A cross section of Nigerians have reacted to a statement by Theophilus Danjuma, former Defence Minister, lamenting about the things happening in Nigeria.
Danjuma made the remark while lamenting that leaders from the South West were afraid of speaking out against the Federal Government.
Speaking at the University of Ibadan in Oyo State, on Thursday, Danjuma warned that Nigeria was “in a big hole.”
He said: “In Yorubaland, everybody seems to have lost their voice, scared. And people appear not to care about what is happening. If I tell you what I know is happening in Nigeria today, you will no longer sleep.
“If you want details, I will give it to you privately.”
Reacting to the development, some Nigerians urged Danjuma to speak out or choke with his secrets.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter;
@NekkaSmith, “Aisha knows somethings but she is not telling. Rochas knows somethings but he is not telling. Ajimobi knows somethings but he is not telling. Grand Patron of Nigeria, TY Danjuma has threatened that if he exposes some secrets, we will lose sleep. Your secrets will choke you!
@Safe_journey123, ”TY danjuma should talk what is in his mind, maybe we will sleep or not.”
@salami_isaacnas, “What on earth does people like Gen. TY Danjuma take #Nigeria and #Nigerians for? At his age he shouldn’t be afraid of anything whatsoever. He should indeed talk before it’s too late. There is nothing knee under the sun. If you talk, you die, if you keep quiet you die.”
@OMOIBOSWAGG, “Oga TY danjuma Nepa alone has made millions of Nigerians sleepless so nothing you will say that will affect our sleep, if you get talk talk am.”
@missed_collz, “Someone should tell Oga TY Danjuma that Nepa no dey let we sleep normal.”
@RuthlessAnalyst, “Funny TY Danjuma that knows what is going on in 9ja is Catching Good Sleep evidence by having strength & sanity to deliver a Lecture. Some of this our elders are our Problem.”
@askforlaw, “What will TY Danjuma say that we don’t know? He’s one of the greatest beneficiaries of the mess Nigeria is in. How can one man who’s not even from the Niger Delta be controlling oil wells & pocketing the proceeds to the detriment of the people.”
@dotungeorge, “One of the actors of Nigeria melodrama said, if he blow whistle, Nigerians will lose sleep. Is there any news that can make an average Nigerian lose sleep? No i don’t think so, TY Danjuma have nothing to say apart.”
@askforlaw, “TY Danjuma can start his confession by telling us how he made his billions of $$$ from free oil blocks given to him. Let him explain to us how he & his family enrich themselves from Niger Delta oil well to the detriment of the south-south.”
@benigbakpa, “General TY Danjuma’s unintended revelation will not make us insomniac. Rather, it will awaken our consciousness to see beyond the frolic smiles of those who have turned this country into a closed circle joke. It is better to remain sleepless than close our eyes to perverse sh*t.”
@NiyiOyinlola, “TY Danjuma, help me greet new Jesus who bare our griefs and secrets.”
@SusanHenshaw50, “Join me in thanking TY Danjuma for caring for us so much that he bears the burden of our nation’s disturbing secrets all alone.”
@owo747, “I dare TY Danjuma to say those things he knows. And let’s see if his name won’t appear in so many places as co-destroyer of Nigeria with all the ex-military men in this country. They just think they can be taking us for a ride like horses on Lagos beaches
@YoungOtutu, “At his age; With his achievements; TY Danjuma is still scared of revealing what is going on in Nigeria because Nigerians would be unable to sleep. The heartless general is now acting like he cares.”
@ogbelejechikej1, “Ty Danjuma, Obasanjo and the rest of that clique owe Nigerians the truth. They cannot Rest In Peace if they do not speak out about what they know about Nigeria from 1966 till date!!!
@MrLekanAdigun, “With Adoke repatriated and bound to face charges for his involvement in the Malabu scam and the government’s insistence on continuing the P&ID case, nobody should be surprised seeing TY Danjuma wanting to set the nation ablaze. He’s afraid of the consequences of his own actions!
@DOlusegun, “What TY Danjuma is essentially saying is that if Nigerians knew how much he makes from his oil bloc which makes him worth approximately $1.2billion, we won’t be able to sleep tonight.”
@AEberonwu, “Oga TY Danjuma we are anxiously waiting for you to talk. Why elect to speak privately to those who want to hear from u. That is a mark of cowardice. Before you speak, abeg return our oil well and the profit you have made from it. Because @MBuhari want to collect those individual.”
@Ahmed_Agaie, “TY Danjuma should just say it out loud, if we all don’t sleep; we shall all look for solutions together. Problem shared is half solved. Those affected by insurgent, kidnapped victims and their families haven’t been sleeping for a long time now.”
@jidesanwooIu, “Ty Danjuma got an Oil Block from the Abacha government, but it’s safe to say the alleged “Secrets” of Nigeria only him is burdened with the knowledge of, have given him a Brain Block.”
