Perhaps for this reason, a number of celebrities do not like to speak against the people in power, so that it would not affect their brand as well as their friendships with politicians.
However, a few stars are bold enough to speak up. Nollywood veteran, Georgina Onuoha, has taken to her Instagram page to call on Nigerians to be wiser when it’s time to vote for a president.
She posted a video of the late Gen. Sani Abacha giving his speech when he took over the government as she reminded Nigerians what dictatorship looks like.
A part of her caption reads:
“I am stunned to see Nigerians celebrating Atiku as if he is a test tube baby!! a man who served as a Vice President and was prohibited by the then former president Obasanjo from running for presidency because Atiku was wanted for Fraud by the UN according to Obasanjo. Yet, I see Nigerians dancing and welcoming Atiku. It is a shame.
“Until we begin to learn from our history.. we will continue to suffer collectively as a people and nation.
“Wake up Nigeria.. Reject all these visionless rouges willing to kill because of power and their personal game and not the interest of the people or nation. Stop voting for dead old men. We have young and vibrant candidates to move our nation forward in this 21st century.
“Wake up Nigerians. Vote for your future and not for your religion, tribe and stomach. We can do better as a nation. The power lies in our hands as youth to change this downward trajectory of our nation.” You may also like to read; Olujonwon finally meets his father’s ‘political opponent’, Buhari inside Aso Rock (photos)
