Another Entertainer in Politics! Actor Jim Iyke Joins Young Democratic Party



Jim IykeNollywood actor Jim Iyke has joined a number of his colleagues by entering political world in Nigeria.

According to Daily Independent, Jim Iyke recently joined the newly registered Young Democratic Party as its Director General in the Diaspora.Talking to the magazine, Jim Iyke explains that he is not joining politics for the money (or a political post) but for the change that he can bring to the country.

The newspaper quotes Jim Iyke as saying:

We just want to say enough is enough. It is time power and our policies shift hands to fresher minds, to stronger fortes, to people that are ready to move with the momentum of time, tide and changes. But it cannot be conceivable if you are saddled in that position for over two decades? How can you grow? How can you go with the tide of time? Biologically too, time will catch up with you because you are growing old in that position. Look at advanced countries of the world, and take a close look at people that have moved forward, these are people who have put things in place so that changes will be constant. Refreshment of minds, ideas, psychology, idiosyncrasies will be constant except for Nigeria. The same circle of people that governed us 20 years ago are the same people who are still ruling us, what are they still doing there? So many of them are in their 80s, grandfathers by all rights! Are they not tired? Suffering and smiling has become our motto, our slogan. There are black men of strong background and strong voice abroad. We have them everywhere. There is a rippling effect, that whatsoever resonates here touches the whole world. This is the strongest economy, the most populous black nation in the world. You cannot say that what we are doing concerns Nigerians alone. It concerns Africa, in the weight of what we are doing, we are carrying everybody along. We are not saying that this is a revolution or we are here to manipulate anybody, no. It is an open and closed book. This change may not happen in this era but it is a right step in the right direction at least there is a voice which hitherto was none existence. There is a platform where you can air your grievances. It is a truthful and open platform.

    The guys go into politics while the women go into prostitution. Nollywood does not pay because they make crappy movies, so there you go.

    What a bunch of shit bags that have failed. Politics is the end game for thieves in Nigeria. Unfortunately, the mass will vote them in. They can only do this in Nigeria, as soon as they cross the shores of that country Nigeria, they realize, that they are all bunch of scorn bags. I see them here everyday

    I think we should give the young bloods a chance to rule dis country.its a risk buh let’s take it and c wat comes out of it,moreover we av taken lots of risk by giving our present nd past presidents d chance of ruling us.all we should do is support those who av taken it upon them slf to stand up nt minding their contemporaries,to mk a difference.jimy,I giv u a go ahead.
