Okey Bakassi, a popular Nigerian comic actor, has endorsed Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential contender for next year’s elections.
Bakassi, a father of three, had warned Nigerians throughout the 2015 and 2019 elections that the current president was inept, but his concerns went unheeded.
On that point, he had decided to devote all of his energy to Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra State who is now a presidential candidate.
Okey Bakassi posted on his Instagram page:
“WHEN I WAS SHOUTING IN 2015 & 2019 TO ANYONE WHO CARED TO LISTEN THAT BUBU LACKED THE PEDIGREE TO MAKE NIGERIA BETTER, SOME PEOPLE REFUSED TO LISTEN. TODAY NIGERIA IS IN A MESS AND WE ARE ALL SUFFERING IT. THIS 2023 ELECTION, IT’S MY TURN NOT TO LISTEN TO ANYONE…IT’S PETER OBI FOR PRESIDENT! I DON’T WANT TO LISTEN TO ANYTHING THAT IS NOT RELATED TO HOW PETER WILL WIN THE ELECTION, DON’T STRESS ME WITH YOUR POLITICAL PERMUTATIONS. I CAN PAY SMALL ATTENTION TO YOU, IF YOU’RE TALKING ABOUT OTHER POSITIONS LIKE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY, GOVERNOR OR STATE ASSEMBLY. I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT IGBO, HAUSA, YORUBA, ETC…I DON’T WANT TO HEAR ABOUT CHRISTIAN, MUSLIM OR WITCHCRAFT. IF THE POLITICAL DISCUSSION IS NOT ABOUT HOW PETER WILL WIN, I WILL NOT LISTEN.”
