Obasanjo Blasts Eedris Abdulkarem Again

For those who thought former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s anger towards Nigerian rapper, Eidris Abdulkarem’s 2004 hit song, “Nigeria jaga jaga”, has subsided and gone with the years goofed because the dust is yet to settle on the matter.

According to him, “One of the worst problems Nigeria is facing is disbelief.

Nigerians no longer believe in themselves neither do they believe in their country. That takes me back to that song ‘jaga jaga’. How could a sane man dare to call his country jajajaja? It is the height of blasphemy.

We are grooming our youths for tomorrow’s leadership and with such persons I don’t think the country can move forward.
Concretely put, leadership connotes ability to inspire, direct, move, motivate, propel and encourage others positively to the targeted end. It is simply the ability to lead others.

An effective leader strives to avoid failure by guarding against inability to organize details, unwillingness to render humble services, fear of competition from followers, lack of imagination, selfishness, intemperance, living on rumors and gossips, favoritism and nepotism, emphasis on title and authority, excessive stress and burn out.

He must also remember that leadership is an interaction between the characteristics of the leader himself and the characteristics of the situation in which leadership takes place.”

Conclusively, the Ota farmer buttressed that, “leadership should be a relay race and not an obstacle race.”

  1. To me Eedris is trying to criticize the government which is good if a government wants to achieve greater goal. Though criticism might be constructive or destructive, we must always bear and look into it.

  2. Nonsense. Music is an art, musicians do not cover politicians’ asses, they expose them, that is what awareness is about. Obasanjo is an asshole, never said that before but here it is. So it’s better for the music industry to rut in limbo while musicians are promoting nothing but sex and alcohol without political awareness? Even the old yoruba musicians talked about politics. This man is a joke. “Fuck Obasanjo”… That’s a line Tupac/Eminem would love to use. Amen.

  3. THIS IS WHAT WE EXPECT FROM TRUE LEADERSHIP. HOW CAN A PERSON RULE WHEN HE DOES NOT HAVE HIS/HER NATION AT HEART. EEDRIS ABDULKARIM IS JUST ONE TOUT LOOKING FOR A CHEAP POPULARITY & AUDIENCE. I AM PROUD TO BE A NIGERIAN NO MATTER THE CHALLENGES, NO MATTER THE DIFFICULTIES. I BELIEVE IN NIGERIA

  5. If Eedris becomes the President of Nigeria some day, he will do absolutely nothing. He knows nothing about governance or politics. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo is the best President Nigeria has ever had. SIR, Am loyal!
