Femi Otedola: I Joined The 1978 ”Ali Must Go” Protest

Post by Walex96 »

Billionaire businessman Femi Otedola says he understands the call for better governance by the youth, adding that he joined the Ali must go protest of 1978 at age 16, Igbere TV reports.

Mr Otedola stated this in a social media post on Sunday with the Nigerian flags for emphasis.

Otedola said he shared the sentiment of his daughters – Tolani, Florence (aka DJ Cuppy) and Temi – who joined the #EndSARS protest in London and Lagos.

“The horrors that have been unfolding in our country have left me filled with sadness,” he wrote.

“I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London.

“As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better.

“We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times.” ... 4jwj05y4vz

Igbere TV reports that Tolani and Temi were part of the #EndSARS protest against police brutality in London. Cuppy, on the other hand, joined the protest in Lagos upon her return from Dubai.

Meanwhile, state governments have urged the youths to stop the protest and come to the negotiation table.

Our leaders took us for granted for so long until we woke up from slumber. 2023 will be interesting.
