Nigerian singer, Majek Fashek could likely compete with President Muhammadu Buhari, Atiku Abubakar and others in the forthcoming presidential election.
Since his return to the Nigerian music space, veteran reggae music maestro, Majekodunmi Fasheke, popularly known as ‘Majek Fashek’, seems to be hell bent on reclaiming his place as the godfather on the music scene.
Little wonder in a recent exclusive chat with Showtime, he boldly condemned Buhari’s government, boasting that he would be a better president come 2019 when he vies for the presidential seat.
I will do better than our current people in government; the Nigerian situation is very bad, the people are suffering, companies are folding up; people are living like slaves in Nigeria because the government has failed us.
Nigerian children should be taken care of, not just by their parents but by the government because they are the leaders of tomorrow. Education, healthcare and food should be a priority.
If government will concentrate on that within a year or six months, there will be transformation”, he said. Speaking further, he lamented the deplorable socio-economic condition of the nation.
“Nigerians are dying of hunger, our girls are on the streets hustling, most girls are turning to prostitution, and this is no joke.
If your family member is not a senator, house of reps member, governor or president then you are facing the music. People are suffering, including musicians and it is not good.
So, if the current people there don’t know what they are doing I will be there soonest and put the youth and right people in place to handle situations because no Nigerian should be dying in Libya.”
For those who may be quick to say he is not fit to steer the presidential ship of the nation, he has answers for them.
“Some may want to say I’m not mentally okay, but I’m very okay and medically fit, with a good message for Nigerians both in my music and intentions.
