Banky W, popular singer cum actor and husband of Nollywood’s sweetheart, Adesua Etomi,has warned Nigerians against taking sides in heated arguments over political leaders in the country.
Banky W, writing on his Twitter page, said all politicians are after their self interest, therefore none should be sided with.
This is coming after operatives of the Department of State Services, DSS, blocked the entrance of the National Assembly, preventing lawmakers from gaining access to the chambers.
This led to the dismissal of the Director-General of the Department of State Services, Lawal Daura.
According to Banky W, politicians in the country were playing with Nigeria’s destiny, adding that they do not have the interest of Nigerians at heart. He therefore called on citizens to look for a new way forward.
He wrote: “Politicians are playing musical chairs with our country’s destiny. Instead of us coming together and cancelling all of them, some of us are picking sides, fighting on their behalf and falsely accusing ourselves. News flash: They’re all out for self-interest. We need an entirely new path.
“It’s a chess game between two sides.. aren’t we tired of being pawns yet? No? We are just going to sit here and fight/falsely accuse ourselves, on behalf of leaders on both sides of the aisle, most of whom have clearly shown that we are the ones they care least about?
“Cancel all of em. It’s a chess game, and we are the pawns. It’s a damn comedy show, and the joke is on us. It has always been.
“Those of us that have registered to vote for 2019, vote with your conscience. But it isn’t just about 2019. It’s about building a new viable option going forward. Aren’t we sick of all of them already? Haven’t they all had enough chances to do and be better?
“I’m hoping to work with whoever wants to build something new. We have the numbers to do it. But we are busy playing their game and picking sides. We are no better than the generations that got us in this mess.”
