The senate president cautioned Davido against getting drown intro politics, adding that he should maintain his path in the entertainment industry.

He emphasized that the current administration of President Tinubu is ready to work across party lines for the betterment of the country.

The former governor of Akwa Ibom state said “You have made us very proud within the International Community. We will do everything possible to support the entertainment industry.”

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

“Even though your administration is a PDP one but we work across party lines for the interest of Nigeria. The only major 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.”

“It is a country with a population that is unmatched anywhere else in Africa. Over 240 million Nigerians. So I want you to continue to remain a great Ambassador of our country. Don’t allow anybody to drag you into politics. Continue to do your best in the entertainment industry.”
