2015: Eedris Abdulkareem praises GEJ’s administration, warns Nigerians
While being interviewed on Channels TV’s Sunrise programme on Saturday, he revealed that his new album titled G2G is an appeal to Nigerians to desist from attacking the incumbent president, Goodluck Jonathan and his administration.
Citing some of the progress works in his administration, Eeedris said “This Lagos-Ibadan expressway has been there for fifteen years by the former Minister of Works, Baba Tony Anenih and they didn’t do anything .Goodluck is doing that road. That is a Federal government road. He is working on it. Our airport has been reformed. Thirdly our agricultural sector- farmers never got their fertilizer directly but today they get their fertilizer. fertilizer is now a big business. So it is important we say all these things because most people don’t know. We all know that the insecurity is propaganda. ”
Asked if his new crusade for GEJ is because he hopes to get something out of it, Eedris said, “I was the first person that came out in the rally when Pres. Goodluck Jonathan increased the fuel price at Ojota. I have never seen Goodluck before but what I know is going on with that guy is a big propaganda and they should leave him alone let him work. When I sang jagajaga, did anybody pay me? If opposition paid me, by now I go don get plenty billions. So its simple, the facts must be told. When I sang Nigeria jagajaga, it was 12 years ago and this is 12 years later, so why is everybody blaming the poor guy? Is it because he is from Niger Delta or because the presidency has left the north?” he asked.
