I am very much attached to acting- Actor, Jide Kosoko speaks on venturing into politics
By Patricia Uyeh,
Veteran actor, Prince Jide Kosoko has revealed his thoughts on politics and if it’s a sphere he would like to play in.
In a recent interview, the actor spoke on his passion for acting, the death of three wives, the struggle for power in the movie industry and more.
He opened up while speaking to Olusola Ricketts.
Speaking on his plan to go into politics, he said:
“At first, I planned to venture into politics. But I must be sincere with you; I am so attached to my profession. My profession doesn’t really want rivalry and politics will give it a good rivalry.
“I still belong to a political party, which is the All Progressives Congress, and I’ve contributed my bit. But I have refused to seek public office through an election. If I am given an opportunity to serve in any capacity, I may take it, but I love what I do, which is acting.
“We have been able to identify some serious-minded people and we plan to give them support. It is not possible for everyone to be in government. If you think you must be there before things work out, the country will still be in problems. All I can say is for us to give good advice to those who are there. By that, you would have contributed positively to the country in a way.”
