Entertainment Segun Arinze Insists Celebrities Are Not Going Into Politics For The Money

Segun Arinze, Nollywood actor and former President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has risen to the defense of Nigerian celebrities and entertainers who have dabbled into politics to affirm that they are not going into politics with the sole motive of making money or enriching themselves.

In a chat with Arts Dome, Arinze said, "Someone who decides to run or come into an office knows why he or she decided to run for that office in the first place. I don’t think they are going into politics for the money. I’m not going to be one of the people who would come out and say they are going into politics for the money. But they are going there to positively affect society.”

The actor added that Nigerian entertainers who have shown interest in politics have a lot to offer given their peculiar experiences. “They are role models, people look up to them, they talk to people and they listen to them. Being a role model alone is a burden for them. So, they know that they just have to serve the right purpose,” he said.
The likes of 9ice, Julius Agwu, Desmond Elliot, Bob Manuel Udokwu, Kate Henshaw are a few of Nigerian celebrities who have since lauched themselves into their respective political careers
