Jim Iyke Says He Left Politics Because He Couldn’t Sell His Soul

Jim Ikyke tried and failed in his venture into politics in 2014, after joining Young Democratic Party as Director General in the Diaspora.

Fast-forward to today and the former actor has opened up on why he chose to walk away from Nigerian politics.

“I tried doing politics but what I was required to compromise was almost like selling your soul. I’m principled,” he told BBC Igbo. “The day my people summon me to serve, then I come out. If there’s a jungle on earth, it’s Anambra politics. It’s a different game.”

He also added that he didn’t want to become a puppet ot any godfather in Anambra State, which was why he chose to step away from the scene.

“I know that if I foray into politics, it’s either it consumes me or I get what I want. But I don’t want to be desperate or have a godfather play me around like a puppet. I don’t want to stain myself,” Iyke said.
