Nigeria is in a class of its own. No rival, really. We are so accustomed to hardship, we’ve become longsuffering and if anyone tries to show us the error of that situation, we react negatively.
Hardly anything is going right with the country: recession, corruption, – the same song and dance, actually. But how much longer can we stand it? How many years should we give it time?
For Tuface, or 2Baba, as he prefers to be called, no more. Enough is enough. And so he called for a protest, which many were delighted to be a part of. Then the naysayers came out of the woodwork.
“2face Idibia is a remarkable human being and a great singer. He has done a lot for the promotion of peace during election periods. With all he has done, he shouldn’t dabble into snapshot movements for cool points.”
Every Protest has a sponsor and ulterio motives…
Protest is diff from Revolutionalizing; pple getting tired of a certain norm(s) https://t.co/CqZaAh1lwl

Tuface is a polygamist and shouldn't lead a protest, but Fela Kuti is your advocacy role model.
Your sense of reasoning must be lagging.
