Basketmouth Says He Never Campaigned
For Buhari Or Any Other Politician For
That Matter

Popular Nigerian Comedian,
Basketmouth has taken some time out
to write a somewhat long epistle as to
his political stand. He boldly revealed
that he never campained for Buhari or
anyone. Read his post below:
I usually try not to pay attention to
comments from people that assume
stuff or those who judge others based
on perceptions. However I have also
come to agree that when lies are said
often enough, they begin to sound like
truths. So I think it’s best I use this
medium to clear the issue of
“campaigns” and “support” now.
While many of my colleagues, friends
and family members campaigned for
the PDP , APC and various candidates
during the last elections (and I cannot
emphasize enough that it is their
RIGHT to do so), I never campaigned
for Buhari or any other politician.
ALL those saying that I did should do
everything within their power to
“THINK”. I know thinking can be a
very difficult task for some but trust
me, it can be a painless and
enlightening process. THINK of when I
ever “CAMPAIGNED” for BUHARI !!..
Indeed I personally HOPED that he
would win the election and perhaps
that was evident in my “body
language” and I am happy he won.
But I did not campaign for him.
Nigeria was in a bad place by the end
of the last administration and it was
only a matter of time before we would
have suffered the plights of Brazil and
Venezuela. Truth of the matter is that
I would have voted ANYONE that could
speak 2 words of English against GEJ
and that’s strictly based on the
amount of greed and selfishness we
witnessed from members of his
administration in the 6 years that he
sat on the rock. They put us in this
Septic tank we are in right
now…..well, that and the oil price
downfall amongst other things.
I have said it numerous times that I
am not a politician hence I try not to
dabble in politics. However I think a
few people interpret crying out against
injustice by the one as campaign for
the other. When the Late FELA KUTI
and BOB MARLEY cried out against
the injustices in their days, were they
being partisan? Of course not. They
were just being HUMAN!
I am forever grateful to God for
blessing me with a flourishing career,
a beautiful family, food on my table
and small change in my pocket.
However I see too many people
everyday who have not been so lucky
to travel and see the way things are
outside Nigeria/Africa. I have seen
how GOVERNMENT can influence and
affect the lives of the downtrodden
positively. I am still patient, praying
and hoping that PMB can turn
Nigeria ’s economy around and help
strengthen Nigeria ’s social justice
system. Not so I can cheer him and be
vindicated that I was right and some
were wrong, but so my friends, family
members and well-wishers who
haven’t been favored as others can
have renewed hope in our country
Nigeria and the brotherhood we have
enjoyed in this generation. Even the
United States went through a tough
recession in 2008 and with some
patience they have been able to turn
that around.
So long story short, did I campaign for
PMB? NO! Do I support and PRAY that
his administration should succeed and
improve the life of the common man,
increase security, food, jobs,
infrastructure, quality of education,
healthcare and every other area that
will make Nigerians proud wherever
they may find themselves? YES!!
On the other hand, should he and his
party fail, we are all free to cast our
votes for the next man come 2019 and
I shall be exercising that right. No
need for quarrel.
