Veteran Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has taken to his official Instagram page to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s political party, saying that the All Progressives Congress (APC) has done good to the South Eastern (the Igbos) Nigerians than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The actor who contested for the governorship election of Enugu State in the 2019 election but failed to win, actually lamented about the Fulani herdsmen’s operations in Abuja.
The ‘Living in Bondage’ lead actor, Okonkwo wrote: This is why ranching is both desirable and inevitable. How can humans and animals be struggling for a right of way in the Federal Capital City of Abuja. We must move on to the 21st century system of animal husbandry to reduce tensions between passers-by, commuters, farmers and herdsmen. Have a great week ahead and God bless”.
A fan with IG username @mazi_bukaz – who was angered by the actor’s post – immediately commented accusing him of campaigning for President Buhari’s government.
He wrote: “You campaigned relentlessly for buhari’s re-election right? You never see nothing.”
The thespian in his reaction, wrote: “I did and I stand by my decision. When I see that the second Niger bridge is about being completed, when I see that runway at Enugu Airport has been expanded to accommodate international flights, when I see that Enugu-PH express roads are being rehabilitated, when I remember all other things Buhari had done for the South East and remember that PDP was there for 16 years and did nothing for us, I am proud of the decision I took and I have no apologies for that. God bless you for writing in.”
