The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday, February 7, announced the postponement of the 2015 General Elections for six weeks, and the Nigerian superstar has some strong words for the action.
2face Idibia has spoken out about the postponement of the general elections.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Saturday, February 7, announced the postponement of the 2015 General Elections for six weeks, and the star has expressed his disappointment with the decision.
2face bared his mind on the matter during an interview with Pulse on Wednesday, February 11.
“You know one thing about life and Nigeria; the people have sat down and done nothing for so long. And that’s the reason why you see many of these things happening.
“Because if you are somewhere and you believe that the people cannot do anything, then you’ll always do things with impunity, you don’t care. You already have the mind-set that the people cannot do anything.
“But if the people really stand up this time around, go out, vote, and make sure they monitor their vote, in a non-violent manner, and come out, and really start talking. We need brave people now to come out and start talking.
2face further pointed fingers at the National Assembly, citing their refusal to address issues as a contributing factor for the state of things.
“All these things that are happening, the National Assembly and the Senate are so quiet. They are supposed to be the ones making sure that everything goes right. It’s just sad, it’s just crazy.
“It’s shameful, we are turning into a laughing stock. It’s as if we don’t have any brain, it’s as if we are just moving blindly. The citizens need to step up. We need to step up in a non-violent way.
2face Idibia is currently leading a campaign, ‘Vote Not Fight’, which aims to sensitize the public on maintaining peace during the elections.
