Support for the presidential candidate of All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, was bolstered on Wednesday as Yoruba Nollywood superstars including Jide Kosoko openly endorsed the former Lagos State governor.
The thespians noted that 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.
In the one minute-thirteen second’s video clip which is said to be from the League of Actors, the thespians who took turns to speak in Yoruba, justified why Tinubu deserved to succeed Buhari.
Sharing the video clip on his Instagram page, Yinka Quadri noted that it was the South-West region, particularly the Yoruba people’s turn to become president.
According to him, Tinubu is a bridge-builder across regional, ethnic and religious lines that is capable of uniting the country.
