I am announcing my candidacy for the Office of the President of our dear country in the 2019 general elections. Consultations are ongoing and I will announce at a future date under what party. #MakeNigeriaBRIGHTAgain."

In an interview with The Cable News, Basketmouth took time to comment on Nigeria's last presidential election which was won by Muhammadu Buhari.

He criticized Buhari's predecessor, President Goodluck Jonathan, whose administration  was dominated by allegations of corruption.

"While many of my colleagues, friends and family members campaigned for the PDP, APC and various candidates during the last elections (and I cannot emphasize enough that it is their right to do so), I never campaigned for Buhari or any other politician."
