I turned down many political offers – actor Nkem Owoh
Veteran Nollywood actor, Nkem Owoh, has revealed that he turned down offers to enter politics because he did not want to contract the illness afflicting Nigeria’s political system.
In an interview with Midweek Entertainment, Owoh revealed this.
He continued by saying that he is avoiding politics because he enjoys utilizing his charisma to make people smile.
When discussing the next election, he said;
I will just go and vote. I have tried to reject Nigerian politics in its entirety even though I know there are still some good people inside the polity, but the system is like a diseased mesh.
People have tried to draw me into politics but I know that if I put my head into it, I will be infected with the disease and I don’t want it.
So, I prefer to stay at the flank. The country will become better when we have reasonable leadership in all directions. And soon, it is going to come because I can see the rumples.
My neck cannot carry politics. The thing is, I like where I can smile; you see that I am smiling and you are smiling. Also, I travel and move out alone as I am not afraid of anything. If I were to be in politics, I would have probably gotten to the height where I would be afraid and I don’t want to be afraid.
