‘Even Jesus Cannot Save Us’- Ali Baba and Omoni Oboli on Nigeria’s Economic Crisis
Nollywood actress, Omoni Oboli was fiercely in support of the Goodluck Jonathan government, while comedian, Ali Baba preached for the fight against corrupt practices, but the stars have taken to their social media to preach support and faith in the present administration.
“The economy will remain like this for a loooooooooooooong while. Because the strings that pull us into dire straits are still pulling us even much stronger. How did we get here?” Ali Baba said in his detailed, emotional post where he listed out the shortfalls of both present and past administration.
“OUR ALMIGHTY crude prices that were our saving grace are low. We are borrowing. EVEN JESUS CAN NOT SAVE US unless we create new sources of revenue.”
For Omoni Oboli, the prolific filmmaker advocates for the use of Made in Nigeria products as the way to evade the crushing economy crisis.
“Tough times don’t last, but tough people do! Support Nigeria! Nigeria will rise again! She said, adding, “Let’s stick together and support each other. It is well with us. God’s got us! We can do this!”
