Dear Nigerians, if you’re looking for whom to blame for the human slave auctions ongoing in Libya…blame yourselves.
WATCH: Macron humiliates Africa and her leaders and guess who’s applauding? Africans!
It’s no news that since news of the horrific practice broke, African leaders have failed to speak up. A certain official of the Nigerian government who managed to find her voice blamed the entire thing on Nigerians who are simply looking for a better life as their country continue to fail them.
Worse still, while people are protesting in France, a country in far away Europe, over human trafficking and sale of black people in Libya, Africans in African countries have staged no such protest. They only rant on social media.
Who is the problem of Africa? The answer is Africa.
That’s what French President Emmanuel Macron said during a Q&A after delivering a speech at Ouagadougou University.
“In Libya, we’re engaged in diplomatic relations to find a political solution. Who are the traffickers? Ask yourselves – being the African youth – that question. You are unbelievable. Who are the traffickers? They are Africans, my friends. They are Africans. Ask yourselves the question.
“It’s not the French who are the traffickers, it’s the Africans. So everyone should understand the responsibility, and we’ve started to do that, to dismantle them. But stop the argument saying, ‘It’s someone else.’
“Show me a French, Belgian, German person, who carried out trafficking between Nigeria and Libya. This person doesn’t exist.
“So, these days in Africa, there are Africans who make other Africans slaves, this is the reality. And there are Europeans who benefit from this misery in Europe, it’s unacceptable. In both cases, these are crimes. We are fighting both cases.”
