Iconic singer, 2Baba has revealed his intention to contest for political office. The singer who was once criticized for pulling out of a protest in demand of good governance, which he initiated, made this revelation in Lagos.
He spoke about his interest in politics and his plan to contest for a position soon but he held back the detail of the position he is interested in and the party under which he would be contesting. He said:
“Politics affects everything I do. So, I am definitely going to be interested in politics. I will soon participate as a contestant and speak the truth at all times.
I hope and pray that good men will rise up and make a difference in this country because we need more patriotic people in all aspects of life.”
The singer also addressed the herdsmen crisis ravaging his home state, Benue State. He called on people to continue to send relief materials to the state, to help and support the affected communities. He said:
“There is so much we’ve been saying about this crisis, but nothing much has come the way of the victims.
We just need more people to support and join hands to continue extending relief materials to affected people.
This is the most important thing we can now do; bring succour to the victims.
This thing is going on for too long, repeating itself over and over. There has to be a solution, the victims are not goats, they are humans and should be taken care of.
I feel terrible not because it also happened in Benue State, where I hail from, but because it is also happening almost throughout the federation.
It does not have to happen to someone you know before you speak up about it.”
