Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s arrogant statement in the wake of the Lekki killing of harmless and peaceful youths and the counter-reactions where he maintained that he is still the Jagaban and Asiwaju of Lagos speaks volume of the kind of man that is aspiring to lead a multi-dynamic country like Nigeria.
One thing that Tinubu is easily associated with is that he is an absolute democratic dictatorship who thrives in controversy and manipulations.
However, the recent statewide destruction (if anything else) is a simple referendum that Aworis/Lagos indigenes are tired of Tinubu’s politics in Lagos and we are ready to kick him outcome 2023.
Therefore, we as Aworis should embrace this opportunity and be more united in taking over the political structure from Tinubu, we should come out and strongly keep condemning the political decision that led to the killings of innocent protesters at Lekki, this is when the people need us the most.
Our great state of excellence was built on unity, harmony, and a peaceful environment with a collaborative responsibility of our forebears, we should therefore not allow the undocumented illegal Lagosian refugee politician squatters ‘atohunrinwas’ to spoil what we labored for.
As true Aworis/Lagos indigenes, we must not pitch one division against another. Generational integration, rather than generational shift, should be our strategy of choice.
As I have written several in the time past with the benefit of hindsight of the leadership, elders, elites, and our traditional fathers must propel the foresight of the younger generation. we are no more useful idiots.
The dreams of our leaders, elders and Royal Fathers must be the backdrop of the vision of our sons and daughters in Lagos State.
The wisdom of the elderly elites must guide the knowledge of the youthful generations as we take over the control of our dear Lagos State. Where there are no patriarchs and matriarchs, there will be no unborn generations.
Lagos State building is a continuum; there must be unity of purpose across generations and in the five divisions in Lagos State.
This unity of purpose means we choose to see the plight of the undocumented illegal Lagosian political squatters and their inability to access quality life of liberation not as a political problem, but as a marginalization and imposition problem.
We should see the Lekki killings as a collective assault and not as an individual problem, it is a slap on our collective face of useful idiots and we must collectively respond to this slap.
That is why every Aworis/Lagos indigenes heartbeat whether young or old, male or female, in the five divisions of Lagos State must beat in one rhythm to stand against the oppression of Bola Tinubu. We must declare in unison in one accord that our marginalization and imposition in Lagos State must come to an end as we strategize to take over from the about-to-be-retired political godfather of Lagos politics.
O to geeeee, a ti soro soke!
We must end the political violence, street militancy, harassments, corruption, looting of the state treasury and resources, the deliberate damaging of our culture and heritage, the murder of the innocent indigenes by reckless hoodlums and area boys.
We have to come out to stop the oppression by the undocumented illegal Lagosian politicians and the subjugation of the Aworis/Lagos indigenes by those who ought to vote for their right choice during the election period. Our political marginalization by Tinubu must come to an end, the Aworis/Lagos indigenes must rise up to this challenge.
We must soro soke on political banditry and the looting of the treasury to fund political wars and financing of militants, we must stop selling our voters cards, electoral fraud, and the killing of innocent Aworis /Lagos indigenes just to win elections for the undocumented illegal Lagosian political squatters and stooge looters must come to an end.
Every Aworis/Lagos indigenes dream is to live a better life and leave a better life for the coming generations, to provide honest leadership and to create jobs rather than succumb to the frustrations of unemployment or resort to criminal activities, this marginalization and imposition must come to an end. We are no more useful idiots in our Land.
The youths’ dream is the fuel that has fanned the flames of those peaceful protests on our streets, our university campus and cities across the state landscape and the Diaspora, as well as on various social media platforms, all chanting the rallying cry for freedom, good governance and an end to political corruption and Oshodi boys brutality.
This is the time for all Aworis/Lagos indigenes in the five divisions to stand up for our rights and freedom, no more Baba sope governance of godfathers and godsons, NO to political brutalization, repression, and violence, enough is enough.
We are not useful idiots
I believe that the ultimate resolution of the current challenges the Aworis/Lagos indigenes are confronted with lies in our ability to embrace a compelling picture of our desired future.
I strongly believe that this is the best time to take our state from criminal godfathers and their stooges for the benefit of unborn generations.
