Hushmummy: Nigerian Twitter slams Diezani for comments on Yahoo boys

Published

on

Nigerians on Twitter have slammed former minister of petroleum resources Diezani Alison-Madueke over her comment on internet fraudsters known as “Yahoo Yahoo boys”.

The former minister said at a virtual event organised by Ijaw National Development Group that “Yahoo Yahoo boys” are respected in the society.

Footages from the event were posted to Twitter by Jackson Ude, the publisher of Point Blank News.

“The ones that have swag, the Yahoo Yahoo boys, as my son would say; these in short, are the role models they are looking at. These are the ones that reinforce negative societal norms and values,” Diezani said.

“This is a travesty of an unfolding tragedy for us. Why have I spent time talking about fatherless homes and the impact it has on our children? The truth of the matter is that an irresponsible boy tends to become an irresponsible man and it is, therefore, a vicious cycle. If you plant yam, you cannot harvest plantain.”

Diezani who is currently facing allegations of bribery and money laundering in London and Nigeria highlighted the importance of mentorship for young people, saying only hard work could guarantee success.

Although the long-running British probe into Diezani has yet to yield any charges, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has pending corruption charges against her.

Some of the properties linked to her have been forfeited to the Nigerian government while the recently Suspended EFCC chairman Ibrahim Magu in February said she allegedly stole so much money that she needed to be extradited to the country to return them all.

Nigerians on Twitter, however, nicknamed Diezani “Hush Mummy”, a name derived from the alias of a popular Nigerian fraudster Ramon Olorunwa Abbas, popularly known as Huspuppi.

Hushpuppi was arrested earlier in June along with Olalekan Jacob Ponle, also known as Woodberry and 10 others.

The gang was responsible for Dh1.6 billion (about N169 billion) fraud involving over 1.9 million victims. Items worth N15.845 billion (Dh 150 million) were also seized.

Here are Nigerians reactions to Diezani’s comment.
