Dancehall singer Terry G has expressed his intention to run for governor and deputy governor of Benue state.


The singer became the latest celebrity to share a campaign banner on Instagram ahead of the 2019 election.

His banner, since it surfaced on Thursday, is fast becoming a butt of jokes on social media.

Alongside the post was a caption which said: “My people, the time is now. Power belongs to the youths, say no to old cargo. Vote Terry G for governor/deputy of Benue state. I will make you proud. When I say legalise you say ginjah.”


No one can say for sure how serious the singer born Gabrial Oche Amanyi is about his political ambition.

On the banner, he however promised “good road, water stability, power stability,” stating that “everything will be fair and legalised”.

“But If I don’t win, there will be [a] problem,” he added.


Actor Yul Edochie and singer Kingsley ‘Kcee’ Okonkwo have only recently voiced their intentions to contest the Anambra governorship election holding on November 19.


The former was the first to make a public declaration of his ambition while the latter, also on Thursday, made his announcement via a campaign banner that spelled Anambra as “Anambara”.
