Famous Afrobeat musician Davido has been cautioned by Senate President Godswill Akpabio not to permit anyone to lure him into politics. The senator gave the caution during the singer’s courtesy visit in Abuja on Monday. Akpabio thanked Davido for making the nation proud and expressed his happiness upon receiving the musician.

He stated:

“For me and for the government of President Bola Tinubu, it’s an inclusive administration, and you must have noticed in my various outings, that we move as one across party lines.

“Even though your administration is a PDP, one thing that is common to all of us is the interest of this country. And it is a country that has given you so much love.

“The country’s population is unmatched anywhere else in Africa, over 240 million Nigerians. So I urge you to remain a great Ambassador of our country. Continue to do your best in the entertainment industry and don’t allow anybody to drag you into politics.

“For us in the political arena, we value talents. We will do everything possible to support the entertainment industry and talented people like you. All we need is patience and prayers for us to succeed.”
