Jide Kosoko: I don’t regret campaigning for President Buhari

Veteran Nigerian actor, director and movie producer, Prince Jide Kosoko, says he never envisaged being a polygamist but it is the will of God for him.

Veteran Nollywood actor Jide Kosoko has stated that he does not regret campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015.

Kosoko disclosed this during an interview. He said that although he is disappointed in some of the actions of the president, he cannot say the president is responsible for all that is wrong in Nigeria.

According to him, Nigerians are using a trial-and-error process to choose their president.

Responding to the question that if he regrets campaigning for the President, Kosoko said: “No, I can never regret it. All Nigerian youths saying different things, let them show us who to follow, do you know who will do well, do you know?

“Professor Wole Soyinka was appointed the founding Corps Marshall of the FRSC, he ran away, he could not stand it. So, tell me if you are able to confirm to me that Jide Kosoko is the best to govern us, then I will follow you. But nobody knows, we are all making trial and error.”

The actor also disclosed that so many things are responsible for the situation in Nigeria.

He said: “I cannot speak for the government but I can’t say Buhari’s government is totally bad but I’m disappointed in some of his actions.

“Buhari knows that discipline is his watchword, I wanted to believe him then, but he should know that in getting a corrupt-free society you would face quite a lot of antagonism.

“I believe Buhari and personally, he is not corrupt, but so many things are still going on. This means that prompt action must be taken to ensure that those things stop in the country.”
