APC Musicians Forum to boycott Tuface-led protest

A group, APC Northern Musicians Forum, on Friday said it would not participate in the planned protest by Nigerian music icon, Tuface Idibia, over alleged sufferings in Nigerian.

Haruna Ningi, Chairman of the Forum, who made the remark at a media briefing in Kaduna, said that the protest was different from the ideology of the forum.

He, however, agreed that Nigerians were suffering, but insisted that the present administration met nearly an empty treasury and had to increase savings, to get Nigerians out of the present situation.

Mr. Ningi urged Nigerians to be patient with the present administration, adding that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government would get the country out of the present difficulties.

“There is hunger in the land and the president is going to give us a life-saving change that our sufferings will not come back again.

“But they need time for the change to come.”

Mr. Ningi debunked the claim that the forum was influenced by politicians.

“The president has integrity and will not pay any musician to sing for him.”

He said that the forum was meant to mobilise the electorate through music at the grassroots to disseminate correct and factual information on national challenges.

“Such songs in hard times will imbibe in the minds of common men that they have a role to play in the journey of change.”

    As a music icon he should have use his position positively to enhance the current anti corruption crusade of the FG.
    Nigeria is in a mess today due to heavy looting and corruption that left our Nation paralyse. I am so disappointed with 2face because his action seems to be in favour of those hell bend in maintaining the status quo( national fund looting and corruption)
    I will bone all my 2face CD cus he is now in the camp of those whose only interest is their pocket no matter what.

      If you bone all your 2face CD, you will return to your grave yard to dance when the thing later hook you for body.

      But if you burn them… you get am for soft copy, be that. You are just cleaning you house of disposables.

    Tuface where were you when GEJ was president of Nigeria.

  • haba mallam

    We are calling all reasonable Nigerians to boycott Tuface songs for 6 months

  • Fubara David-West

    What gives the police the authority, to demand a cancellation of the protest?

  • god

    nigerians will never get out of there suffering. you think you are wise.. not wise enough to set yourself free from suffering. no government in the world gives the people what the demand, request, desire without a protest

    This is the very reason why Nigeria can NEVER develop. Everything is tribalized and the so-called leaders are well aware of this. When it comes to looting, money loses face and religion. They are Hausa or Yourba when their own is in power; they are Muslims or Christians when their own is in power, but when it comes to uniting to fight the criminals and looters called leaders, they are no where to be found. The looting will continue and Nigerians will continue to die senseless deaths in poverty because of tribalism and religion. May God deliver us
