The African Democratic Congress, ADC has offered three notable celebrities ‘free tickets’ to contest in any post in the country come 2023.
The celebrities which where fore-mostly offered were the entertainment star, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as TuBaba, Omotola Jelade-Ekeinde, and the soccer star, Ahmed Musa.
National Chairman, ADC, Ralph Okey Nwosu made the pledge while receiving a certificate of endorsement of the party as “the one-party for Nigerian youths and women,” in the next election cycle.
“These stars can vie for governorship, Senatorial or even the highest office in the land on the ADC platform provided they meet the requirements stipulated in the 1999 constitution (as amended) as well as the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC guidelines”.
