Nigerians React As Yoruba Actors Endorse Openly Tinubu

Yoruba actors back Tinubu

The open endorsement of All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, by the Yoruba Nollywood actors on Wednesday divided Nigerians.

While some were in support of the choice of the actors, others claimed that the same set of actors were among those who allegedly heralded President General Muhammadu Buhari and attendant maladministration on Nigeria in 2015 and 2019.

The APC presidential candidate campaign receive a boost on Wednesday as Yoruba Nollywood superstars openly endorsed the former Lagos State governor.

According to the thespians, their support for the APC national leader had become imperative following his support for the movie industry, practitioners, and the ex-governor’s influence across the country.

The actors made their position known in a video clip shared by a veteran actor, Yinka Quadri, where some of his colleagues took turns to endorse Tinubu’s candidacy.

Those featured in the video clip were Yinka Quadri, Jide Kosoko, Fausat Balogun, Taiwo Hassan, Femi Adebayo, Shola Kosoko, Faithia Williams, Saheed Balogun, Murphy Afolabi, and Eniola Ajao among others.

But in reaction to the endorsement, Nigerians on Twitter expressed concern over the Yoruba actors’ support for Tinubu considering the fact that the country needed a fresh hand with ideas as a leader.
