Popular music artist, Falz has dragged the former Minister of Petroleum Resources, Diezani Alsion-Madueke, for saying Yahoo Yahoo boys are the problem of Nigeria. The former minister who has called yahoo yahoo boys the negative influence affecting the nation is still wanted for corruption here in Nigeria, hence Falz trolling her.
The ex Minister, Diezani Alison-Madueke, has bemoaned that internet fraudsters or ‘Yahoo Yahoo boys’ are the problems of Nigeria.
She said this while giving a lecture at a virtual event on fatherhood and Ijaw women participation in politics.
The event took place on Friday, August 7, 2020, with former President Goodluck Jonathan–in whose administration Alison-Madueke served from 2010 to 2015–as one of the guest speakers.
“The ones that have swag, the Yahoo Yahoo boys as my son would say; these in short, are the role models they are looking at. These are the ones that reinforce negative societal norms and values,” Alison-Madueke said.
“This is a travesty of an unfolding tragedy for us. Why have I spent time talking about fatherless homes and the impact it has on our children? The truth of the matter is that an irresponsible boy tends to become an irresponsible man and it is therefore a vicious cycle. If you plant yam, you cannot harvest plantain,” she lectured.
“There are no shortcuts to working your way up the ladder of life. Progressing in life, in work and in relationship, marital or otherwise, is always dependent on consistent effort and on hard work.
“As we create more responsible young men and women, we will generate more responsible fathers, which in turn will engender a more sustainable society and build a greater nation of successful Ijaw men and women.
“And to do this, we need to go back to the fundamentals,” she added.
After making this statement, Falz who is known to condemn hypocrisy and bad governance in most of his songs condemned this woman for dragging yahoo boys when she is also wanted for corruption here in Nigeria. In his words : ” You are on the run, but your mouth still dey run, who be yahoo girl, if no be you.”
