*On his Twitter handle
Maverick singer and social crusader, Charles Oputa, popularly known as Charlyboy, on Wednesday described pastors and politicians, who own private jets as “bastards.”
The veteran entertainer and human rights activist made the remark while frowning at the comatose state of Nigeria Airways.
In a post via his Twitter handle, Charlyboy(Official) @Areafada1 the leader of OurMuMuDonDo advocacy group shared some photographs juxtaposing other countries national carriers with the dead Nigerian Airways.
He wrote: “What a shame, Nigeria don’t even have a national air carrier yet there are over 100 private jets owned by con men/pastors called men of God and thieves called leaders/politicians.
“May the revolution consume the bastards.”
Investigations show that the Nigeria Airways Ltd was founded in 1958 after the dissolution of West African Airways Corporation (WAAC). It held the name WAAC Nigeria until 1971, when it was rebranded to the name it had, Nigeria Airways, until it ceased operations in 2003.
In a related tweet, CharlyBoy had submitted to his avid followers: “Die No Fear me, My fear is not the bullet that can silence me; because we were all born to die. My real fear is the inability of the suffering docile Nigerian People to wake up from their mental slavery, It is the inability of the Nigerian people to fight for their rights.”
