In its bid to harness the creative capacity of young Nigerians, the African Democratic Congress, ADC, has offered entertainment stars, Innocent Idibia popularly known as TuBaba, DJ Switch, Omotola Jelade-Ekeinde, and soccer star, Ahmed Musa free tickets to run for any elective office of their choice in the 2023 general elections.

 

National chairman of the party, Ralph Okey Nwosu made the pledge while receiving a certificate of endorsement of the party as “the one-party for Nigerian youths and women,” in the next election cycle.

Advancing reason for the choice of the celebrities to run on the platform of the party, Mr. Nwosu noted that entertainment stars have given back to the country more than today’s elected politicians.

He added that the stars can vie for governorship, Senatorial or even the highest office in the land on the ADC platform provided they meet the requirements stipulated in the 1999 constitution (as amended) as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC guidelines.

Meanwhile, Obadiah Mailafia, the former presidential candidate of the ADC in the 2019 presidential election, revealed the people sponsoring bandits. He alleged that many of the bandits terrorising the country were sponsored by the same people who wanted former president, Goodluck Jonathan, out of power at all cost.

The ex-CBN deputy governor made the claim during an interview on Thursday, February 25. Mailafia who did not provide any proof said he was also convinced that some foreign powers were behind the bandits. Speaking further, Mailafia claims that those powerful individuals intended to deploy the bandits for war if Jonathan did not concede defeat during the 2015 presidential election.
