2023: Activist, Deji Adeyanju tasks Davido to run for House of Reps

Following his donation of N250 million to orphanages across the country, activist Deji Adeyanju has called on singer Davido, to run for House of Representatives come 2023.

He said this in a post he shared on his IG page this afternoon.

”Happy birthday OBO Baddest @davido. I appeal to you to run for House of Reps in 2023 because you care about the people and know what the issues are. The N250m donation to the less privileged is a further justification of this assertion.” he wrote

Recall NewsClickNg had earlier published reports on how Davido received over N200m as gifts from his friends, added N50m of his personal money, and donated the sum of N250m to orphanages across Nigeria.

He also set up a five-man committee to monitor the progress of the disbursement of the funds.

The singer also shared a screenshot of his bank account on Monday, stating that he has added his own N50m to the contributions.

Meanwhile, Davido, on Monday vowed to ensure that children in orphanages benefit from his N250m donation.

The singer said this as some fans stated that the money won’t get to the children in the orphanages, due to corrupt practices of welfare officers.

A tweep, @soibomari, said, “I told mum what Davido did and I’ve never seen her revolt so passionately against something. She said the money won’t get to the children because welfare officers steal all.

“I hate Nigeria. She said it’s so bad that nurses never want to leave welfare homes when they’re posted there.”

Quoting the above tweet on Monday, Davido said, “I will personally make sure this doesn’t occur! I put that on my life!” (sic)
