Charly boy claim almost all those who contested in the last presidential election aside the PDP and APC candidates, were simply glowns who were paid to simply make alot of noise, drama and distractions.
The entertainer said only few months after the elections, almost all the major players who talked about how terrible the country is and promised Nigerians they are determined to fix the problems if elected president, seem to have gone underground not giving a hoot about what is going on in the country. Some commitment he said .
Charly Boy whose real name is charles Oputa believes many of the contestants were simply keen on accessing campaign funds and raising money from unsuspecting donors to enrich their businesses and pockets.
How true is his observation?
In Lagos Mr Jimi Agbaje contested for the governorship elections including the just concluded 2019 race. As soon as he realised he lost, he called the winner, congratulated him and has not made any public statements thereafter. Not even when a story building at the Lagos island collasped killing several people including children.
Agbaje known more for his “everybody loves Jimi Agbaje” campaign tune, never showed up to condole with the same people he sought their mandate to elect him as governor.
Who then can we believe in? Who is real and who actually cares about developing this country? Are we all critics only because we have not gotten the oppurtunitry to access the cookie jar? Or are we simply motivated by malice and jealousy .
Do we dance naked in the market place not because we are sincerely committed to bringing attention to the filthy state of the market but because we need attention to for ourselves.
How do we then know who truly cares for this country? How do we know who to follow and who to trust? None of those who sought public office and lost went back home poorer. Which way Nigeria? Charly Boy caalled them scam artists i cannot help but agree with him on this.
