Charlyboy: My Oga at the top; stop the rubbish

Charly Boy has finally weighed in on 'My Oga At The Top' saga. See it below...
It’s unfortunate, this article is coming in late. This is because I almost ignored the racket “ My Oga at the top” generated. However, because of some salient lessons in the whole joke, I have decided to hit you with this.
Even though, my ways may be very different from yours, I still believe we must be objective in our analysis, judgment, and conclusion about others. The NSCDC Commandant,  Mr. Shem’s experience in the hands of Nigerians and the Channel TV personalities cannot be too different from what many of us face on a daily bases.
Some of us have been arbitrarily judged, smashed, squeezed, criticized, and battered for several years because we have failed to be who they want us to be. Different darts and missiles have been thrown at us because they chose to judge us from the first impression they conceived about us. What insult haven’t we received? They will try to judge you by the few words they hear from your mouth. When you use signs and symbols to communicate national issues, they misconstrue every bit of it as you are either tagged the head of Nigeria Illuminati, or they may even try to put your sexuality to question. However, we still love them, and still fight for them even when they don’t really understand why we are here. Some have not even realized the need to hold on to the reality that confronts them today, instead, they are committed to producing gunpowder for the celebration of individual blunder, and they swiftly push national blunder aside.

Yes, the NSCDC Commandant goofed, he failed to give the correct NSCDC website, he wanted his oga at the top to announce that personally, hence he couldn’t go ahead to announce it, as his oga may end up announcing another one later. At first, it appeared to me as if he didn’t understand the question until he got to the point of providing the URL of the website, and then we all laughed when he was unable to provide the web address as demanded. We all laughed at his little or no IT knowledge, and not really because he is not competent enough to do his job. We all laughed because he had displayed some level of confidence right from the beginning of the interview till the point he was to give the website details.

However, is it enough to have made it a trending topic on twitter and on other social sites for days? I must say that we have all failed by pushing aside the lesson and the message of the controversial interview. If you don’t know, the message is simple; there is a systemic failure. We have all failed our country. We have even failed to channel our heavy online presence towards a more positive direction. We have failed to understand that the entire system has no structure as it stands now. If that is not the case, why were we not intelligent enough to see beyond Mr. Shem’s failure and begin to reflect over leadership failure, using the social media platform? It has always remained this way, where only few of us can speak our minds in a country where mediocrity reigns supreme. We have failed to see how mediocre now flood the civil service , but all we are now looking at ,is just Mr. Shem’s blunder. Why???

Members of staff in several organizations know little or nothing about their organization. They can’t even tell ‘categorically’ like Mr. Shem, whether they have an existing or functional website. How effective are various media units that are scattered across different Ministries in the country? NSCDC should even thank God that it was Mr. Shem who failed, and not their media unit, because such would have been possible. I know that majority of Nigerians that work in the civil service are not up to date with the internet social world, as they believe in doing things the old way. You won’t even blame Mr. Shem for not being able to give the correct web address or not being able to add dot.com, because the NSCDC Website, prior to the controversy was almost dormant. How would you expect one to know a website that doesn’t exist or non-functional?

But my pain is simply that we have all failed to tackle the most pressing issues of the day, falling into the trap and deception of the phrase “My oga at the top”. We have been so deceived and then became so careless about our safety, laughing hysterically; with our eyes gazed at “My Oga at the top” until the dreaded Boko Haram found a way to shoot us with their arrows. We laughed until we forgot that we have urgent national issues to address, and the faceless ones hit us hard again in the city of Kano.  What a shame!

While we were busy gossiping, creating cartoons, producing T. Shirts, and cooking beats in the studio to ridicule just a single individual, we lost millions of naira at the Murtula Mohammed Airport, Lagos to some armed men who stormed the airport, harassing both Nigerians and foreigners. I heard they had a swell moment at the airport. You can’t just imagine that armed robbers could succeed even in an International Airport. Where is safe then? “Yet, we were busy with My oga at the top”

While we took the joke to another level, the Boko Haram militants also saw our weaknesses and carefree attitude, and they hit us hard, killing well over 60 people in the Kano bomb attack. They beat all security apparatus in place in the volatile city, because, we refused to watch our back as we were laughing at “ My Oga at the top”

In our usual carelessness, when some people were demanding for amnesty for some faceless people, we kept mummed, because we were only interested in “Oga at the top.” We refused to ask questions on why some people should be advocating for this group.

As good, committed, and patriotic citizens, couldn’t we have embarked on a campaign against violence using the social media platform for that purpose? How many of us are willing to laugh at some of the ogas in the North who have sold the future of our children in the name of leadership tussle? How many of us have been able to tell the Northern leaders that they have failed their people for giving some terrorists the supports they really do not deserve? Yet, we still talk about “My Oga at the top”

These are no time for such jokes as we have better and serious issues to address as Nigerian youth and children. Enough of this “My oga at the top” Stop the rubbish now! Let’s ask them some questions on why we must continue to bury our ourselves.

We sorta got over it until Charles boy reminded us again. As much as I agree with some of what he said, I will pretend Mr Shem did not sound foolish for not knowing NCDC Web site or putting dot com. Next election is the only time we as intelligent right thinking Nigerian's have to fix the problem.

★★PRINCE CHARMING™★★ said...

The Oga at the top is just a case of utter nitpicking combined with humour, although all the resentment thrown at the NSCDC man after that went too far, Charlie boy has a point on the issue of we getting more concerned with more pressing issues like the Boko Haram menace, but then, it doesn't stop the literal and erudite populace at laughing at sheer incompetence, that would keep other's on their feet not to mess up in the future.

Charly boy, thanks for this well articulated write up. Instead of using social media to build solid social capital base for Nigerians, we prefer to use it to trivialise serious national issues.

Anonymous said...

I hate to read but I read this. Brilliant!!!
2 main problems with Nigerians are;
1). Focusing on the fight and forgetting the message.
2). Not knowing when to stop laughing.
3). Blaming God.
We Nigerians often forget about the message and focus on the fight or the unnecessary.
We laugh too much, when we should stop at some point and say, "ok back to important matters." But nooooo, we always want to be "bubblers," not trying to get left out on the joke...... What joke???? The joke's on us actually.

Then we blame God with phrases like "na God,--- na so God want am,----- pray about it, (even if we already know what we should do)." Am Christian but seriously??? This is not the Old Testament when God was doing things by physical fire.....stop blaming God and make your own mountains move!!!! If God would do everything for you then he could as well just make everybody born again and serve him.... No trouble for him.

WHEN THE ISSUE IS TRENDS - OR lets use another word: SYSTEM.

It's not about Shem, it's about the SYSTEM that produces Shem. Or Shems.

Now...lets see how many people will start insulting Charlie Boy on this thread. [To prove the earlier point]

Sir, I would admit I enjoyed watching Mr shem's show of ignorance but I hated the fact that it was overblown by all and sundry. Having said, I think you, Mr Charles Oputa is not in the position to write the epistle you posted especially about the decay in the country. Did you not glamourize all these political thieves in your dead show "zoom time" where you invited the likes of babangida, Atiku, etc on the show. In as much as I believe in freedom, you sir express yourself very negatively. You act like a tout at all times. Your name is almost synonymous with trouble. Haba! Sir, there is a reason we all do not engage in all that we desire and it is called decorum/decency

jamar said...

Charly boy, you have spoken as an avenue to vent your anger on the fact that people also pick on your personality. You speak of Nigerians focusing on more important things, pls tell me, what could be more important than the fact that our leaders and elders of society do not have the basic knowledge they need to lead? the commandant had no reason whatsoever not to know the website of the institution he reprdsents. That is a wrong example to lay for the younger ones. Its deeper than the man not being tecnology or interner saavy, what jappened in that channels studio shows that jobs are not being given to people who ar qualified,it shows that Nigeria is a country where people do as they please and the burden of consequence is not placed o them and lets not go about as if English does not matter in our society, cos it does matter.
Dear Mr. Oputa, kindly use your time to always speak the truth and not use avenues like this to defend the anomalies in our society,including your way of life.
Thank you
Jamar.

Nigerians sit and complain all the time about poor leadership and lack of infrastructure but how many are willing to make their voices or opinions heard by protesting as a collective or as Charlyboy said, using Social media to shame these so-called leaders.

Arrant nonsense...

Direct all your judgment to the government... Are we the ones to fight boko haram, well, until I get a gun don't expect me to face a bomber!

Are we the ones to fyt the airport thieves, NO, govt should cos their stealing made those guy's thieves!

If you've given the wrong person the Job Nigeria will keep being a mess! So let's laff at the protege and his oga at the top while we forget the sorrow that existing in Nigeria comes with.

Charly boy make come off as strange sometimes but he has just spoken the truth. We Nigerians are so tolerant. We hide our pains beneath jokes that will always be hollow in the midst of our reality. Let true laughter come when hope for a better day strengthens into something real that never gives up, and fights for a change. God bless Nigeria.

Imaging...no one can even comment on a motivational talk as this which has been posted for a while now.
I used to be one of those who laughed at d statement made by the commandant and criticized it buh have come to realize that been not able to give the complete URL of the organisation doesn't mean Mr Shem is ignorant or an illiterate but trying to act and respond according to organizational role and the certainty of his boss's reaction to the public announcement of the website. Even the so-called top officials in the civil service and organizations have no factual knowledge of their website. Mind u, there is no one and absolutely no one who is above mistake in this life,so lock-off the saying about "my oga at the top" and start thinking on how the country will be free from all this mess happening than things that are meaningless and makes low our country's image. Criticize right-criticize for a change-criticize for the betterment of our dear country. Proudly Nigerian, Great Nation!

Bro Charlie, you said everything. May God bless you.
There is nothing to add to what you wrote.
Some people are even going around wearing 'my oga at the top t-shirts'. Unbelievable. Nothing but misplaced priority.

i think this man has only used this as a channel to express the effects critics have had on him in the past years. some element of truth on the 'oga at the top' issue but i think his defences are mediocre.

Exactly! This is really causing Distraction & Nigerians are not observant at all, Rugged Man sent a message that We should ALL ignore this Oga @ the top, people started calling him different names. There r issues in this country that we ALL need to tackle together instead We r busy singing Oga @ the top, Is there anybody that's perfect? I hope people will learn from this & move on, Thank You Sir, Mama B!

Shameless nigerians! They can never get tired of mocking this man, as if they have made terrible mistakes in their life. Most of them are uneducated. Linda u better post my comments o, or else...ka chineke mesioku.

Rightly pointed, our tool to fight corruption and many ills in our society has been highly compromised through the wind of mediocrity blowing from all facet of the Nigerian structure. Enough of the rubbish '' My oga at the top'' Mr Charles Oputa i second the motion.

Charly boy, for once na now i know say u get sense. Thank God some thinks like me, but come to think of it, the youths (us) are hopeless, the leaders who are at ur age (40s and above) are senseless, what do you want use to do, This country is failing, sometimes i feel like all the politicians except Fashola and Rochas should be bombed!

Charly Boy trust me, the youth are hopeless, how do they start?
