Actor Charles Okocha, popularly known as Igwe 2pac, took a lot of people by surprise during the week when he declared via a video recording that he would be contesting the highest office in the land, the Presidency. His fans thought that he had keyed into the ‘Not-Too-Young-to-Run’ movement and expressed their support for him.
However, in a chat with Sunday Scoop, Okocha stated that his action was meant to gauge the reaction of the people. He said, “I was just kidding around with the video skit when I said I wanted to become the president and that I would lead with swag. I actually have no intention to become president, at least for now. There were a lot of interesting reactions when the video was released and I’m still observing what people are saying about it. If a lot of people call on me to run for president, then I would have no choice but to do that.”
Asked if he has what it takes to lead a country like Nigeria, Okocha said, “Of course. All it takes is integrity and a genuine willingness to serve. We all know the areas that we need change in this country and if those things are honestly tackled, things would be much better. Some of us travel out of this country and we see how well things are going in other climes. I really want to see Nigeria becomes great again and I wouldn’t shy away from contributing my quota.”
Responding to insinuations that his music career is comatose at the moment, Igwe 2pac stated, “That is very far from the truth. I recently released a new song and it was well received. However, because of my movie career, I am not able to devote as much time to my music. I have big plans and very soon, you would hear about them.”
