April 6, 2014 – Jibola Dabo Confirms He’s Leaving Nollywood For Politics

Veteran Nollywood actor Jibola Dabo is set to leave Nollywood temporarily.

The popular movie star in a recent interview said he will be contesting for House of Rep seat in Owo Federal Constituency, Ondo State.

In his own words:

“ I can still do one or two movies, because nothing in the constitution says I can’t do movies, but I know there won’t be time to do much movies. I’m not quitting, I’m just taking a break to give back to the people, because I’ve realized that the industry has taken me to a particular peak. Giving back is not going to be easy from that industry, but if I’m part of a voice, I can better develop the industry and give back to the community.

So, I’m not really quitting, I’m only taking a break” he confided in me. He also told me he doesn’t have to be a career politician to know what his people need. His focus, if elected, “ Would be rural development. I’m quite experienced in the cultural activities in my constituency and I know how we can use the basic things we have in the land to enrich the youths in particular.

I’m going to concentrate on putting my constituency in the international brochure on tourism because we are very rich culturally and also use arts and crafts to create jobs for the youths which is part of the youth empowerment project I have been talking about with the current government. These are self created wealth that can happen from the land, because most of these youths have left the land seeking greener pastures where there are none. I believe that I can help redirect heir attention to the land”.

    Really, God sees your heart if you are telling the truth about giving back to the communiy. But if you are going there to steal like others, what you said will now will hunt you.

    I’m really not so concerned about his age as long as he can deliver. I hope he is as good in politics as he is on screen or even better. If he really wants to give back to the society, then God help him help us.

    r.Dabo, do you really need to tell he whole world your ambition, I thought It is suppose to be a privacy thing, Must you tell the whole world your plan? I respect men that keep their secret.
