9ice, Desmond Elliot, Kate Henshaw and Kenneth Okonkwo are a few of Nigerian entertainers who have gone into politics but Chukwurah said a lot of these entertainers want to go into politics because they are not making that much money from their vocations.

She said “The motive of those who are embracing partisan politics is purely monetary. Let us call a spade a spade. If you tell me that you want to go into politics to serve the people, I would want to look at your record first. I want to see what you have done to better the lives of the people in your immediate community. How many boreholes have you sunk in the community? How many hours of community service have you given for free over the last four or five years? How well are you known as somebody who yearns for improvement in social development?”
