In his chat with Sunday Scoop, the ace comedian explained that he didn’t have faith in the Nigerian political system and he will never run for a political post in this present-day Nigeria. He said:

“I think Banky W and other entertainers running for political offices have a stronger belief in the system than I do. I don’t think there can be credible elections when the voting system is not credible. That has been my fear. Also, we are still practising money politics, which means that an individual with the biggest pocket takes the slot.”

“I don’t understand why the person who used the maze to hit the head of his colleague in the Senate is still there. Once you have embarrassed the chamber, you should be thrown out. Why are they yet to prosecute the people who went into the chamber and carried the maze?

Why should it take so long to put people who said a snake swallowed money in jail? When the constitution is strengthened and the political scene is convenient for people who don’t use money to contest elections, then I can go into politics.”

  3. Well I really don’t blame you sha, just sit back and watch politics isn’t exactly that wonderful game to run for

  4. if you want to be a clean and clear mind person, don’t involve in Nigeria politics because one you join, you were all the same.

  5. Hahaha! Ali is because you understand the system of Govt in Nigeria very well. If the money shared is reduced too low, no one will ever show interest in Nigeria politics.

  6. The whole system is corrupt and he has ssen it. Truly, the person with fat pocket is the I choice. Ali,choose wisely my guy.

  9. why are everyone going into politics. are their no other things to do in Nigeria other than politics

  10. Yes Alibaba is right, they can never be a credible election in this country when voting system is not credible. They shouldn’t ask him again bcos his calling isn’t in politics *period

  11. Until the philosopher becomes the King and the King becomes a philosopher, Nigerian Politics would still remain in the mud

  12. You r right sir but we need a good heart to rule this country or else we will just be going in circles

  13. You are right. But if we sit down and watch or say until those evil ones out of pose,we will still not achieve anything. Politics is not what one should just wake up and think of joining because of the happenings. Money is everything in politics but if you as an individual has developed interest to join,you go and make things better.

  14. Alibaba,everyone must not be in politics,maintain your line of comedy weather Nigeria way of politics is good or not.that is what i call consistency in brand!

  15. True talk Ali Baba. The current political system in Nigeria can mess one up big time. May God change our story.

  16. He’s right,people with good plans for this country can’t win because they don’t have the money to buy votes.

  17. Nigeria politics is all about money my brother just take your time when the time comes you will contest.

  18. That is Nigeria for you and the politician gimmicks.only if the youths with sense are allowed to rule

  19. Now anyone with little money is thinking about joining politics. All we want is people who are ready to serve the country in the true sense of the word. But where can they be found?

  20. These days, anyone with little money will be thinking about joining politics. All we want are people who will represent the interest of the country.

  21. In as much as you are right about this but we may need people like you to change alot in this faulty system we are all in,instead of you staying back make the move and let’s see how things turn out for good

  22. Politics is not what one should just wake up and think of joining because of the happenings. Money is everything in politics but if you as an individual has developed interest to join.

  23. What he is saying is right money makes things possible… as they say money is the root of all evil…

  24. Politics especially here in Nigeria is not so free and fair, i guess that’s why he isn’t interested in politics for now

  25. Thank you Ali Baba, we’re of the same mind, the political system of this country is somewhat degrading that it’s not encouraging, you have to play dirty before you could emerge any political position in this country

  26. He would have been a good politician but as he said no hope in the political system of this country

  27. Yeah you are really correct this is our problems and it needs to be solved before things start getting better

  28. Politics is not an easy game at all. They are alot of things involved.. I will advise him not to venture into it

  29. He is right, the Nigeria politics is not free and fair, the politics is a dirty and you be ready to get your hands dirty to win in this our country.

  30. well he have is own reasons best know to him shall. all we need is good and God fearing leader to lead us which i personally believe that one day God will answer my prayer

  31. His Intention was clear, but leaving the brim the power in the hands of devilish people would not change anything, A man of his calebal can make through his deductive reasoning and understanding the problem.

  32. Mr man u better stay where you are cos once you involve yourself in politics people will be seeing you as dubious person cos politics is a dirty game.

  33. I’m quite sure he understands that politics is not comedy. and can never be. it’s not about going into politics. can he do what they want him to do

  34. I like your sincerity Ali baba and what you stand for but as a comedian, I hope is not just talk but when the time comes to act I hope you won’t do like others you are talking about now!

  35. That’s nice one. Nigerian politicians are the corrupt merchant of lots. Don’t join them.
    There will influence you with their wicked character

  36. I understand his point of view but the truth is unless you’re there you can’t change the system. If he believe he’s a good person that can do better he should contest

  37. Ali my brother, you are making alot of sense and the old corrupt ones won’t allow space for the young to rule.

  38. I get you Alibaba, but if we were to all sit back and bemoan our corrupt system, no one would do anything to change it and the same vicious cycle will continue.

  39. They can never be a credible election in this country when voting system is not credible. no one would do anything to change it and the same vicious cycle will continue.

  40. Political position now in our Nation doesn’t fit for the speech vocal but the pocket vocal…..your pocket speaks now more than your words….

  41. he obviously doesn’t have faith in the Nigerian political system and as such he will never run for a political post in this present-day Nigeria. Nigeria wont even accept him.

  42. Thank u Ali Baba.. Nigeria will only get better we grow above money politics, believe it or not… That’s the truth

  43. Politics is a dirty game, so bro just sit your ass on a sport and watch them do them things.. It not everyone That will share from the national cake

  47. True words as it is said that money is the key to all evil…he should just be who he is and dont run for politics cause without money you cant win even those who has the money has not yet been elected…

  48. Ali Baba. Just focus on your hustle. Politics in naija is not for the faint hearted. Those other guys are just looking for names.

  49. if you want to be a clean and clear mind person, don’t involve in Nigeria politics because once you join them , you were all the same.

  50. Politics is a dirty game, so bro just sit your ass on a sport and watch them do them things.. It not everyone That will share from the national cake…

  51. Ali Baba really say it all.
    Until when individual can contest without seeing it as an investment then many will troop out to serve the nation.

  52. That means you will never go Into politics in this generation, so many useless things that are supposed to be handled but the FG are quite about it. You so right with your statements. It’s the politics of the rich. God bless you.
