I Stand By What Is Right
Controversial Nollywood actor, Yomi Fabiyi has said that he stands by what is right while stating that oppression has been encouraged by people saying they stay in their lane.
According to the actor who risks being charged with contempt of court by the Lagos state government in the rape case involving Comedienne Princess’ minor, those who do such “scream” for help when it is their turn, that of their children or their relatives.
Claiming that one of the reasons the Nigerian society decayed is because many are raised to always place trouble or faults at the feet of whoever tries to help any spineless or oppressed person, Fabiyi stated that when people and community are raised with the right values, they understand the efficacy of turning up when the other is weak.
“One of the philosophies that encourages evil and oppression on others is the “I stay in my lane and mind my business”.
When it is your turn, your children, your relatives etc and you scream or need help, hope you will not be expecting others who ought to equally stay in their lanes and mind their businesses too to help? Person wey never die, don’t know what can lead to his or her demise. Won’t you be eternally devasted by guilt and your conscience. That is if you have any.

Don’t look around finding who love or patronise you, just be sure they are doing right by your side. Stand by what is right, Rise Above Hate and Envy. I don’t worship humankind, I only worship, the Almighty.
