Eedris Abdulkareem in an interview with Channels TV’s Sunrise tv show yesterday, came out to say that his upcoming album, G2G is about endorsing the president, Goodluck Jonathan, and asking Nigerians to stop attacking the President and his administration.
He also added that he believes, GEJ has done well for Nigeria, and will continue to do so. See the full script of what he said:
“Since I was born a Nigerian growing up, I have always known that propaganda is the issue and they just share the money up and down. This Lagos-Ibadan expressway has been there for fifteen years by the former Minister of Works, Baba Tony Anenih and they didn’t do anything .Goodluck is doing that road. That is the Federal government road, He is working on it. Our airport has been reformed. Thirdly our agricultural sector, farmers don’t get their fertilizer directly but today they get their fertilizer, fertilizer is now a big business. So it is important we say all these things because most people don’t know. We all know that the insecurity is propaganda. “
“I was was the first person that came out in the rally when Pres. Goodluck Jonathan increased the fuel price at Ojota. I have never seen Goodluck before but what I know is going on with that guy is a big propaganda and they should leave him alone let him work. When I sang jagajaga, did anybody pay me? If opposition paid me, by now I go don get plenty billions. So its simple, the facts must be told. When I sang Nigeria jagajaga, it was 12 years ago and this is 12 years later, so why is everybody blaming the poor guy? because he is from Niger Delta or because the presidency has left the north?” he said.
