The rate at which nigerian celebrities are veering into politics and fighting for the seat of power is becoming quite alarming. It has been confirmed that award winning TV and Radio broadcaster, Dayo ‘D1’ Adeneye, is going for Ogun State House of Assembly, Odogbolu Constituency under APC in the 2015 elections, while singer Muma Gee is going for House of Reps, Abua/Odua and Ahoada East LGA, Rivers State under PDP.
Dayo D1 Adeneye recently released a press statement on the main reasons he took up such decision.
Part of the release reads; “History was made last weekend as one of Nigeria’s renowned entertainment guru and media baron, Otunba Adedayo Olumide Adeneye (D-One) joined the political race on a mission to rescue and rebuild the future of his people at Odogbolu Constituency of Ogun state, South West Nigeria.
The Entertainment guru and co-founder of Primetime Entertainment who is vying to be a member of the Ogun state House of Assembly under APC has been in consultations with various interest groups in his Odogbolu constituency before now.
Otunba Dayo Adeneye who has been frequently summoned by his people at the Odogbolu constituency of Ogun state finally succumbed to the yearnings of thousands of young and old people in the constituency who want him to bring forth his innovative leadership to the development of his people in Ogun state.
D-One who is coming into politics with an over two decade career which cuts across education, broadcasting and business management is seen as one of the biggest assets for the much desired “Change” that has become the lead philosophy of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party in Ogun state and the entire country.
Acceding to the demand of his people last weekend during a meeting with leaders of thought and youth in Odogbolu constituency of Ogun state, D-One said “The invitation is an invitation to service and I am quite humbled to bring back home the entire knowledge I have garnered around the world, to change and lead. To whom much is given, much is equally expected and because my root is here I am ready to sacrifice my all for service”.
As the list continues to add up, entertainment loving Nigerians can’t help but fold hands in akimbo with heads bowed low as the impact of those crossing over to politics would be felt heavily in all the genres of entertainment industry during the forthcoming festive period.tweet Follow @@metrolens1
