Innocent ‘2baba’ Idibia on Tuesday indicated his interest in vying for political office.
Speaking with journalists in Lagos, Idibia said he is keen on affecting lives positively and would soon pick up the challenge of a political position.
He, however, failed to say what office he was eyeing or what political platform he would pitch his tent with.
“Politics affects everything I do,” he said. “So, I am definitely going to be interested in politics. I will soon participate as a contestant and speak the truth at all times.
“I hope and pray that good men will rise up and make a difference in this country because we need more patriotic people in all aspects of life.”
The Benue-born artiste decried the incessant farmers/herdsmen clashes that have negatively impacted his state.
“There is so much we’ve been saying about this crisis, but nothing much has come the way of the victims,” he said.
“We just need more people to support and join hands to continue extending relief materials to affected people. This is the most important thing we can now do; bring succour to the victims.
“I feel terrible not because it also happened in Benue State, where I hail from, but because it is also happening almost throughout the federation. “It does not have to happen to someone you know before you speak up about it.”
In January 2017, 2baba announced a nationwide protest against the policies of the federal government.
After coming under intense pressure to shelve the demonstration, 2baba announced the cancellation.
He had said: “It has become clear that the One Voice protest scheduled to hold in Lagos and Abuja is under serious threat of hijack by those whose interest do not align with our ideals.
“The point I intend making is not worth the life of any Nigerian. It is motivated by the need to demand a better deal for the ordinary Nigerian.”
