Popular actor and content creator, Adebowale Adedayo, known professionally as Mr Macaroni, has expressed deep worry over the Nigerian political space.
The award-winning skit maker averred that there might be a lingering curse on the political system in the country. He stated this while dismissing any ideas of venturing into politics in the future.
Mr Macaroni believes that the way politics is played in Nigeria, it tends to corrupt even the most diligent individuals once they become part of the system.
The 30-year-old comic act revealed that his activism roots back to his time in secondary school, where he developed a strong aversion to cheating and mistreatment of others.
He emphasised the importance of treating people with respect while noting that anyone who fails to treat people with respect will undoubtedly face his objections.
“I think in the Nigerian political system or space, at it were, there’s a curse roaming around there because we’ve seen great men, men of valour go into that space and become something we no longer recognise.
“I think it started from secondary school, naturally I don’t like being cheated and I don’t like people around me to be cheated, just treat people with respect. So the moment you do not, then you have a problem with me,” Mr Macaroni said.
