Eni ba dake, ti ara e a ba dake
1. There are many reasons why silence will never be an option for many people who choose to expose Nigeria's problems.
2. The more we expose evil and madness, the fewer places they have to hide. Remember that.
3. To deride those who speak out about Nigeria's problems is to be in support of the status quo. You are part of the problem not the solution. Silence should not be an option; neither is attempting to gag those who are bold enough to speak out.
4. Nigeria is bigger than any one of us. Nigeria's problems are not funny. They should not be trivialised or used for mudslinging.
5. When someone says something negative about Nigeria that happens to be the truth, try not to take it personally. It is not about you. It is about Nigeria. You may not like it, it does not stop it being what it is.
6. You know what you feel and put it down like that. The activists and so called 'negative bloggers' know what they feel and put it down like that. The online highway is big enough for everyone.
7. I am grateful to bloggers and journalists who expose the ills in my country. With your hard work, it will get better. I hope you never stop.
8. I know you will not stop. You will continue to be the voice of the oppressed in Nigeria: the people with no choice and no voice.
9. It does not matter to me whether as an activist you live in Nigeria or not. Why would that (ever) be an issue? What matters is that you speak out and expose the wicked and the greedy among us. I applaud you for your good work.
10. Miracles don't just happen. They are the result of hard work; real expectations borne out of hard work. And by 'hard work' I do not mean empty prayers asking God to come down and help you! How can he help you when you will not help yourself? If you choose to ignore the fire on your doorstep and attack those who raise the alarm, you have no business expecting a miracle.
*Yoruba Proverb*(Translation): He who remains silent will (forever) be silenced.
