Popular Nollywood Actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has said that President Muhammadu Buhari has done more for Ndigbo Nigeria under the All Progressives Congress, APC, than the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Recall that the veteran Nollywood Actor had contested for governor of Enugu State in the 2019 election but failed.
In a post on his official Instagram page, on Tuesday, Okonkwo cried out over the operation of Fulani Herdsmen in Abuja. He said :
“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?” the actor had asked. “We must move on to the 21st-century system of animal husbandry to reduce tensions between passers-by, commuters, farmers, and herdsmen.”
A critic replied at the actor, putting it to him that he had campaigned for Buhari-led administration. In his reply, Okonkwo stated that he is still proud to have campaigned “relentlessly” and supported Buhari’s government.
“Yes, I did and I stand by my decision. When I see that the second niger bridge is about to be 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. Nothing changed. “I have been a strong advocate of ranching from day one. Just check through my antecedents. I support the truth at all times. I joined politics for the good of the people and will support good policies irrespective of party affiliation.”
