Popular Controversial Personality, Charly Boy Wants The Senate Scrapped, Death Penalty For Looters.
Charly Boy, real name Charles Oputa, on Thursday disclosed that he wants the Nigerian Senate scrapped.
The entertainer turned activist urged that corruption should be made a treasonable offense in the country for it to be adequately tackled.
Charly Boy made the call during a news conference put together by the “Occupy Unlimited” group.
The Occupy Unlimited group is a civil society group that advocates good governance and corruption-free society.
Charly Boy, who is also the National Coordinator of the group, stated that:
“…Corrupt leadership has been killing ordinary Nigerians slowly and steadily over the years.
“It is time to properly define it as ‘murder in disguise’, and treat as a treasonable offense against our dear country.
“Over 180 million people are surviving at the mercy of few politicians who have mastered the art of creating division among her own people through religion, ethnicity, corruption, and frivolous issues.”
According to him, death penalty should be introduced for all politically-corrupt persons in Nigeria if the nation really wants to be lifted out of economic hardship.
He noted that countries such as China and Pakistan were striving better because they decided to make corruption a crime that deserved capital punishment.

Charly Boy advised that the immunity clause in the Nigerian constitution be reviewed.
According to him, corruption is hiding under the immunity clause to loot and plunder.
He further explained that the Occupy Unlimited Group will on Nov. 15 stage a peaceful protest in Abuja against corruption.
He emphasized that the protest was to tell political leaders at all levels that they must be accountable and selfless in their service to the fatherland.
Charly Boy further affirmed the objective of the movement saying:
“This is a process of holding politicians accountable not only to their promises, but in their service to the Nigerian nation.
“The mass protest will begin at the Unity Fountain in Abuja down to the National Assembly.
“We are a coalition of ordinary Nigerians from different parts of the country, with no political affiliations; we believe in the interest of our country.
“We also believe strongly in the fight against corruption by President Muhammadu Buhari.”
