ICYMI: “Obasanjo will never be my friend; he’s part of Nigeria’s problems ” – Eedris Abdulkareem
Veteran rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem has said that former President Olusegun Obasanjo contributed to the challenges now bedevilling the nation and therefore could never be his friend.
The ‘Jaga Jaga’ crooner stated this while speaking on his relationship with the former president, as reported by Daily Post.
Eedris said that while in prison, the ex-president promised to transform the country but failed to do so in his eight-year rule afterward.
“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,” he said.
He lamented that the youths that should change the country were busy watching reality shows and playing sports bet.
Eedris encourage the youths to get involved in politics to cause change and ensure to register to vote in 2023.
