The recent bastardization of the #NotTooYoungToRun campaign by entertainers is sad – Shakar El

The past week witnessed an unexpected number of Nigerian entertainers declaring their intention to run for political office.

This comes after the Nigerian senate passed the #NotTooYoungToRun Bill and many pundits simply feels most of these entertainers are taking it for granted. Singer, Shakar El shared his candid thoughts below.


I wanted to write about the recent bastardization of The Not too young to Run Campaign by my fellow entertainers but I never chop yet so no energy. Leadership is a serious matter and we must not joke with it.

I don’t know how serious Yul Edochie and Kcee are about running for office but at least they are from Anambra state and the election is in few months so maybe they are not joking but I don’t know if they have much time to campaign. It is the fundamental rights of all of us to Run for an office or even to Run from an office but we must not make a Joke out of it since we are yet to get Leadership Right in Nigeria.

For the Youths to be taken serious, we must act serious and respect ourselves,we all can’t be part time comedians.. I Think Terry G the Akpako Master should be arrested for planning to Run for Governor and Deputy Governor at the same time because it is against our current 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Let’s stop making fun of our failed system, we are no more the leaders of Tomorrow, we are leaders of the Today but we are joking with it and people need to wake up. What we actually need is Transparent and God Fearing leaders irrespective of age or tribe, corruption knows no Age! If you are struggling to handle Fame then Dont think you can joke with a seat of power… God bless Nigeria..
