“I will soon participate as a contestant” – 2Baba Admits Interest in Nigerian Politics


2Face Idibia has finally admitted to having definite plans to run for a political office.

The Nigerian music legend said this on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, while speaking with journalists in Lagos.

2Baba said that he is keen on having a positive impact on the lives around him and would soon run for a political position.

He, however, neglected to mention the exact political office he is interested in or the political party he would be working with.

He said:

“Politics affects everything I do. So, I am definitely going to be interested in politics. I will soon participate as a contestant and speak the truth at all times.

“I hope and pray that good men will rise up and make a difference in this country, because we need more patriotic people in all aspects of life.”

2Face condemned the continuous clash between farmers and Fulani herdsmen clashes that have negatively impacted Benue state, which he hails from.

He said:

There is so much we’ve been saying about this crisis, but nothing much has come the way of the victims.

We just need more people to support and join hands to continue extending relief materials to affected people.

This is the most important thing we can now do; bring succour to the victims

This thing is going on for too long, repeating itself over and over. There has to be a solution, the victims are not goats they are humans and should be taken care of.

I feel terrible not because it also happened in Benue State, where I hail from, but because it is also happening almost throughout the federation.

It does not have to happen to someone you know before you speak up about it
