Veteran Hollywood actress, Ireti Doyle, has joined the throngs of Nigerians that have hailed Davido for his effervescence in politics as he supports his uncle for the Osun Gubernatorial election.
According to her, just discussing politics without taking an action would not make any difference, but throwing yourself in and being wholly involved is the way to go.
On her Instagram page, she wrote:
Who he’s campaigning for and why is immaterial and beside the point. The way i see it, if a quarter of us got involved and pursued our political preferences with as much passion, single-mindedness, loyalty, doggedness and “we die here” fervour that @davidoofficial has displayed and sustained over the last several days, it’s safe to say that the last 2 decades probably wouldn’t have gone down the way they have and we probably wouldn’t be in the current socio-political situation we are in.
It doesn’t matter how cerebral or articulate you are; back seat driving and arm chair political analysis don’t change a thing. Everyone is analysing what A, B, C and D are doing, the real question is what are you doing? How are you getting involved? What is your political preference and how are you ensuring that you are effectively represented?
Alas, classic Nigerianese, you no go do, person wey gree do will be damned for doing..Na so!
DavidO has found his “why”. I am PVC ready currently on the look out for my “why”. A candidate who’s politics I agree with, who I feel I can trust.
