Bimbo reportedly suggested that anyone interested in serving in government should come up because the nation is in critical need while making an appearance on TVC’s “Your View.”

Everyone has the right to cast a ballot, thus the actress expressed her outrage at how some Nigerians are intimidating celebrities who are not supporting their preferred candidate.

Below are her exact words.

I believe that those with anything to offer the nation should go forward. Nigeria has many needs, thus anyone interested in serving in the government must act. Normally I don’t discuss my politics or my beliefs on social media, but because of the way people are bullying others, I stated no we wouldn’t be bullied. I’ve been with the PCC and am working for Asiwaju.

Every Nigerian has the right to make a decision; even if mine differs from yours, the fact that we are both Nigerians remains the same. First and foremost, Asiwaju developed talents; he seeks out people with skills and places them in positions of authority. Take a look at his cabinet from when he was governor; names such as Wale Edun, Fashola, and Osinbajo are now commonly used.

These are the young names that are currently being used in politics, and they were all found by Asiwaju, which is what we have observed. One of the reasons you don’t need to know him to obtain support is that he has helped so many individuals in our profession.

Asiwaju brought Mojola into Nigeria and took care of all the expenses when we lost Mojola and she was out of the country. He doesn’t know any of the actors, but he has helped so many of them. He provided assistance and developed abilities, and I am confident that when he visits and meets the team members, we will be enthusiastic about the changes that will take place in this nation. I am aware of his vision for Nigeria, which is important to me. Going forward, anyone who does not share this vision should not attempt to serve.
