Three popular Nigerian celebrities have been given free political slots to run for any available elective position in the forthcoming 2023 election in Nigeria.
Nigerian singer, Innocent Idibia known as 2Baba, Award-winning Nollywood actress, Omojola Jalade-Ekeinde and Disc-Jockey, DJ Switch were offered free tickets by the African Democratic Congress (ADC) to run for any elective office in the next general election.
According to the party’s National Chairman, Ralph Okey Nwosu, the reason the celebrities were given these tickets was that Nigerian celebrities give back to the society more than those in power.
He said, ADC as a party has the interest of Nigerian women and youths in mind.
The chairman explained that if the three celebrities meet up with the requirements, they would be free to contest under the party’s umbrella for any elective position in the 2023 election.
