The incessant killings and abduction in the nation have moved some popular Nigerian celebrities to speak out.
King of R n B, Banky W via his social media page lamented that the daily sad news happening in Nigeria makes him depressed and drained.
Banky wrote; ‘So much bad news in Nigeria every day… we’ve become numb to it. If it’s not murder and kidnapping, it’s unrest and people unfit for office calling the shots. It’s like we are in an abusive relationship with the country we love. It’s exhausting. It’s draining. It’s depressing.’
Former Big Brother Naija housemate, Tacha also took to her twitter handle to decry the heightened security crises in the country.
Taking to her Twitter handle, Tacha wrote, ‘‘It’s sickening to be a Nigerian!! God is even tired for constantly getting called upon. Which way NAIJA?! No way?’ The body language and non-chancy of this administration says it all, they don’t RATE US, they don’t care about US. It’s just a clear master slave relationship. We already know our president is a big MAN! he will address us on Oct 1st. 2021.”
For celebrities like Jmartins and Reekado Banks, the insecurity situation in the country is becoming scary.
Reekado Banks wrote; ‘Nigeria is on the brink of a civil war & the politicians are doing everything to enable it because their schemes thrive in havoc & when there’s a divide. As citizens, who will suffer the most from this impending disaster, we must do everything within our power to champion peace.’
Jmartins via his instagram wrote; ”Jonathan Oh Jonathan.The freedom of speech we all enjoyed during your stay in office as president of Nigeria is no longer available, yes we never valued it then sir.
“The corruption your government was accused of then have now graduated with a double PhD in this prestigious government and yet they’ve kept a blind eye thinking that they will all go free? even if they leave government today? Nope never! There is no part of this country that’s not under attack, if not banditry, it’s kidnapping, or boko haram or killing of security officers, these things were never heard off before but now it is our every day living experience.
“Oh Jonathan i know you were called all sorts of names, those who betrayed you some of them are dead while many of them have no shame, they’re still busy jumping from one political party to another, the few others can not look at you in the face because they failed to learn from judas who betrayed his master. Please I have a question for you and in as much i recognise that you are not a perfect person sir, you could have also had some mistakes you made in times past but sir, can you forgive all those who betrayed you? and bless this country from your heart? I know you would say you’re not a pastor but you’re a Father and fathers blessings go a long way in helping his children succeed sir, please and please sir, do this for us all.”
