Adeyanju dumps Charly Boy’s OurMumuDonDo Movement

By: dayan (M) |Time : March 14, 2019, 05:10:42 AM
Rights activist, Deji Adeyanju, has severed ties with the OurMumuDonDo Movement led by Charles Oputa (a.k.a. Charly Boy), citing loss of confidence in the leadership of the group.He disclosed this yesterday in Abuja to our reporter.

“Dear Nigerians, ‬I have resigned my membership of OurMumuDonDo. I no longer have confidence in the leader of the movement, Charly Boy. He betrayed the cause while I was away in prison and compromised with the oppressors,” Adeyanju stated in a WhatsApp message.

OurMumuDonDo, a Civil Society Organisation (CSO), has championed several human and societal rights crusades, with the support of Adeyanju and his Concerned Nigerians group.

The parties have held protests and activities that have put them in the frontline of the fight against corruption and injustice in public offices.

There has, however, been a cold war within the movement, which the ranks have made efforts to contain.A mild escalation in the management of state of affairs consequently led to the emergence of a Free Nigeria Movement (FNM) by some aggrieved members of OurMumuDonDo.

Adeyanju regained his freedom from Kano Central Prison after 78 days of controversial incarceration, following his arrest by the police on December 13, 2018.The absence of Charly Boy at the reception of Adeyanju at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja, raised questions, which deepened the cut. Charly Boy’s advocacy over the years earned him the sobriquet, ‘Area Fada’. So, his absence at Adeyanju’s reception was conspicuous and stoked ill-feelings.

lol, The truth is that I am yet to see any movement "Nigerian" or "Pan-Nigerian" that survived.

Don't take my words for it, take a careful look throughout Nigeria's history.

Some of the people who tried to be pan Nigerian got misunderstood, and some were lucky to escape with their lives. Others didn't. I can't ever forget Chima Ubani.

I've seen MANY such pro-Nigerians fail miserable because the country has a physical (reality) and spiritual (self explanatory) problem.

I shall post the article on Chima Ubani written by Shola Adenekan  Mon 26 Sep 2005 11.39 EDT

Chima Ubani
Dedicated campaigner for Nigerian reform


Chima Ubani, who has died in a motor accident aged 42, was a leader of the pro-democracy movement in Nigeria and a former Amnesty International prisoner of conscience. Since 2003, he had been executive director of the country's Civil Liberties Organisation.

Born in eastern Nigeria, Ubani was the son of a Seventh Day Adventist pastor. Charismatic and intelligent, he became a student leader in the 1980s. He graduated in crop science at the University of Nigeria Nsukka in 1988, and took an MA in mass communication at Leicester University in 2002. He joined the Civil Liberties Organisation in Lagos as a researcher in 1990 after completing military service.

Ubani came into his own in 1993, when the military regime of General Ibrahim Babangida annulled a presidential election that was to return Nigeria to civilian rule. He helped to bring various human right organisations together under one umbrella group, the Campaign for Democracy. He also joined the campaign against oil companies in the Niger delta, supporting such activists as the writer Ken Saro-Wiwa, who was executed in 1995.

In February 1994, Ubani's house and office were raided by security agents, and a report on women and children in Nigerian prisons which he had co-authored was confiscated. He went on the run, but was arrested and imprisoned in 1995, after which his case was taken up by Amnesty International.

The following year, he was released and came to Britain for medical treatment, before returning to Nigeria. After the death of General Sani Abacha in 1998, Ubani worked to ensure a return to civilian rule. But he refused to accept the election of President Olusegun Obasanjo in 1999 as a genuine return to democracy, and lampooned what he saw as a corrupt government which disregarded human rights.

In July 2000, in a case he brought against the Nigerian police, he was instrumental in the abrogation of a decree that allowed state security agents to detain people indefinitely. He also campaigned against extra-judicial killings by the Nigerian police and the use of capital punishment. At the time of his death, he was campaigning against fuel increases.

He is survived by his wife, Ochuwa, and four children.

· Chima Ubani, campaigner, born March 22 1963; died September 21 2005

So, though I don't know Charlie Boy personally, I wager that somewhere inside his mind he just wouldn't think it wise to do more than he is already doing.
To do that would be to be a real "Mumu". haha!
Area fada ain't nobody's mumu.

My brother Adeyanju, please understand!  ;D
