In the aftermath of the 2023 presidential election that produced Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the President-elect, many individuals known for their propagandist tendencies and negative portrayal of the country are now redirecting their focus towards the incoming administration.
However, it appears that they will not have it easy this time around, as the Yoruba people will not tolerate being maligned like the Fulani were in the past seven years of President Buhari’s government.
The Yoruba people, who are known for their industriousness and enterprising spirit, are a force to be reckoned with in Nigeria. They dominate the media industry not just in West Africa, but in the entire African continent. Their influence in the media are in play in the Lagos gubernatorial campaign, where the propagandists encountered stiff resistance online.
The online resistance they encountered in Lagos online campaign underscores the fact that the Yoruba people are not to be taken lightly. They are a proud people who will not allow their reputation to be tarnished by malicious individuals who seek to propagate falsehoods and negative narratives about them.
These are the same individuals who previously spread false rumors about President Muhammadu Buhari’s death and his supposed replacement by someone from Sudan, which is quite absurd. The fact that such baseless rumors could gain any traction at all is a testament to the power of propaganda.
As patriotic Nigerians eagerly anticipate the commencement of Tinubu’s administration on May 29th, it remains to be seen if the Yoruba people will sit idly by and allow their reputation to be tarnished. They have shown time and time again that they are a force to be reckoned with, and they will not allow anyone to malign them or their leaders.
It is important for the propagandists and country castigators to realize that the Yoruba people will not take labeling lying down. They are a proud people with a rich cultural heritage and a deep sense of history. They have contributed immensely to the development of Nigeria, and they will continue to do so under the leadership of President-elect Tinubu.
The victory of Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 presidential election has ushered in a new era in Nigerian politics. The Yoruba people, who played a pivotal role in his victory, will not allow anyone to tarnish their reputation or that of their leaders.
As the nation looks forward to the commencement of Tinubu’s administration, it is important for all Nigerians to come together and work towards building a better and stronger nation.
