Yul Edochie calls Rufai Oseni disrespectful
In the same post, Edochie urged Oseni to show respect towards the Nigerian President Tinubu. Edochie asserted that the president, being relatively new in his tenure, requires time and patience to bring about changes in the country.
Edochie’s exact words were:
“My friend shut up and sit down! I’m talking to you! You have no right, you don’t have any moral justification to talk where people with integrity are talking! You’re talking nonsense on national TV, you’re a very disrespectful person, you have no respect for the laws of this country! In fact if someone like you becomes president, you will wipe out Nigerians. Are you not the same person that was caught driving on BRT lane? You could not even apologise, if not because somebody had a video, that was when you came on national TV to apologise. This is what you do, imagine the other ones that we’ve not seen before. Who taught you journalism? The first thing they should have taught you is to respect your guests.”
Speaking further, Yul Edochie said that Rufai is not better than every other Nigerian and he needs to go and learn to be a journalist.
“You’re not better than anybody out there. You’re a very disrespectful person and you should go and learn journalism, you are insulting people on national TV”, he said.
The Nollywood star claimed Rufai acts like a god on TV by making his guests uncomfortable and acting like he loves Nigeria the most and is the most concerned citizen in the country.
“Same Rufai Oseni that is insulting people, acting like God on national TV, making your guests very uncomfortable, you dey form like na you get Nigeria, you’re the most concerned citizen, you’re more concerned than all of us, my friend shut up! You have no moral justification to talk to anybody on TV that way because you’re not better than any Nigerian.”
Yul Edochie tells Rufai Oseni to respect President Tinubu
In the video, Yul reminded Rufai about the importance of respecting Nigeria’s president, Tinubu. Stating that Tinubu requires the journalists’ respect, he further noted that the president needs time to mend the nation, considering his short leadership duration.
Yul expressed his views as follows:
“Jagaban, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is the president of Nigeria, that’s the grand commander of the federal republic, GCFR, he’s the president whether you like it or not. He is our president and you must respect him. If you feel like being president, you have the next four years, go and buy form and contest and ofcourse President Tinubu will defeat you. The man just came in, he’s been there for just months, give him time. Rome was not built in a day, Rufai Oseni you’re not better than any other Nigerian out there, ordinary to apologise for driving on BRT lane you couldn’t do it… have respect for our president and the man deserves to be given time to work.”
