“Shameless People” – Nigerians Attack Yoruba League Of Actors For Supporting Tinubu (Video below)



Some Yoruba Nollywood film stars under the umbrella of the League of Actors for 2023 have openly thrown their weight behind Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the governing All Progressives Congress APC), sparking condemnation from some Nigerians on social media.

However, the endorsement has not sat well with some Nigerians who have slammed the actors for their choice.

In a video shared this morning on Instagram by Nigerian actor, filmmaker, producer and director, Alhaji Akanni Olayinka Quadri, 62, the actors said the former Lagos State governor, described as the “maker of modern Lagos” would be “the moulder of a greater Nigeria”.

More than a dozen actors endorsed Tinubu’s presidency including Yinka Quadri; actress Faithia Williams, 53; film director and producer, Prince Jide Kosoko, 68; and 43-year-old Femi Adebayo Salami, a film actor, lawyer, producer and Special Adviser to the Governor of Kwara State on Arts, Culture and Tourism.

Yinka who shared the video wrote in the caption: “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a bridge builder across regional, ethnic and religious lines that is capable of uniting the country. We have identified him as an exceptional manager of resources and a seasoned administrator and we are convinced that the nation needs him in the next dispensation.

“We have discovered a man who is ready to sacrifice all he has for his fatherland…the least sacrifice we can make is to let the whole country see the Leadership we have seen, feel the compassion we have felt; and move the maker of modern Lagos (Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu) to the moulder of a greater Nigeria.

“Nigerians, we need to rise and give Tinubu an unequivocal charge: to springboard Nigeria into a growth phase several leaps ahead, the way Lagos State — under his guide— left the launch platform two decades ago, has stayed the positive course and is now the 5th biggest economy in Africa (rated as a nation). We must not fail to give this indefatigable leader with such an audacious spirit, a creative instinct and a striking mission a clear mandate to make the biggest difference possible to our collective trajectory of growth and development as a nation. What would it take? Our massive turnout and count of votes in the 2023 presidential election.

“Show me a man with bigger heart and i will show you Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“I, Alhaji Olayinka Quadri pledge my full support for BAT not because i was paid to do so but because of Asiwaju support and influence to all and sundry over the years. Majority of actors who venture into politics today do so because of the influence of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“By God grace , Asiwaju will move from Jagaban of Borgu to Jagaban of Nigeria; from Asiwaju of Lagos to Asiwaju of Nigeria. For all your sacrifices, for all your effort, God will reward you this time.
