How white man’s comment made me join politics — Doyin Okupe

Dr. Doyin Okupe has revealed how a white man’s comment on leadership in Nigeria made him decide to join politics, while he was in medical school in the UK.

According to Dr. Okupe, a 21-year-old man told him the UK was led by the most brilliant, wealthiest and progressive-minded people, while Nigerian leaders come from the bottom of the ladder.

Dr. Okupe, former Senior Special Assistant on Public Affairs to former President Goodluck Jonathan, made the revelation in an interview on VanguardLive TV’s The Controversy on Wednesday.

“I trained as a doctor in the UK,” Okupe told VanguardLive. “In my last year, I was with a hospital on an elective progamme.

“We were just about three blacks in my group and there was nothing fantastic about them (whites). I had to pretend and deliberately say something wrong so it doesn’t appear like I am always right.

“I called one of them (whites); his name is David. I said you guys look so average. How come your society is better than ours?

“What he said shocked me. He said: ‘The UK is run by five percent of the most brilliant, wealthiest and the progressives of the population— that is the top of the pyramid. But in your country (Nigeria), it is the bottom of the pyramid that your leaders come from’.

“I was hurt. I decided then that when I finished medical school, I would join politics and be part of the decision-makers to effect positive change.”

On how far he has been able to fulfill the vow, Okupe said he does not feel fulfilled because he could not do as much as he wanted to.

His words: “I am sad and don’t feel fulfilled because I have not been able to fulfill that vow effectively.

“I had all the opportunities to get good things done because I was not just an ordinary aide to the presidents I worked with. We were friends and partners.”

Asked why he could not make the much difference he desired, Dr. Doyin Okupe blamed it on “the structure and nature of our politics.”

He recalled an instance when he mooted the idea of creating a national IT platform with a guru, “a first-class person on IT matters”, heading it.

The plan did not materialise because some powerful people felt “what’s wrong with you? You create such an important platform and want an Ibo person to head it’?”

The REAL truth about Nigeria is gradually coming out ... after a loooooooooooooooooooooooooog period of obfuscations, changing of subjects, taquiyya, outright lies, deceit, jipiti, etc

It was always inevitable that we shall get to this stage.

For years, whenever someone questions the logic of Nigeria's continued existence owning to the inherent intractable, ubiquitous, persistent, and incurable dysfunction, the person is accused and labelled all kinds of evil names: rebel, dissident, "those who want to destroy our country", etc.

But none of those accusers ever addresses the CORE ISSUES that affect the lives of MILLIONS (at least 70 million) people in Nigeria.

It was only until recently when the terror spread across the country that more people (who always knew the truth, but kept quiet all these years) started to speak up.

They have no choice, because the system they have served and been defending, is about to ensure that their own children would not have a future either. They have started to come out, one by one.
They have no choice.

Let's consider some of the quotes here next ...

The question to ask this "white" British man then is this: Why is your country aligning and supporting the section of Nigeria that insist that such "bottom of the pyramid" people rule and bestride over a country otherwise immensely blessed by God?

When you ask this question, you come face to face with the fact that something else is going on, and even the people in Nigeria who think that they are benefiting from such a system will eventually be the greatest victims of it.

It is already happening today, because the North is about to be overrun by desert-dwelling vandals who have no regard for culture, religion, or anything of human value.

In Igbo we say that  "a child who is dancing to the evil drum-beats of evil people, has no clue that the dance is the dance of demons".

In Northern Nigeria, there are educated and competent people who could rule Nigeria, but the truth is that for every 1 of such northerner, there are 1000 of southerners. FACT!

Let the games continue!

Nonsense...

I once watched a Youtube video where some group of Igbos in two different locations in the East were cursing Nigeria. If you were Igbo, you would understand that the rituals performed by those Igbos, in Igboland (because Igbo land has something mystical and divine about it, take it or leave it) are ALWAYS effective.

For example, if an Igbo person picks up a handful of sand, raises up and shows it to the sun, standing BAREFOOTED on the soil, ANY curse that he or she places on ANYONE who performed an unjust act against him or her would happen. It is not superstition. It is a metaphysical principle, and it works whether you believe it or not.

The Igbo wanted to leave Nigeria because by design and conspiracy, Nigeria was not meant to succeed.
The Igbo saw it in 1967 ( few years "late" after "independence" in 1960) and wanted to leave, but were VICIOUSLY stopped.
I believe that they still want to leave Nigeria today, because Nigeria has not changed from its 1967 inclinations, as Okupe just revealed.

Getting Nigeria to WORK, means getting those who believe that they own the country and MUST rule it, to rescind such beliefs, which is impossible.

Now, if you are not evil, you would start to understand why Igbos want out of Nigeria.
