Are Nigerian Entertainers Really Going Into Politics To Chop Money?


Nollywood actress Clarion Chukwurah had some very big words to spill on the huge number of Nigerian celebrities campaigning for political positions this year. She was very candid in her response to an interview question with Punch:

“The motive of those who are embracing partisan politics is purely monetary. Let us call a spade a spade. If you tell me that you want to go into politics to serve the people, I would want to look at your record first.
I want to see what you have done to better the lives of the people in your immediate community. How many boreholes have you sunk in the community? How many hours of community service have you given for free over the last four or five years? How well are you known as somebody who yearns for improvement in social development?”

Are our celebs really going to chop money?
