Dear Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the APC,

Warm greetings to you on this momentous occasion of your inauguration! As an actress and TV presenter, I have witnessed the power of leadership and the impact it can have on a nation. I would like to extend my heartfelt congratulations to you and your party, the APC, as you embark on this important journey of governing our beloved country, Nigeria.

First and foremost, I commend you for taking on this responsibility. Leading a nation is a complex task that requires wisdom, vision, and a deep understanding of the needs and aspirations of the people. I hope that you will embrace this opportunity to serve with humility, integrity, and a genuine commitment to the welfare of all Nigerians.

To make our country better, I would like to offer a few suggestions that may help guide your actions and decisions:

1. Unity and Inclusivity: Nigeria is a diverse nation with various ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds. Promote unity and inclusivity by fostering an environment where every Nigerian feels valued and represented. Seek to bridge gaps, promote dialogue, and build a cohesive society where all citizens can thrive.

2. Economic Empowerment: Focus on initiatives that promote economic growth and development, such as job creation, entrepreneurship support, and investment in critical sectors. Implement policies that attract local and foreign investments, empower small and medium enterprises, and alleviate poverty through sustainable economic strategies.

3. Education and Skills Development: Recognize the pivotal role education plays in nation-building. Prioritize investments in quality education, ensuring that it is accessible to all Nigerians. Promote vocational training and skills development programs that equip our youth for the demands of the modern world.

4. Infrastructure Development: Address the pressing issue of infrastructure in Nigeria. Improve transportation networks, power supply, healthcare facilities, and access to clean water. Sustainable infrastructure development will stimulate economic growth, enhance living standards, and promote overall well-being.

5. Good Governance and Anti-Corruption: Uphold the principles of good governance, transparency, and accountability. Combat corruption at all levels of society and ensure that public resources are utilized for the benefit of the people. Strengthen institutions that promote the rule of law and protect the rights of every Nigerian.

6. Environmental Sustainability: Recognize the importance of environmental conservation and sustainable development. Implement policies that promote renewable energy, protect natural resources, and mitigate the effects of climate change. Aim for a greener and more sustainable Nigeria for future generations.

These suggestions are by no means exhaustive, but I believe they reflect some of the key areas that require attention to foster positive change and progress in our great nation.

Once again, congratulations on your inauguration! I sincerely hope that you and the APC will lead Nigeria towards a brighter future. As an actress and TV presenter, I am committed to using my platform to promote the values of unity, progress, and social change.

Wishing you wisdom, strength, and the courage to make decisions that will uplift the lives of all Nigerians.

Hollywood actor George Clooney, others withdraw support for Biden

Hollywood actor George Clooney, others withdraw support for Biden

 

What if Hollywood, a key Democratic financial pillar, cut off Joe Biden’s campaign funding? That possibility now looms large after actor George Clooney and other wealthy donors urged the US president to withdraw from the White House race.

“I love Joe Biden. But we need a new nominee,” Clooney wrote in a column in the New York Times on Wednesday, after Biden’s disastrous performance in a televised presidential debate against Republican rival, Donald Trump rekindled fears around the 81-year-old’s fitness for office.

The statement dealt a serious blow to Biden, coming just three weeks after Clooney headlined a major fundraiser in Los Angeles for his reelection campaign.

At the gala, the president was able to raise more than $30 million in one evening, a record amount that showcased the industry’s might in financing the American left.

 

 

“If all these big donors pull out, he’s sunk,” said Steve Ross, professor of history at the University of Southern California who wrote a book on the influence of Hollywood on American politics. “Hollywood is still the one shop stop for candidates.”

Clooney is not the only one worried. In recent days, Netflix co-founder Reed Hastings, Walt Disney’s granddaughter Abigail and Hollywood mega agent, Ari Emanuel, whose brother, Rahm served as Barack Obama’s chief of staff — said they would not be financing Biden citing concerns over his age

 

 

Even though the millions generated by the American entertainment industry are essential to both parties, Hollywood’s hearts and wallets have predominantly leaned left for decades.

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton relied on Hollywood support in their respective White House bids. In 2007, Obama famously benefited from the “Oprah Winfrey effect,” receiving a boost to his profile after the star TV host organized a dinner to promote the man who was then still only a senator.

During the presidential race in 2020, the entertainment industry gave $104 million to Democrats compared to $13 million to Republicans, according to Open Secrets, a nonprofit that tracks campaign financing.

It wasn’t always that way.

In the 1980s, Republican president Ronald Reagan, himself a former actor, enjoyed the support of stars like Frank Sinatra and relied heavily on Hollywood’s coffers.

“Hollywood started as a conservative base for the Republican Party,” Ross told AFP.

 

 

“When Louis B. Mayer took over MGM Studios in the late 20s, he turned it into a fundraising publicity wing for the GOP, and he raised enormous amounts of money,” Ross said, referring to the Republican party.

 

 

The four Warner brothers, on the other hand, supported Democrat Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 1930s with their studio and their stars.

It was the election of John F. Kennedy in 1960 that marked Hollywood starting to shift to the left, as the era of blacklisting actors for suspected communist sympathies came to an end.

“It was a new era of free speech for movie stars who weren’t going to be blacklisted if they said anything deemed too radical,” the expert said.

Just hitting pause?

But even with its cultural and financial prowess, does Hollywood have the power to axe Biden from the race?

Clooney’s New York Times op-ed “is another pressure point, for sure,” said Steven Maviglio, a Democratic adviser who worked with former California governor Gray Davis.

But Maviglio believes the panic of certain donors to be “a temporary phenomenon.”
