Anita Natacha Akide, also known as Tacha, a former Big Brother Naija housemate, has taken a dig at Nigerians who are calling for President Muhammadu Buhari’s resignation.
In a video posted to her Twitter account, the reality star said that Buhari will not leave office until his term is over.
She claimed that the only way for Nigerians to realize their dreams of having capable leaders in positions of authority is for them to engage in the democratic process, which involves voting in elections.
Tacha also slammed Nigerians who are always quick to go online to rant while taking a cue from a recently held by-election in Abia State where a small number of registered voters came out to vote.
“Nigerians forming woke but na we silly pass. So now it’s Buhari must go that is currently trending.
“Everyone in Nigeria knows that Buhari is not going anywhere until he completes his tenure so what is the need really?
“There was a by-election in Abia state and out of 500,000 registered voters, only 16,000 came out to vote. That is like 3 people out of 100 people. It is as good as nothing.
“How do we keep complaining about bad governance and we do not want to get involved in governance.
“How do you get involved in governance? By seeing it as an obligation to use your voter cards to vote. The voter card is not going to vote by itself. You need to use it.
“It’s time for us to change our attitude. We need to vote for good governance if we want good governance.” She stated her case.
