Jide Kosoko Blasts Nigerian Youths, Says Buhari Govt Is Not Totally Bad
Nollywood thespian, Jide Kosoko, berates Nigerian youths condemning President Muhammadu Buhari when discussing his views about the current government.
The veteran actor said the Nigerian youths that are ‘going up and coming down’ do not know the right person who will solve the challenges of Nigeria. However, if they named the person, he would gladly follow.
Jide Kosoko was asked in a recent interview with Premium Time if he regretted campaigning for Buhari in 2015. He said;
“No, I can never. I will ask you and ask all the Nigerian youths going up and coming down, saying different things. Let them show us who to follow, do you know who will do well, do you know?”
“You don’t know, Professor Wole Soyinka was appointed the founding Corps Marshall of the FRSC, he ran away, he couldn’t stand it. So, tell me if you are able to confirm to me that Jide Kosoko is the best to govern us, then I will follow you. But nobody knows, we are all making trial and error.”
Jide Kosoko said he is disappointed in some of Buhari and his government’s actions, but his administration is not the cause of the current state of Nigeria. He added that the president is not corrupt.
“So many things are responsible for the situation we find ourselves. I can’t speak for the government but I can’t say Buhari (government) is totally bad. I’ve never said so, and I may not say so, but I am disappointed in some of his actions. I hate a situation where the APC government will keep reminding us of how bad things have been since PDP assumed power.”
“We are all aware of that, before you decided to come on board, deciding to assume power means you have a solution to the problems so that is my own concern. Buhari knows that discipline is his watchword, I wanted to believe him then, but he should know that in getting a corrupt-free society you would face quite a lot of antagonism.”
“It’s just like a dog eating bone and you want to collect the bone, it would be a tug of war. I believe him and personally, Buhari is not corrupt, but so many things are still going on. This means that prompt action must be taken to ensure that those things stop.”
