Veteran Yoruba Nollywood actress Foluke Daramola bares her mind on the arrest and the ongoing trial of Naira Marley with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).
The arrest of Niara Marley by the EFCC has sparked controversies among Nigerians on social media, with opinions being divided among Nigerian youths.
The ongoing divided opinions got veteran Yoruba actress to commenting her stance on the issue, as she joined conversations to expressed her thought towards his arrest and the aftermath of his actions.
In a video uploaded to her Instagram page, the actress said;
“Sometimes I wonder how our people think. I don’t know Naira Marley, I haven’t met him before, I don’t have any form of relationship with him. I haven’t even seen on social media, Maybe because im, not the type that follows people..I Just stay in my lane. One thing I want us to know is that two wrongs don’t make a right. Just because there is no money in the country, there is no work does not justify corruption, does not justify evil. Because our politicians are doing it does not make it right for us to do it. It is really sad when we try to paint bad as good. I don’t want to mention names and I am not going to tag anybody. We should under stand the implications, the depth of what we do”.
Expressing her thoughts further, she captioned the video;
“My take is we have to start building a stronger and better Nigeria from u and 1 if we say cos the country is bad and doesn’t have anything to offer us then we will be the victims of our own misbehavior, never forget we are 1st Nigerians before anything and we can only but be 2nd class citizens wherever we find ourselves so y are we bent on soiling the name of our country further???!!!!”
