is quite annoying. So, her change is by verbally attacking? Action speaks louder than words. If you didn’t join in the protest, just SHUT UP.
    Blasting, complaining from afar is what we’ve done for years, it got Nigeria no where. We’ve never stood up physically against the government. We have been complacent and docile for too long hoping for a magic turn around. Protest is not for an overnight change, it’s a way for the citizens of the country to stand in unity, solidarity regardless of tribe, religion whatever because the problems in the country is affecting everybody. It’s for our voices to be heard. Nigerians will keep protesting until those DEAF years will pop open. It MUST open. It’s our way to tell the government, you can’t suppress our voices and do whatever you want. We are demanding that you do your responsibilities.
    We have been patient enough, it’s time for them to feel the heat.
    Protests brought several changes around the world. If many countries didn’t protest today, they won’t be where they are. Do you know how many protests that took place in U.S, many lost their lives due to it.

      LOL America was the main country to sell Buhari to Nigeria. Look up David Axelrod. Amechi and all paid the hundreds of thousands of dollars for his media company (the same one that helped Obama win against the Clinton Machine in 2008), to represent Buhari. They came up with the CHANGE slogan (how original, right?) Those buffons Debola Williams and Chude Jideowo were only lower-level media company. But the story sounded sweeter to say that a local media company was what helped APC. Also, looted money, Alxelrod has a strong connection to Obama in all minds of Americans and Nigerians who were in the diaspora during 2008 elections.

      When you see it this way, you start to understand that Michelle Obama carrying the “Bring Back Our Girls” placard was a ploy to discredit GEJ’s presidency. The U.S. refusing to sell arms to Jonathan’s government at that same time, to paint him as a weak government. We Africans, since then anytime something happens, we start doing #bringback… hashtag and slogan. But we don’t understand the media and marketing MACHINE that really made the original chibok bring-bag slogan go viral. It was politically driven.

      That is why I think Obama is a dishonest rat (I campaigned for him then o). And I am very happy that Russia did to America, what America did to Nigeria. Both now stuck with uneducated buffons. At least America cannot get on any high horse to criticize African governments. But their economy is still strong, and that is where Chude Jideowo, Debola WIlliams, and David Axelrod really destroyed things.

      TL;DR — myt friends, greed is bad. It is also universal, from Nigeria to the U-S-A.

    Both sides of the comments (verbal and active protest) may never yield result, until youth ( I mean young Nigerians of today):
    1. Put God first
    2. Separate Politics from Religion
    3. Think One Nigeria
    4. Desire true path to real leadership
    5. Make selfless sacrifice
    6. Build capacity and character
    7. Pick up the original template from our fathers
    Then, a little Vibe and talk will make tremendous Great Nigeria and we’ll begin to be spotted on the Global Scene for Good ASAP.

      Your first point contradicts your second point.

    I’m not even sure what to say sef. That you voted for him or not is not the issue here. Get over it. You don’t get to suffer less because you didn’t vote for him. You don’t get participation points because you didn’t vote for him.

    Even if Gani and Fela were alive you wouldn’t do shut because what you are doing now is what you would do then. You want to tackle those who supported him, na your own. It would help if you came with receipts. Right now she sounds empty which is really sad. Man I miss naijagistlive, at least they knew how to do investigative work

    finally someone peaks what is close to my thoughts, i believe in change but the agent that was brought out to carry out the change was questionable to me. i felt it should have been a younger person that had a plan. i believe in second chances but that’s only when i feel there is an impact that you weren’t given the chance to make in your first chance. this agent was a fraud from the start and the saboteurs of this great nation are still in existence.
    no offence meant but we need a real revolution and purging of the politicians we have to see real CHANGE.

    I totally agree wt her. Infact, she’s saying the truth. Iyabo and co that were busy clamouring for change, where are Thou? Like i knew this was going to happen, the president you pushed out of office told you the sacrifice he made for us to be where we are today but because probably he didn’t come from ur religion or region u tagged him corrupt and clueless. If you agree corruption is not a day fight u would have given that prophet a second chance. Indeed we owe goodluck jonathan an apology. On-behalf of nigerians, we say we are sorry. This will serve as eye opener to all of you that rates religion, ethnicity over good governance.

    Buhari till God choose ‘Next’. Worry more about bloodshed in Nigeria and pray for God’s protection for your family and loved ones. Hmmmmm
