    Naija News reports he made his views known in a series of Tweets via the micro-blogging site, Twitter on Tuesday.

    According to him, “Fixing Nigeria is more important to me now than any money any politician has to offer. If Nigeria becomes safe and economically stable, people like me will make money from safely using our talent across the country… like we used to. #letsfixNigeria

    “Sorry if I don’t notice when you drag or troll me on social media, due to my political views. I’m currently focusing my attention on who becomes the next president. I’ll get back to you after the election. Pls bear with me #ndiara #letsfixNigeria.”(sic)

    He added that though he is a comedian, there is nothing funny about the situation in Nigeria.

    In his words, “Because I’m an actor, some people want me to act like all is well with Nigeria. I’m a comedian but there is nothing funny about the situation in the country.”
