I feel sorry for Oshiomhole that despite his Outstanding Works as a Governor, he may now go down in history as a Villain instead of the Hero Status he deserved. Where did it all go wrong for him? We can learn Some Lessons from his Mistakes.

  1. Do Not Take God’s Grace For Granted. Oshiomhole Is No Doubt A Product Of Grace.

For an Ordinary Tailor without even a Primary School Cert to rise through the ranks to become NLC President, a State Governor and the National Chairman of the Ruling Party could only be Grace at Work but when he got to the top, he forgot the Hand that lifted and held him, he elevated himself to the Position of a God and started bragging : “No Man born of a Woman can remove me…”,

“I will give Obaseki Ambode treatment… He became high handed and started stepping on People’s toes. He went into Overdrive, Wielding the Axe on anyone who dared to confront him, Masterminding Electoral Irregularities with Full blown Violence and daring anyone to challenge him… He abused the Grace that lifted him.

  1. Do Not Underrate Anybody.

One of our Proverbs Says: “If You wake up in the Morning and see a Fowl Pursuing You, You’d better run, because You don’t know if it had grown teeth overnight”.

When he was Suspended by his Ward Chairman, he called him a Local Politician, a Village Champion, an ‘Ordinary’ Ward Chairman and refused to appeal the suspension within the window provided by the Constitution. Until a Federal High Court in Abuja affirmed it, then he started running helter skelter, looking for a last ditch intervention to save his head until the Appeal Court gave him reprieve.

He also Serially Underrated the Power of a Sitting Governor.

  1. Pride Goes Before A Fall.

After the Abuja High Court Judgement, he did something admirable; he humbled himself, called a Meeting of the NWC and apologized to everyone with the words “I have realized my mistakes’.

However, realizing your mistakes is not enough, he obviously did not learn from his mistakes as evidenced by his prolonged war with Obaseki.

It was overhead Pride to think “how can I a Whole Chairman call these Neophytes for Settlement”? A true Father does that, sometimes you are at Loggerheads with your own Children and because you don’t want to burn down the house, you call them to yourself, air your grievances and settle the quarrel.

  1. Learn To Retreat Sometimes.

There is a time to be brave and a time to be conscious. Only Cowards keep advancing in battles without retreating, sometimes we need to learn the art of “Winning By Losing”, sometimes you need to learn to retreat and re-evaluate the battle, your enemy and your Potential gains and losses.

Always fight with your sense not your muscles. One of our Proverbs Says: “if you are too sharp, you may cut yourself in the end”, this is what has happened to him.

  1. Beware Of Praise Singers.

Oshiomhole’s Supporters did not help matters either, they elevated him to the Position of a god, they called him Head-swelling names; Oshiothunder, OshioLion, Oshiobuldozer, Oshiowinner, Oshioquake, Oshiofire, the Man who has never lost and can never loss a battle and so many annoying Names and in a bid to justify the Names, he shut his ears to good advise.

The great Oduma of Afemai Music had advised him in his album titled “Last Tenure” that there shall come a time you will look back and see no one behind you but he didn’t listen to the Good Music, he Preferred to dance to “its a goal” and listen to those Fair Weather Afemai Musicians who Campaigned for his adversaries at the beginning but turned back to dedicate a track in every of their albums to him after he had won the Election.

Sometimes learn how to listen and you could benefit even from those who talk badly.

  1. What Goes Around Comes Around.

He did this to a lot of People; Anenih of blessed memory, Saraki, Oyegun,… just to name a few.

He has simply gotten a taste of his Own Pie. Hopefully him and his likes, have learned a good lesson.

A group, the Federal Social Democrats, says the credibility and integrity of the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, have been diminished by the alleged shooting of #EndSARS protesters by soldiers at the Lekki tollgate on the night of October 20.

According to the group, the Lekki incident has eroded the admiration that Sanwo-Olu won with his handling of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group, in statement on Sunday signed on its behalf by Olutola Mobolurin, also condemned the harassment of #EndSARS protest leaders through the freezing of their bank accounts and stopping them from travelling outside the country.

The FSD’s statement was titled, ‘Statement by the Federal Social Democrats On the #EndSARS Movement and Violence in the Wake of Lekki Shootings.’

The group said, “Governor Sanwo-Olu, who before now has been credited with responsible and energetic response to the COVID-19 pandemic, has by this one act lost his credibility and integrity for many. He has a big task in regaining the confidence of the public and youths; his credibility gap surrounding what happened at the Lekki Toll Plaza is not helped by the insensitive bluster of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu at the governor’s residence stating that those who were injured and presumably those who died had questions to answer.”

Though the group condemned the destruction of public assets and looting that trailed the shootings at the Lekki tollgate, it said the mayhem pointed to the alienation of a large number of youths from society by government.

It said, “The so-called hoodlums are the youths that have been denied any stake in society by the self-dealing and state capture that have characterised governance over the last 30 years. Millions of our youths have been uneducated, unemployable and with no meaningful social safety net. Even for the millions who are educated and skilled, long-term unemployment has been their experience in the Nigerian prebendal political economy that serves primarily the interests of public office holders and their cronies.

“Some of the ‘hoodlums’ responsible for the trashing of Lagos are the youths and ‘the toughies’ that many politicians have over the years employed to subvert the democratic process through intimidation of voters and perpetration of violence during elections.”

The group said the organisers of the #EndSARS protests deserved commendation for the resourcefulness, transparency and accountability which they demonstrated.

The group condemned “the growing reports of compilation of names of the assumed leaders and facilitators of the protests for government reprisals.”

It said, “Those that are being targeted are reportedly being prevented from travelling outside Nigeria while accounts of some have been frozen. This is hardly the hallmark of a democratic government that is interested in dialoguing with the youths or learning positive lessons from the #EndSARS protests. It is also a violation of the spirit of government’s acceptance of the 5 for 5 agenda. The President should stop all these acts of witch-hunt.”

The FSD solicited support for the Lagos State Government to rebuild and replace the vandalised public assets.

A man who never put tribalism, religion or differences in his work…. True to his calling to serve our nation without influence of any politician. Not an Igbo man but he speaks Igbo in a way you will be mesmerized and full of laughter whenever he speaks.. He will tell you “Nwannah why disobeying the law?”
People say police is not your friend but in this man I disagree with that notion. In him, i immensely believe that police is a friend when you meet the good type…. The person I am talking about is my Honorable CSP. RABIU GARBA, the DPO of Fegge Police Station.

Yesterday the youth was rampaging looking for Police Station to burn down. When they troop to his Fegge Police Station with gallons of fuel and weapons, most of his men was grip with fear, Behold !, when he came out, the Chants of the angry youths Change from
” We no go agree oh we no go agree oh” to
“DPO Garba you be our friend,
DPO Garba You be our man”

He addressed then properly, lectured them all and changed their perspective towards embracing calmness.. If you know him well you will know he can lecture very well from every angles of courses, law to Biology , physics to Science, religion to culture, he is the master of all… We fondly call him Professor Rabiu, Onye Nkuzi. Tears nearly fall from my eyes, tears of Joy and appreciation of a good man still serving and existing in Police.

This is a Police man i have ever see who believe that hardworking pays. He is a police man and a Farmer as well. He is a Police man and a Civil Engineer. He is a Police man and a Lecturer as well…

To me, I am encouraging all police men and woman to emulate this Young man and learn from his Public relation skill. Because I strongly believe Public relationship should be practiced to serve the public interest, to develop mutual understanding between organizations, the neighborhood and their publics.

As a Psychologist, i have noticed that without publicity there can be no public support, and without public support every nation must decay.”

DPO Rabiu Garba we all know was the man who single handedly build a Borehole water for the people of Fegge Where his station is situated without donations from the public. If i lie verify from anyone you know living in fegge.

He also Organized Sports event for the youth at fegge Stadium where he normally engaged them in Table Tenis playing competition after work.. He walks among all without gun, knife or tear gas because he does his work diligently without corruption. So no fear of the mob.

He attends many church events he is been invited for around onitsha which shows his sense of unity.

When police do bad we mock them when we see one doing good pls my brothers and sister let us encourage that one as to lift his or her spirit to do more because ndi ba anyi is na Etoo dike na nkem omeru omekwa ozo….

DPO Rabiu Garba anyi Oha nile. No wonder people once cried when you wanted to leave to another Station. How i wish we have thousands of police men and women like you, the Police institution would have been so harmonized…..keep up the good work. Good market sells itself in the market…

No wonder Odumeje cherish you so much.

Thank you once again for the way you handled the youth matter yesterday which resulted to zero casualties at Fegge District…

Honourable Ozoigbondu na Umuoji. ( Odoakpa ward 7 Youth Mobilizer and Organizer)

Pls read and Share to appreciate a good work.

Hoodlums Kill Ogun DCO, Burn A Police Station, Steal Arms, DPO Missing



Hoodlums Kill Ogun DCO, Burn A Police Station, Steal Arms, DPO Missing

Angry protesters on Wednesday killed the Divisional Crime Officer, DSP Augustine Ogbeche, and set ablaze a police station in the Atan-Ota Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State .

The protesters also inflicted injuries on the Divisional Police Officer, SP Sikiru Olugbenga, whose whereabouts were unknown.

The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday.

Oyeyemi said one civilian also lost his life to the violence while another police station at Obada-Oko in the Ewekoro Local Government Area, which had been serving as a zonal intervention office for the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad was attacked.

Oyeyemi said, “The hitherto peaceful protest embarked upon by youths across Ogun State is unfortunately taking a dangerous violent dimension as some people with ulterior motives are now using the opportunity to commit all sorts of heinous crimes.

“Early this (Wednesday) morning, the protesters went to Atan-Ota and set the police station there ablaze and subsequently murdered the DCO, DSP Augustine Ogbeche, in cold blood.

“A civilian also died in the process while some arms were carted away. They also inflicted serious injury on the DPO, SP Sikiru Olugbenga, whose whereabouts is yet unknown.

“Also in Abeokuta, some groups of boys attacked Obada-oko divisional headquarters and vandalized it.”

The PPRO however said in view of the attacks on the police and their stations, the Commissioner of Police Ogun State Command, Edward Ajogun, had appealed to the youths to eschew violence and embrace peace.

The police boss, according to the PPRO, said, “The youths are reminded that since the commencement of the protests the police have
“We even went ahead and released all the 36 suspects we arrested. However, if in the course of handling the protests anybody feels offended, we plead understanding and not retaliatory measures, including killing and maiming policemen and burning and damaging police stations.

“We will ensure that justice is served any aggrieved person. Please and please let us continue to embrace peace rather than violence.”

“The command sincerely appeals to the youths. Parents and guardians are also enjoined to help rein in their children and wards.”
