‘My Oga at the top,’ Shem Obafaiye, becomes NSCDC’s deputy commandant general

Shem Obafaiye, the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) officer famous for “my Oga at the top” mantra, has been promoted as deputy commandant general.

The photo of Mr Obafaiye being decorated by Interior Minister Olubunmi Tunji-Ojo went viral on Friday, two days after he and two other officers were promoted.
Sharing the photos of Mr Obafaiye and two other officers on Wednesday, the Ministry of Interior in a tweet said, “As the chairman of the Civil Defence, Correctional, Fire and Immigration Services Board (CDCFIB), the minister, @BTOofficial, decorated the three new deputy commandants general of the @official_NSCDC today.”

Over a decade ago, Mr Obafaiye became popular when he said, “My oga at the top” in an interview with Channels TV.
Asked about the website of the NSCDC, Mr Obafaiye said, “Hmmm, the website is, excuse me, my Oga at the top knows the website.” He again cleared his throat and said: “My Oga at the top is working on the website, and I don’t have them”.

The phrase went viral and became a major slogan in Nigerian social media space.
