Nigerians have reacted to a video displaying some members of the Nationwide Affiliation of Seadogs (NAS), popularly referred to as the Pyrates Confraternity, mocking the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Naija Newsreports that in a viral video, members of the Confraternity have been seen gyrating to a tune that mocked the previous Lagos State governor for a speech he made in June in Abeokuta, Ogun State.
Tinubu had throughout the controversial speech said that Emi lo kan, that means Its my flip to get energy after President Muhammadu Buhari.
Within the viral video, the members of the Pyrates Confraternity sang, Hand dey shake, leg dey shake, Baba wey no effectively, e de shout emi lo kan (Arms are shaking, legs are shaking. A sick previous man is shouting its my flip).
Emi lo kan (2ce), Baba wey no effectively, him dey shout emi lokan (Its my flip (2ce), a sick previous man is shouting its my flip.
Following the event, some Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to specific their views relating to the video.
See a few of the reactions under.
That video of members of the Pyrates Confraternity mocking Tinubu along with his “emi lokan” slogan, must let you know that individuals don’t desire the person. Be aware that Wole Soyinka was the founding father of the confraternity, so you may hardly say it’s tribalistic. He’s previous. Let him relaxation.

Rejoice Pyrates Confraternity immediately. Tomorrow, the Neo Black Axe Motion of Africa will do their very own. Then, Buccaneers, Vikings and Eiye Confraternity too will get entangled. Is that this what we would like for politics in Nigeria. Is not it higher to give attention to training, well being & safety?

I used to be completely dissatisfied within the Pyrates Confraternity, to be sincere. In class, I knew them as “Gents.” I do not keep in mind them ever getting right into a struggle with another frat in my time.
Fairly unhappy. https://t.co/uK2orNU78m

Respect to the Pyrates Confraternity. Theyve maintained an attention-grabbing vitality in calling out societal ills over time.
Find it irresistible. https://t.co/eLTaqYSjU5
