The child of protest has grown By Louis Odion, FNGE

Moremi Ojudu….The Lady who made history

The biggest revelation of the
anti-Buhari protest of last Monday would be Ms. Moremi Ojudu. The amazon
led the column that swarmed the Bourdillon
residence of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in Lagos.

Senator Babafemi Ojudu….A father worth his pedigree

Her appearance is quite historic in
multiple terms. In Yoruba folklore,
her namesake, Moremi, also did great
exploits. In the hour when 2Face,
symbol of entrenched male chauvinism, suddenly developed cold feet, she dared

But much more striking is that she
is the daughter of no other than the Special Adviser to the President on
Political Matters, Senator Femi Ojudu.
Obviously, the falcon could no longer hear the falconer. The feisty amazon came
out to fight her dad openly.

Rather than despair, the glory is
ultimately for the senior Ojudu. It is a measure of political education he gave
his children that one could defy filial bond to publicly disagree with their
dad based on convictions. Many in Moremi’s
shoes would have taken to Instagram and other social media platforms to defend
their dads assumed to be “chopping
in Abuja”.

National Leader of APC welcomed Moremi Ojudu to his Bourdilon Empire and gave her a listening ear

Honestly, I had thought Buhari
people would have latched on to the hem of her garment and formulate the spin
that her existence underscores how liberated Nigeria’s climate has become since
APC took over. Lai Mohammed can even create a copy projecting her as the face of
“constructive engagement” APC has been harping about, in case it
doesn’t rhyme with the “Change
Begins With Me”
With kids like this, there is still
hope for Nigeria.

Louis Odion, the Author gives kudos to Moremi’s father for being patriotic enough to allow his daughter a liberty of the mind

Maybe, we should not surprised at Moremi’s example. She was “born
into the struggle”. She was still a little girl when her illustrious
journalist of a dad joined the league of fearless and progressive journalists
to resist military dictatorship of Ibrahim
and Sani Abacha in the
90s. As the editor of the crusading PM
News and TheNews magazine, the senior Ojudu was a regular at the gulag.
Tired of his rascality, Abacha goons
later waylaid, tortured and locked him up indefinitely.
It was under such defining climate Moremi grew up.

Tuface Idibia…The man who initiated the whole scenario but chickened out at the last hour

Above all, she must have read from Wole Soyinka’s timeless prison memoirs:
the man dies in him/her who keeps silence in the face of tyranny. And now
creeping despondency. 
Obviously, the fortune spent on her
education was well invested.
