“Fellow Nigerians… We, the People are Worse” – Omojuwa | WATCH



In a new VLog on Twitter, political blogger Japheth Omojuwa has said that Nigerians are part of the biggest problems facing the country.

Omojuwa said part of the problem is that “it’s so difficult, extremely difficult, to prosecute and jail anybody that steals anything more than N1bn”.

“Yes, our leaders are bad, but we the people are worse” Omojuwa said, adding that most people will defend the “big thieves,” but lynch a poor individual who steals to feed his/her family.

    …the problem has never been the leadership but that of followership. The leaders are products from followers. An average Nigerian will turn a blind eye when the big thief is from his/her family/church/village/state.
    Our youths will certainly jump and pass this educative segment and get busy with BBN, Toto Dicke or any other irrelevant subject.
    What a generation…smh

    I completely agree with Omojuwa…. I was very mad when I saw videos online of youths welcoming and hailing Ibori after He was jailed in the Uk for years, It’s sad, It’s really sad.
    We the Nigerian youths have failed ourselves, but the good news is that it’s not too late…Let’s tweet, let’s facebook, let’s match on the streets, let’s go on strike WHATEVER it takes to make Nigeria great again….come 2019, come out and contest, join a political party, whatever it takes to make things right again….#OurMumuDonDo #God bless Nigeria!!! #GodBlessTheNigerianYouth

    Even this one talking is in it for what he will chop. People should just start to use their brians and demand for who is right (Donald Duke, Osinbajo, Peter Obi not Buhari) and what is right (true federalism, regions and not this corrupt-ridden Abuja system). People should be very wary of these new wave of youth activists. I think most of them are even worse than the present crop of leaders.

    What a soulless hypocrite. After collecting money from APC leaders you think you’re worthy of any moral high ground. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You speak for yourself and your belly.

    Completely agree with Omojuwa. It was Joseph de Maistre who said “Every nation gets the government it deserves.” Once there’s a resolute drive, whose stem is a sincere quest to create a change that enable things work, things will work. It starts from the ground up, not the other way round. The problem is most people think it should be the other way round – the government are a reflection of us. You want change??? BE THE CHANGE!!!

    Choosing to focus on the message this time, not the messenger.

    The message is the truth. How can we as a people demand good behaviour from our leaders when we comfortably:
    – Use one way when driving, because we can
    – Drop litter on the floor, because we can
    – Look for who to bribe in order to bypass due process, because we can
    – Jump queues, because we can
    – Treat our subordinates, drivers, nannies, cooks very badly, because can…

    The goons in government also do what they do, because they can.

    What then differentiates us?

    Wow…coming from you Omojuwa, that’s really interesting. I lost every bit of respect for this dude when he allowed himself to be used by APC. To say i was disappointed is to put it mildly. This guy is on APC’s payroll, bullies everyone who as much as disagrees with him and then comes here to tell us how we Nigerians are the problem?Oh please. Don’t take my word for it… compare his tweets during Jonathan’s administration and his tweets now, even in the face of recession. And he is so proud and petty! This guy disgraced bloosom ozurumba on twitter for her failed marriage, but cried foul when Linda Ikeji spilled news about why two ladies(at different times) quit their relationship with him. Watch how he and other twitter overlords will campaign for a 2nd term for this administration. Very soon.

    In the west (the place we’re modeling our democracy after), selective prosecution is actually a thing. Selective prosecution can actually be used as grounds for defense. So when people disagree with EFCC for being selective, those people are not crazy. A criminal justice system should never discriminate! Just think about it, if your child was one of 30 kids late for school, and the school chooses to punish just your child, will you agree?
    So we’re asking Delta State people to be mad at Ibori, their son, for stealing their money that Nigeria has been stealing for decades?
    Nigeria’s problem is foundational. You can’t be fixing your wall paint when foundation problems are cracking your walls. Yes, the people need to do more. But we have to start by being honest with ourselves.

    “Nigeria’s problem is foundational. You can’t be fixing your wall paint when foundation problems are cracking your walls. Yes, the people need to do more. But we have to start by being honest with ourselves.”
    This guy has said it all. Nothing to add. Lets take a long and hard look at ourselves. There is where the true problem lays.
