Nigerian international singer Nneka expressed her thoughts on President Goodluck Jonathan and his decision to postpone the general elections in Nigeria in an interview with CNN. The singer spoke her piece about the current political situation in Nigeria, the upcoming elections and president Goodluck Jonathan. According to her Goodluck Jonathan should have dealt with the issue of Boko Haram and insecurity in Nigeria before the elections that was scheduled to hold originally on February 14th 2015.
This what she had to say;
“He [Goodluck Jonathan] says he wants to tackle Boko Haram, obviously every Nigerian is asking why now, he could had done it a long time ago… I’m not good at the whole blaming game, I don’t want to blame anybody but I pray that he comes up with a good idea for us if he is an honest and genuine guy. But I know that Fela [Kuti] would definitely not be cool with him if he was here, Seun [Kuti] is not cool with him, I and many other socially conscious musicians who are very outspoken are not cool with him”
Nneka is known for her politically inclined songs and is very outspoken. She also said outspoken singers do not have a good relationship with the President.
