Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor better known as Mr Ibu has made a u-turn on his presidential candidate.
Newspot reports that Mr Ibu, in a conference themed, “South West Stands with Asiwaju Bola Tinubu“ had joined other Nollywood actors to endorse the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, to run for the 2023 presidential election.
In the two minutes long video shared online, the comic actor was seen with a group clamoring for Sen. Bola Tinubu to join the race to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari.
However, in a new video, the 60-year-old actor debunked the news that he was backing the APC leader, Biola Tinubu for presidency.
He noted that he’s a completely independent person and can not be influenced by the decision of a group of people.
Mr Ibu added that he does not run sideways and have always supported Atiku Abubakar for the presidency revealing that Atiku is like a father to him.
He recalled how the People Democracy Party (PDP) were helpful and paid for his treatment abroad when he was very sick.
According to the Comedian, he’s an actor and people would be needing his support to push agendas but that does not influence his stances.
