Nigerians should stop voting until there are laws sentencing corrupt politicians to death, says Ruth Kadiri/ Ruth Kadiri

A Nollywood actress and film producer, Ruth Kadiri says voting should be abolished in Nigeria until laws sentencing politicians as well as public servants to death for misusing public funds are implemented.

The actress said this in a series of posts on her social media on Thursday.  According to her, the absence of serious punishment for public office holders caught misappropriating funds has birthed the extant corruption-laden political atmosphere in Nigeria.

Her words: "We should abolish voting in Nigeria until death sentence laws are given to politicians and public servants who misuse Nigeria’s funds. I said what I said. Correct me if I’m wrong and tell me what your government has done for you.

"Based on what I have seen in the past, any incoming governor or president campaigning for your votes and promising you a better Nigeria is a big liar. I repeat they are liars and do not vote for them.

"Any political party promising you a better Nigeria is a liar. They have ruled yet nothing has changed. Be wise. Please be wise.

"The number one problem of Nigeria is political parties. Best l we start voting for political parties so that when a party candidate fails in office, we know that we are done with that party, no stories. I woke up angry with myself for being a Nigerian."
