‘His cocaine is 1st grade from Colombia’: Top reactions to Doyin Okupe’s ‘GEJ is our Mandela’ remark

Doyin-OkupeThe Senior Special Adviser to President Goodluck Jonathan on Public Affairs, Doyin Okupe has been criticized over a statement he reportedly made comparing President Jonathan to the recently deceased South African icon, Nelson Mandela.

Dr. Okupe was reported to have declared during an interview on Africa Independent Television that “the only one we call our Mandela is President Jonathan.” He said:

“Nelson Mandela was a great leader, he lived his life for the people of South Africa.

I check through the history of Nigeria, among our past and present leaders, the only one we call our Mandela is President Jonathan. There is no president in Nigeria that has sacrificed 13 hours to discuss with ASUU.”

And of course, Nigerians have reacted to these remarks on the social media, and these are some of the reactions:

Habiba Ibrahim (@leschique): Like i said his cocaine is 1st grade from colombia @DOlusegun: GEJ Is Nigeria’s Mandela – Doyin Okupe

Wale Gates (@walegates): “GEJ is Nigeria’s Mandela” – Dr Doyin Okupe. This man shld be left in a padded room with no doors & fed thru a letterbox with a stick.

Tunji (@heymode): President Jonathan should sack Doyin Okupe for making such a sick statement and send him to Yaba left too.

@CrownPrinceKay: I bet Doyin Okupe smoked high grade SK & took a lil of GEJ’s ogogoro before going on set to say ‘GEJ is our Mandela.

seriki david (@davylight): South africa shuts down nigerian embassy as doyin okupe compares jonathan goodluck to nelson mandela…#NAWETINIEXPECT

Olusegun Dada (@DOlusegun): GEJ knows how to pick them. Okupe , Gulak and Reno. Three peas in a pod

@Ayourb: But seriously why will Okupe say becos Jonathan spent 13 hours with ASUU he is suddenly equal to Mandela? This is seriously unacceptable

victor ehikhamenor (@victorsozaboy): If President Jonathan is Nigeria’s Mandela according to Okupe, is Bishop Oristejafor also our Desmond Tutu? #Wonderingcitizen

Adedeji Oluwaferanmi (@Feranz_CFC): People like Okupe are the reason Nigeria looks at least 3 millenniums away from that positive change we need. @abati1990

guv (@guvnorjr): #irresponsibility@abati1990 pls sir advise your president daily to be the mandela of his time and not on the papers as okupe wld suggest.

Me, I just have one question. Do all these comments qualify as intentionally propagating false information through electronic message? #SevenYearsImprisonmentOnMyMind

    Doyin’s lame but I may be wrong if the one he complimented actually swallowed that bull and thinks he’s REALLY Mandela.

    As per that seven years thingy, these feedbacks definitely qualify, well except that they aren’t exactly false information at all. They are so so true, all of it.*chuckling*.

    Mehn, they should amend that bill to include “intentionally propagating false information through television and radio”, pass it into law as quickly as possible, and then use it on this Okupe guy.

  5. Loooooool Walter u for put my own tweet nau. so i will be ur cell mate in Kirikiri.

  6. Lool. so if the answer to ur ‘kweshun’ is yes, then that means that u are guilty as the Chief propagator for compilling all these false information into one article. so u will receive multiple jail sentences sef. one for each 😛
