Biafra: Blessing Anyim, Pius Anyim’s Daughter On What Celebrities Should Do

US-based Nigerian actress, and daughter of former Senate President, Anyim Pius Anyim has spoken about the on-going Biafra agitations facing President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.

Speaking on celebrities’ role in the crisis, Blessing Anyim said the Nigerian celebrities are in best position to use their influence to bring about stability, and peace in the country. She described these two as non-negotiable.

Blessing Anyim said, “Celebrities have the biggest platform to persuade or grab the attention of people. The roles celebrities can play to ensure the stability of the country cannot be overemphasised.

“Instead of keeping mute, they should use their platforms to influence and persuade the Nigerian society at large for peace and stability.

“In this part of the world, people don’t respect the democratic system of governance the way they are meant to respect it. Of course you have the right to vote the candidates who best represent your ideas and beliefs, so when situations like this present themselves, we have leaders who can come together and think of a solution to avoid the killing of innocent people.”

The fast rising actress, who is pursuing her modelling career in the US advised every Nigerian to embrace peace and social development.

She added that, “We should all maintain unity among ourselves as Nigerians, and seek for national societal development. Maintaining a middle ground should be our priority.”
