Nigerian songstress and mother of one, Simisola Ogunleye-Kosoko, simply known as Simi, has described as a joke, the 300 billion Naira budget for the 2023 general elections.
Simi stressed that it would have been better for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to “just used finger to point at the people you wanted to select.”
She made this known via her Twitter handle while calling out INEC on Monday, March 20. Evidently disappointed, Simi said it would have been better if the exorbitant amount was used to fix hospitals and schools in Nigeria. She tweeted:
“300 billion naira budget for this joke of an election. @inecnigeria you might have as well given them back the money to fix some hospitals and schools and just used finger to point at the people you wanted to select.”
“The blatant rigging and nobody in power addressed it. Lol. Giant problem of Africa. Anybody that saw the disenfranchisement and didn’t condemn it better keep their prayers for Nigeria. She doesn’t need prayers from people like you.”
WITHIN NIGERIA recalls Simi recently opened up on how people hear her tiny voice and assume she is sweet, when in reality she’s not.
Simi’s obvious relentless honesty made her open up to Youtuber Korty EO, about her music, motherhood and marriage. Read details here
