“I am not joining politics for money but to serve” – Kate Henshaw
In a chat with Sahara TV, the actress cited lengthy stay in politics as reason for much of the problems in Nigeria, adding that it equally breeds corruption on the part of government officials.
Though she also said she had no money to share, she stated that she would not enter politics for the purpose of financial gain, instead to “push” herself to better the country.
“I don’t hope to be there forever. I just want to do, make noise, leave when the ovation is loudest. That’s the best way. I don’t want to be there for 10 years, 12 years, 16 years, that’s the best way. I want to do other things. 4- 8 years. That’s the limit…you can hold me to my word. There has to be another person, who will go through the process, who would want to try.
“That’s the problem. Too many people stay in one place for so long and other people just lose hope and say why would I even bother”.
On how much money she had and was willing to dole out, she said, “There’s no money. I can’t match the people who have been in the system for 20 to 30 years. I’m going with God and my heart. I’m not sharing money. If you continue sharing money, it will never stop. If you want a change, a true change, then vote for me and you’ll see the change. But if you want money, hey, go for money and stay where you are and don’t ever complain”.
