Nigeria have committed youth that always love to change situations even through Radical Activism, but mostly at a point, they all resolve to be revolutionaries instead of revolutionaries. We mostly forget that *it is not about the radical mindset of the individual, it is about a collective pattern of thinking and behavior that changes a society.*

-Radical struggle or conscious Activism is a good thing, in fact it is the most salvaging effort to liberate a people, but before you insist on being a radical figure-head forever, kindly dig deep to understand the beginning and the end of the *past Senior comrades, veteran strugglist, radical critiques and organic intellectuals* that learn from the tradition of Frantz Fanon and Amilcar Cabral, most importantly, remember that you are in Nigeria. Those that have a history of successful radical have a different country, with a different system and a different mentality of the people.

-Nigeria is a country with a Criminogenic problems, with a history of *crushing radical opposition and a rising political detention, intentional abnormalities, unwarranted arrest, reckless assasination, shameless impunity PLUS a disorganized & less conscious youths.* In this part of the world, nobody cares about your rights or privileges, Constitutional recognition or moral ground, try do any "gra gra and see gra gra" claim for your right and receive slap from the violators of your right plus insults from the "country pipu wey no dey support you".

-A country where even the soldiers & the police are killing themselves with no justification, SARS & DSS can "Kidnaparrest" or kill you anytime, anywhere and anyhow, the people only supports you when you are pushing their interest, the media mostly care for money and "create headlines" to rubbish your personality. How did Faruk Lawal ended, the moment you seems to be *growing in Radical sense, be prepared to be intimidated and rubbished* and that's the end of your stories.

-There's a very sensitive lessons to be learnt from two Radical Activists: Adams Osho and Shehu Sani. One was a *radical labour leader and the other was a radical human right Activist.* At a point, Osho and Shehu ended as a party chairman and a Senator. This has proven that Nigeria will always *frustrate your radical confrontations, either through opportunities or threats,* which has killed many radical Activists. Those that died from Activism are forgotten today, the few that remembered them doesn't support their family in anyway.

-A country that never mourn people's death, a country that frustrated the likes of Dr Yusuf Bala Usman, Gani Oyesola Fawehinmi, dismantled Ken Saro wiwa and the Ogoni nine heroes, Comrade Chima Ubani, Bola Ige, Dele Giwa etc and upto this day nothing happen to their Killers. Look, *radicalism in civilized places have public support,* the youths stand by you, organizations funds you, billionaires and concerned citizens will always stand behind the advocates, but in Nigeria the reality is different.

-If you think you are born radicalist, then remember the likes of Prof Yolamu Barongo, Okot a P'itek, the veteran Pan Africanist Ocello Oculi, he likes of Yusuf Bangura, AB Zack Williams, radical scholars, like Dr Patrick Wilmot, Ali Mazrui etc, where are they today? Are we collectively working to uphold what they "radically worked" for? Or we are just hoping for a change without hardwork?. *There was "progressive minds" and what we are seeing today are "problematic minds".*

-Since 1700 down to 1820 to the end of slavery and INDEPENDENCE in 1960, there were *radical defenders of the people, shining stars for radical consistency and total commitment to the struggle for the liberation of the ordinary people* in the midst of bad governance. Since 1999, the return of a confused system of government called "democracy" in politics have ensured that radicals doesn't survive the push, making sure that their "fellow people" are brainwashed against them, with all kinds of threats and criminality over them.

-We need a *patriotic, responsible, selfless, incorruptible, committed and courageous* YOUTHS, not class of youth filled with greed,  fear, envy, ignorance and blind love for politics and politicians, if you are a radical Activist, you'll notice that Nobody want to lack, suffer or die with you but enjoin, anytime you are on a struggle, if you survive it they will hail you and if you suffer it or die, everyone will just pity you, while others mocks you. In fact, those that struggle during the military regimes enjoy better cooperation, support and organizations.

-If things must change, then *everyone or the majority must be part of the struggle.* Secondly, Radical or liberal Activism with a view to changing Nigeria requires the ardent involvement of every sector of the society,
because CHANGE is a collective project That is faced by all in order to promotes moral, political, intellectual and socio-economic development.

Hence, as individuals, organizations, groups and communities, we must

 *Establish a participatory platform on social reorientation, reorganization and collective  hardwork.
* Through which we can challenge, ask questions, contribute, and hold  every leader accountable
for their action for or against the society.
