Charlyboy, also known as the AreaFada, a maverick entertainer and social engineer from Nigeria, predicted that the country's current state would make it impossible to hold general elections in 2023.
Charlyboy declared that the 2023 election is currently in jeopardy due to a number of issues plaguing the entire nation, including hunger, poverty, the rise of the dollar, assaults on INEC offices, and a host of other problems.
He made an exclusive interview with Naijacrawl from the United Kingdom, where he is currently on vacation.
Peter Obi, a fervent supporter of the Labour Party's presidential candidate, also expressed his pessimism about the likelihood that the political heavyweights holding the nation hostage for years will agree to hand over power to Nigerians in the upcoming elections.
He said: “There may be no election next year going by what I see. I don’t think that these people who have their stronghold on the nation’s political space are willing to relinquish power to the people.
“I repeat, there may not be an election next year. I have been saying this since last year. The way things are going, I doubt it. Nigeria is in free fall. "I have been saying it for years."
Speaking on the dollar's rise and the state of the economy, CB said: “I was telling my family that a dollar will get to N1500." Look at what's happening now; it’s almost getting to N1000. There you are. The redesign of the Naira is not a solution. How can it be a solution when you are producing nothing and not exporting? So you just keep printing money to pay salaries and you think that’s a solution?
“Do you know what will happen at the end of the day? Because anybody who has money now, will not have tomorrow. If you have 5 million Naira today, some people will think it’s a lot of money, but do you know that every day, that 5 million Naira that you have in the bank keeps depreciating?
“If you give it another 4 months, that money will be worth 800k. So where do we go from there? So it looks like there may be no election next year. Everything points to that fact.”
