Veteran musician-turned activist, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charlyboy yesterday described the present crop of leaders in the country as morons and riffraff.
Speaking at the 2nd edition of the Cross River State Young And Emerging Political Leaders Summit in Calabar, he lamented the killings going on in the country, saying that such wanton destruction of human lives was alien to the average Nigerian.
He also said when Nigerians leave the shores of the country, they become better, but live as slaves back home.
He said: “We are at warfare, we are at war with riffraffs, we are at war with thieves, we are at war with arrogant and ignorant fools, morons who have decided to kill us.
“But I am on a mission, a mission to challenge, a mission to ginger, a mission to ginger the Nigerian youths to take over. Our country is in dare need of direction, no prayer, no miracle can do this, it is all in the palms of our hands.
“The only way to take over from the riffraffs in Aso rock is to come together, coming together to build a formidable force.
“After all, we don’t have experience in killing, we don’t have experience in looting, we don’t have experience in Boko Haram.
“When we leave the country, we are better and our wings are spread, but here we are treated like slaves.”
“Nigerian youths can take over, we can take over in two ways, we either take over collectively or take over divided but we can’t take over divided, we can only take over if we do this together,” Charlyboy said.
