Nollywood actress, Chioma Ifemeludike, has chided her colleague, Mary Lazarus over her comments on the upcoming 2023 elections.

In an Instagram story on Monday, Lazarus had said that if any politician gives her money to vote for them, she will gladly collect the money but that won’t stop her from voting for the right person.

In her words; "If any Politician gives me money to vote for him/her…. I will gladly collect the money… Na my money… Especially the ones wey don rule before…. But I go use my head vote. Don’t reject their money or gifts, #nationalcake.

Reacting to her post, Ifemedulike berated her statement, saying that collecting money from politicians no one wants in power shows greed and lack of intergrity.

"Whoever thinks that taking money from a politician and not voting them is smartness is just really dumb, why do you even need money from someone you don’t want to vote into power? That’s greed, shows lack of integrity, and exactly how we got here.

"This same hunger mentality is why young girls date multiple men, faking love just for the money. We’ve successfully killed trust, truth, and commitment in Nigeria and we dare talk of a better society?

"My people say if you reject the devil, you reject his evil works.This is a primitive and archaic mindset and it’s unfortunate that some of these celebrities are negatively influencing our society.

"You can’t hear an average American, Chinese or European celebrity publicly say they will take money from a politician in exchange for votes.

"We need to understand that if we must rebuild Nigeria to be great then we must bury our hunger mentality and quest for national cake.

"You don’t need money from people with questionable intentions, most importantly you don’t need money to make critical decisions for the future of your children.

"Biko anytime we wish to talk about governance and politics let’s endeavour to send the right message, this is the only country that’s originally ours, if we fail our children’s children will suffer it," she said in an Instagram post on Monday.
