2023 Election: Nigerian Youths Are Not Ready For Politics — Eedris Abdulkareem-Crystal News

Despite growing evidence of youth activism and mobilization, veteran rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem says Nigerian youths are not ready for politics.

The controversial rapper stated this during an interview with Daily Post. He further took a swipe on Nigerian leaders, emhasized that former President Olusegun Obasanjo is part of the problem of Nigeria.

Speaking on Nigerian youths pertaking in the 2023 election, Eedris claimed that Nigerian youths are not ready for politics because they are busy watching Big Brother Naija and playing ‘kalukalu’.

”They should get their PVC even though their votes would not count.”

The ‘Jaga Jaga’ crooner also accused Nigerian entertainers of focusing on irrelevant things and not using their music to enlighten the public.

”The young entertainers are busy singing about booty, drugs and alcohol when they are supposed to use their music to bring and enlighten people. I’m sure if the young guys in music are agitating like we are, things would have changed.”

When asked about his relationship with Obasanjo, Eedris said, “Obasanjo will never be my friend, I worked with him because there was this tsunami in America and we were part of the fundraising program sponsored to raise money for Nigerians out there.

”Obasanjo is part of the problem of this country. When he was in prison, he promised to do a lot of things if he became the President, but he never did. It is really sad, but we can never be friends because he’s part of the problem of this country.

”Our leaders, before getting into office might have the intention to do good things but when they get to power, they change. I don’t know if it is a curse. But Yaradua did work but his term was cut short, sadly. ”

Speaking on the President Buhari’s administration, Eedris lamented that Buhari has done nothing but to dash the hopes of Nigerians and taken Nigeria back to where it was 20 years ago.

“The APC government promised us to change, but Nigerians are in chains, they’ve made everybody become slaves. It’s a sad situation.

“Buhari just wanted to be a president and doesn’t have anything to offer. He just wanted to rule and was not prepared. He does not have what it takes to govern this country. It’s the truth, but a sad story.

“This is the worst government Nigeria has ever experienced. He took us back 20 years.”

The Jagajaga crooner said “Nigeria is in a sad situation; there’s no hope until we have a change of government and leaders who are ready to give us basic amenities.

“We have a President that does not believe in the youths. He once said Nigerian youths are lazy. We are in deep sh*t in this country and there’s no hope as most companies have left Nigeria for Ghana,”.

Maria And Pere Identified As BBNaija WildCards-Crystal News

Maria and Pere have been revealed as the two wildcards in the Big Brother Naija season 6

Crystal News recalls that on Sunday, shortly after the female housemates were introduced, Ebuka announced that there are two wildcards among the twenty-two housemates.

Ebuka then announced that the wildcards will be revealed to the viewers today by 3 pm in a special diary session.

Today, Thursday, July 29 in the diary session, it was revealed that Maria and Pere are the wildcards.

According to Maria, she feels she’s doing a great job but does not feel comfortable lying about it.

She is a little bit sure that the housemates will not be able to figure her out.

Prior to the announcement on Sunday, Pere and Maria had thought there is only one wildcard and will have to wait till the Sunday night eviction to find out about the other person.

However, they both guessed each other when Big Brother asked if they could guess who the other wildcard is.

Big Brother had asked the housemates to bond for two weeks and find out who the wildcards were.

If the housemates had been able to identify who they were, the wildcards would have been automatically evicted on Sunday night.

On the other hand, failure to identify the wildcards means they will remain in the show, play for the money and have exclusive nomination privilege.

Who Are BBNaija Wildcards

Wildcard refers to a player or team that has not qualified for a competition but is allowed to take part, at the organizers’ discretion, after all the regular places have been taken.
