Nollywood actress, Shirley Igwe, says her experience working as principal protocol officer to former Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha gave her an insight into what transpires in corridors of power.

This is even as she appreciated the ex-governor for giving her the opportunity to serve and cut her teeth in politics.

Speaking with Saturday Beats, she said; "My experience as a government appointee during Rochas Okorocha’s administration exposed me to how people behave in the corridors of power, as well as the things that go on in politics.

"I can literally forecast politics at the snap of a finger now. I am grateful for that (experience). On if I desire to be an appointee again; of course.

"But, maybe not now. I always lookout for opportunities to be a helping hand to mankind. I helped a lot of people at that time.

Igwe also maintained that entertainers campaigning for politicians were not always influenced by money.

"Campaigning for a political candidate is not about the money. That would be selling oneself and one’s generation short.

"If any entertainer comes out tomorrow and starts campaigning for a candidate, I would not assume that they were paid for it because it would be shameful to know that they were paid," she said.
