few Nigerian entertainers such as Banky W & Bovi have been outspoken about the upcoming General Elections next year, especially APC’s pick to run as vice president.

Comedian Bovi is of the opinion that APC presidential candidate should be running as Governor Babatunde Fashola‘s number 2, not the other way round, as earlier he was rumoured to be the pick for VP.

Banky W on the other hand felt that tribe & religion should not be a factor with picking a candidate. It has been widely rumoured that Buhari couldn’t pick Fashola to be his running mate because they are both muslims.

See what they had to say after the jump

He said, “Who cares if Fashola is a muslim? Didn’t we vote him into power in Lagos? Did the fact that he’s muslim affect the way he lead the state?”
He went on to add in a series of tweets,

I don’t care about my leader’s tribe, religion, or whatever jargon they keep feeding us. Zoning. Religion-ing. It’s all crap. Some of my mentors, clients, business partners, colleagues are from different tribes and religions than mine. What difference does it make? I don’t choose who to do business with based on if they’re from my village. I don’t choose who to associate with based on their religion. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired of all this. Tribe… Religion… these are just tools people use to divide us. And then we wonder why we’re in the same position decades later. Abiola won the election (in a LAND SLIDE) on a muslim-muslim ticket. Wasn’t that the same country? It didn’t matter then. Why does it now? They brainwash us into thinking these things matter… and then we wonder why we’re still here facing the same problems as a nation. We wonder why people still kill each other in places like Jos… differences in tribe, religion… like that means anything. When it comes to Political power/leaders, they trick us to believe that religion/tribe matters. So they can divide & control us. Same country voted Abiola, on a muslim-muslim ticket, in a LANDSLIDE. Religion didn’t matter then. Tribe didn’t matter then. Now all of a sudden, religion and tribe are controlling our every decision. We’ve fallen so far from what we used to be.

I agree completely with Banky.

Bovi @officialBovi
Ideally, based on current form and skills, Buhari should be Fashola's number 2. Not the other way round. Jus keeping it real

do you agree with Bovi?

Fasola can still serve in his cabinet as a minister. They have to do this to shut up the opponents from using religion against them.
