Celebrities Speak About Current Situation Of The Economy
Popular Nigeria singer J-Martins has taken to the internet to complain about the present economy of Nigeria and its effect on his financial status. The singer said that the way things are in the country is tiresome for everybody. From a lack of light to endless fuel queues and so on.
According to him, he is willing to wait for the government to perform on agenda but the waiting cannot be endless; a timeline is needed. He reviewed that he has spent almost 9 times his planned budget for 3 months in 2 weeks, with no corresponding increase in income.
See what he has to say below:
“Ladies & gentlemen of the Federal Republic, complaining about the present situation of things in the country doesn’t make one anti-Buhari/APC or pro-GEJ/PDP.
For all you partisan voltrons, not everyone is into your hypocrisy filled pontificators of party ideology, because in all honesty, you people have none.
Many of us just want light, fuel, friendly business clime, better health, agriculture & educational infrastructures, and a better country, generally.
I’m willing to give the government time to correct things, but the government has to give me a timeline, the wait cannot be endless. Kindly give us a timetable. We have seen many that never came to fruition, but just give us schedule to work with please.
I’ve spent almost 9 times my planned budget for 3 months in 2 weeks, with no corresponding increase in income.
If I’m expected to act like its absolutely normal and keep mum for fear of being branded anti-Buhari, or a wailer. Hell NO!, I won’t.”
J Martins is not the only star to cry out about the current state of things. Nollywood actress Omotola Jalade Ekeinde also spoke out on how difficult things have become. On April 1, 2016, Omotala took to her twitter handle #dontpushme, as she is aired her frustration on the state of things in Nigeria.
Here is what she had to say:
Government doesn’t live up to its promises and there is no electricity while we pay our due taxes.
In developed countries you’re boldly asked for taxes because you’re well taken care of educationally, health, good roads, electricity and all. In Africa, Government use Developed Country’s Laws but lack the intelligence and Will to provide same services for the citizens.
