HAPPENING NOW: P-square To Be Locked Up In Prison Until Further Notice, For Speaking Against Sick Buhari’s Government

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has ordered for the immediate arrest of  Peter Okoye of P-square, over alleged disparaging remarks against the current administration.
The call for the arrest, came as the brothers via their Instagram pages, questioned the Federal Government’s purported move to ban the production of music videos abroad.
They said the Federal Government was trying to control what it never supported, adding that, one day a law would surface that will monitor how they sleep with their wives.
Reacting in a statement signed by the APC Youths National Secretary, Collins Edwin, the group described Peter Okoye as a “son of darkness.”
“We read the scurrilous remarks credited to Mr Peter Okoye of the P-square group, against the Federal Government’s job-saving policy in the entertainment industry, with great anger and vexation.
“Least of all persons to make scathing remark against the government, is the P-square group, which the local content policy of the Federal Government dusted-up from the valley of obscurity.
“Where was Peter Okoye or Psquare brand in 1999, when foreign music dominated our airwaves? If not for the government policy which mandated all broadcast stations in Nigeria to pay attention to Nigerian music, by playing 95 percent of Nigerian songs everyday, would Peter Okoye or Psquare be known to anybody in Nigeria today?
“Or would they have competed with better American music, which dominated our airwaves then?
“After the government have used its policy to brush them up from nothing to something; instead of giving opportunity to other people, they are taking Nigerian jobs to foreign countries, through the shooting of music videos abroad.

Who do you want as Nigeria's 2019 President???

“Now that government has intervened to raise great and better Entertainers again, Peter Okoye has the gut to insult the entire Federal Government, by calling our great leaders ‘Ndi Ala’, which means mad and stupid people. How dare you say that Psquare?
“We therefore, urge the security agencies in the country to arrest Mr Peter Okoye, for disrespecting our government and bringing it to a disrepute.
“If you cannot produce in Nigeria and hire Nigerians, then leave the industry. We must export Nigerian culture to the outside world, through our music and videos.”

    The APC govt is not ashamed of saying in 1999 where were the P-spuare, in 1999 where were the APC govt, they want to claim what dey did not for. If they want to ban entertainment industries for shooting abroad, they should also ban the Nigeria leaders from going abroad for medical treatment. let them showcase Nigerian’s doctor as what they claim they did in 1999. thanks.
