Veteran Nollywood Actor, Zack Orji, is the latest thespian to jump on the ‘Tinubu for President’ bandwagon; and he’s not even playing.
Recall that only a couple of weeks ago, some Yoruba actors had similarly declared support for the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu, a former Governor of densely populated Lagos State.
The actors were tagged “set of hungry fellows” for their troubles.
According to Orji; “My support for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is both experiential and personal. I have lived in Lagos for over 40 years of my life.
“I have always known this man as a chief crusader for the democratic consolidation of our country Nigeria. I have always known him as a man who stands for equity, justice, fair play and national cohesion.
“In his time as the Governor of Lagos State, he ran an all-inclusive government, drawing people from different ethnic extractions into the executive council as decision makers to run the affairs of the state. There is nothing like this!
“People who came from different ethnic extractions were given an opportunity to be part of the decision making of Lagos State. And I know with a high degree of certainty, that on a national scale, when he becomes the President of Nigeria, he will do likewise.
“This is what we need in this country.
“I know that when he becomes the President of this country, he will turn the economy around for the better. So, join me to support this man, to turn the fortunes of this country around for the better.”
