Nollywood actor Kunle Afod has shared his thoughts on bad leadership as Nigerians celebrate Independence Day.
The actor in an Instagram post on Friday urged Nigerian leaders to come together and find a solution to the issues affecting the country.
“Happy independence day. Oct 1st, 1960 was the historical day Hmmmm. Things are not getting better in any sector. Do we need to be happy? What are we really celebrating?
“Our elected leaders should come together to take away the shame they have brought on our dear and beloved country. I pray for Nigeria I wish Nigeria well,” he wrote.
In another post, afrobeat singer Seun Kuti lamented that the Independence day of the nation is nothing to celebrate, stating that Nigeria is near collapse as the high level of hunger, insecurity and unemployment is cause for worry.
“It is fitting to bring you all warm solidarity greetings as we celebrate the 61st anniversary of our dear nation! Even though there is nothing to celebrate, owing to the near-collapse in the state of our dear nation.
“With the worrisome level of hunger, insecurity, high rate of unemployment, and wanton looting, the celebration of today’s anniversary calls for a sober reflection and the need to re-organise ourselves to get involved in the democratic process with the view to set the nation on the road to recovery,” he wrote.
