Segalink vs Oby Ezekwesili: Actress Omotola’s comment rekindles ‘fight’ between two Nigerian Public Figures
Supporters of Madam Oby Ezekwesili earlier clashed with civil rights activist, Segalink and his supporters.
It all started with a Tweet from Gimba Kakanda reacting to Omotola Jalade’s comment on the state of the nation and then Oby Ezekwesili responded saying,
‘It is the degree of damage that hideous partisan politics of the worst variant has done to some of our “youths”. Was it also not here that @segalink when attacking us years ago because of @BBOG_Nigeria hurled similar trash at me who was prevailed on to go into government? #Sick’.
This response set off a chain reaction of tweets, accusations and counter accusation since Tuesday night and all parties involved are still going strong.
See screenshots and reactions below.
Sega is never a fraud, in fact he’s been extremely useful to young people in our society.
You both should thread cautiously & don’t allow whatever to escalate.

So Segalink attempted to smear Oby’s reputation by expressing stating she slept her way up the ladder and y’all refuse to hold him accountable, why?
He isn’t a faultless god.. he should accept his wrongdoings and apologize rather than hiding behind fancy words.

APC cretins in BMC have tried so hard to slander @segalink
They failed because the Nigerian youths that Segalink stands up for daily also stood up to them.
So I have a strong feeling they are the ones using Oby Ezekwesili to do their dirty job.

You have to keep an eye open when dealing with "intellectuals". Intellectuals sometimes feel infallible. Unless they exercise intentional caution, the "floating in the air feeling" can consume them. This is my take on the Segun Awosanya @segalink v. Oby Ezekwesili @obyezeks drama

Jumping into a defensive mode without knowing what you are defending means you are either ignorant or compromised. I see how many are defending @segalink without knowing the reason why Madam Oby is making an example of him. Sega should apologize to @obyezeks. He was wrong

After accusing Mama Oby @obyezeks wrongly, all you need to do Mr Segalink is to apologise publicly.
What you did here is not an apology. You are simply shifting blame.
Don't be clever by half.
Mama deserves a public apology from you. pic.twitter.com/3uLdqUX362

Segalink should have apologized to Madam Oby.

Well even if Madam Oby had issues with @segalink, I don't think this is the right time and channel to raise it.
We are preaching forgiveness yet we keep offences. We are blasting our rulers yet tearing ourselves apart on social media. Older people are behaving like children.

Oby Ezekwesili just used trying to have an altercation with @segalink to gain a little more popularity oo. As people de answer am now, she de laugh de cry too.
