Yaw Urges Entertainers to Encourage Fans On Voters’ Participation

A broadcaster, actor and comedian, Steve Onu, aka Yaw, has said that fellow entertainers should do more to encourage their fans to vote wisely.

The comedian is currently putting finishing touches to preparations for his forthcoming three-day event tagged, Po, that will feature a satirical play, music, dance and comedy.

In an interview with Sunday Scoop, Yaw noted that one of the major reasons for the show is to sensitize Nigerians to exercise their civic rights in the forthcoming elections. He said, “It is a three-day show because the play is (meant) to sensitize people to governance. It is a satire about the part that members of society play (in politics). It is not just about those in power. We are all in this together. If we do not get it right now with the way Nigeria is, I do not know what will become of us. The play is a medium to encourage people to vote wisely. I believe that entertainers should constantly encourage their fans and other citizens to vote for the leaders they want.”

He however noted that he had no interest in joining politics. He said he is not thinking of contesting in any political post, now or in the future.
