The Gov I Went To See, Wanted Me To Support Him, As He Heard I Worked For Gani He Panicked. "No–Sam

Lawyer Sam Amadi, a former chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission, recently tweeted: "If corrupt politicians are in love with activists know that d activists are likely fake." The motivations of corrupt politicians and activists are some fascinating issues that are brought up by this remark.

Understanding what Sam Amadi means by "fake activists" is crucial. There are undoubtedly people out there who call themselves activists but are really just utilising the title to further their own agendas. These people could cooperate with dishonest politicians if it helps their careers or personal interests. It's important to remember, though, that not all activists are false and that many are sincerely devoted to the battle for justice and equality.

This dynamic is shown by Sam Amadi's story of meeting with a governor who was ready to help him until he learned that he had collaborated with the well-known activist Gani Fawehinmi. The governor panicked right away and wondered if Sam Amadi was another "Gani." This indicates that the governor was suspicious of anyone who was connected to Gani Fawehinmi because he perceived him as a danger to his own interests.

In Nigeria, where corruption is pervasive and campaigners frequently run afoul of politicians, this kind of circumstance is not unusual. It is crucial to understand, however, that not all politicians are dishonest and not all activists are "fake". There are a lot of honourable politicians that really wish to represent their citizens and fight for a better future for their nation. The same is true of activists, who remain steadfast in their commitment to upholding justice and equality despite stiff opposition.
