Special Senior Assistant on New Media to former President, Goodluck Jonathan, Mr Reno Omokri, has called on Africans and Asians set themselves free from mental slavery, warning them to stop worshipping the Europeans.
He noted that it is a display of low self esteem for Africans and Asians to filter their profile images with the French flag as a way of showing solidarity with the French people over the recent Paris attacks, when they do not put their own nation’s flag on their profile when terrorists attack their own nations.
In a post on his Facebook page, the Author and TV host condemned last weekend’s Paris attacks, but urged Africans and Asians to set themselves free from mental slavery, warning them to stop worshipping the Europeans.
According to the cleric, “Terrorism is evil and condemnable. But we should not only cry when it happens in rich nations. We should treat it the same wherever it occurs. I sympathize with France, but why are Africans and Asians putting French flags on their profile when they do not put their own nation’s flag on their profile when terrorists attack their own nations? Are French lives more precious than their own brothers and sisters who are killed daily by home grown terrorists like the satanic Boko Haram and Al Shabab.
“Africans and Asians should remember the words of Bob Marley and “emancipate yourself from mental slavery”. Terrorism is bad everywhere and not just in Paris. In every area of our lives we exhibit this low self esteem.
“We celebrate and worship European soccer and denigrate our own leagues. Now we sympathize with European victims of terror and are indifferent to our own victims. In Nigeria there are 1.5 million citizens displaced by terror. Cry for them first my brothers and sisters,” he said on his Facebook post.
The flag of France has adorned Facebook profile of many across the world in solidarity with France over the Paris attacks.
