Today is National Orubebe Day.
Exactly one year ago, Chief Elder Statesman Godsay Orubebe came out to protest what he called bias by the Master of Chill, Attahiru Jega, who was INEC’s captain
We all remember Orubebe chanting “We will not take it!” on live TV.
But while Orubebe made those 5 words popular, he did not invent them.
We travel back to June, 2010. The House of Representatives is in session. Hon. Chile Ogbuagu was asking the House to suspend the members alleging the house was corrupt.
But those members could not take it.
Chief Dino Melaye.
At least now we know Kanye is a huge fan of our country.
Dino Melaye and 10 others were suspended indefinitely, but praise be to God, he still went on to become a Senator, and then a baby boy, and then a “Made In Nigeria women” crusader.
The moral of the story is this; when you see something you don’t like don’t take it! Don’t you ever.
If they ask you why you did it, tell them it is to save the soul of Nigeria, like Orubebe was trying to do.
