Charly Boy feels the journalist who exposed T.B Joshus deserves a National Award

In the intriguing piece, Charly Boy writes that Nicholas Ibekwe, the journalist who exposed T.B Joshua's gift of N50k to the journalists reporting the Synagogue collapsed building deserved the National Award which was given recently to about 300 Nigerians. He also pledged the sum of N300k to any journalist who shows remarkable integrity in the discharge of his duties. Read his piece below..

"The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it" - George Owells.
How hard service must be in a decadent society like ours where words like credibility, honesty, honor, truthfulness, professionalism and integrity are fast  becoming extinct and rapidly being replaced by corruption, greed sharpness, evil, materialistic lust, the list is endless! That's how deep the rot is. However my story today no bedat yarn.
National awards were given a few days ago to deserving and not so deserving Nigerians. Honorary awards are meant to be given in recognition for exceptional achievements, integrity and distinction. So therefore, I hereby confer my own nationalist award of Officer of the Order of the Niger, OON to Mr. Nicholas Ibekwe.
I'm sure so many of you are wondering who that is and yes until a few days ago, I didn't even know who he was.


He is a young journalist who was bold enough to choose a path of integrity, honestly and professionalism against all odds of being a minority and chose to speak for the truth.
Our minds have become so beclouded with the truth as being shaded that when we come in contact with it, we have a repelling approach to it and may even begin to see those who dare to be bold and speak out as over ‘sabis’ or ITK's (I too know).but really, should that come as a surprise to anybody In a society where morals are eroding, and people have succeeded in convincing themselves that the truth is no longer important.

Our minds are so closed because when we see the truth we can’t even trust it based on the fact that for so long, lies have been exchanged for the truth and now we are caught in-between what is really true and what are lies and thus, the confusion of what is right and what is wrong begins.
Mr. Nicholas Ibekwe chose to speak about the alleged bribe money that was given to them to write a 'good' story about the collapse of the synagogue building. There were 15 journalists there and 750,000 naira was shared. Only one person chose to cry foul! One person chose to standout, one person chose to speak the truth.

For a very long time now, the stone have been left unturned concerning what really goes on in this country. The rich and privileged do whatever they like and as it is the norm nothing happens, because we all have been corrupted by weakness and fear. You hear of the issue for a while and like the wind, it simply blows away. For instance, till now, we are all confused about who’s responsible for the money smuggled into South-Africa, CAN President Oritsejafor Ayo or the Federal Government, we are yet to hear the truth. Like joke, the fight for #bringbackourgirls is gradually quieting. We never know what is really going on. Till date, the allegation against Major General Abubakar Mohammed has not been clarified but the soldiers involved have been sentenced to death, no digging, no probing. If they did, we never heard. When it becomes a crime to report freely criminal activities, then it becomes obvious that leadership is made up of criminals. QED.

What injustice! It takes a little mistake from a less privileged man and his life would be no good from thence forth. I would ask, was the law made only for the poor?

I would say it clearly that what journalist Nicholas Ibekwe did is something I haven’t seen in a million years just to exaggerate a bit. I have been silent about it but have been following the news surrounding the alleged bribe given by T.B Joshua to Journalists to shade the truth. Hummmmmmm
To me it came as a surprise that in this rot, there are a few who are still bold enough to do the right thing. Yeah, people are saying he is an opportunist but I would ask is it not better to be an opportunist with the right thing than an opportunist with the wrong thing? All the journalists who went there allegedly received the bribe were opportunist, as they chose 50,000 over the truth. Others are saying Nicholas Ibekwe declared self-righteousness, but I would say he declared the truth, is it because he was the first who thought of the right thing to do and came out with it?

As a celebrity and a journalist myself, I know how hard it is out there, we are all facing this thing, although everybody own get em level. I understand, just like I understand with my okada boys dem and poor people who need assistance, I do the same thing for the journalists like I do for them. I call mine ‘white envelops’, not given to them as a bribe but as a fact that being in the game I understand the hustle. I don’t care what people say about me in the media so long as whatever you are saying is not based on assumptions but facts.

We’ve been kept in the dark for too long; this should come as a breath of fresh air. We need people who can tell us the true position of things as it is, not sugar coating and shading the truth from the populace.

If not for this my ‘brokage’ thing going on with me right now I would want to do more however the CharlyBoy foundation is pledging 300,000 naira for any journalist who shows remarkable integrity in the discharge of his duties and can write and speak the truth no matter the odds.

I hope Nicholas Ibekwe is reading this, I want to meet you, I want to congratulate you, I would love to reward you for your boldness. You have not only been professional as a journalist, you have also be courageous. Your boldness must never go unnoticed or unrewarded. There is God.
If we make it a habit of not rewarding people who make an attempt to do good, then evil will reign supreme in this country and we all will hate ourselves.

The reality is that a small subset of the population have been working, conspiring, for years against the rest of us in an effort to completely own and control Nigeria and everyone in it. The shitty system and the country we have today is a direct result of this, the ultimate conspiracy. That's why there are a lot of riffraff’s in power, that and the fact that the majority of my people are ignorant of this conspiracy against them. Hummmmm there is Godooooo.

We should all learn to stand for the truth and the right thing even when everyone would be against us for doing the right thing. We are already down as a people and as a nation, what else do we have to lose, we should stand for the truth and protect the right thing at all times...at least from now on.

Dear Charley, I do not agree with your way of life but that is none of my business. All I care about is the truth and that you have spoken.

When we read Jesus story we will be shouting, why did they release Barnabas instead of Jesus? Now, for the fact that people can actually believe that if Tb Joshua was evil that someone like charly boy will come out and expose him makes wonder...if it was in our Generation that Jesus christ came, i doubt if he would have gotten just 1 disciple

Noskey said...

people be like Tb gave Journalists bribe...How? does that audio prove as stated by Nicholas sound like a bribe? Was that the first time that T.B was giving Journalists money? Has he not been giving people money as charity, has he not been helping people? why hasn't they call all those ones bribe..how come they now call this one bribe?...Trial times
