The All Progressives Congress, often known as the APC, “used and dumped” Nigerian comic Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, also known as Mr. Jollof.
The Internet sensation from Warri claimed he was an ardent supporter of President Bola Tinubu and the APC but switched to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, after reading a passage in the bible that discusses righting one’s wrongs. Ifeanyi Okowa is the vice presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2023 elections.
Jollof said he told the people to cease supporting APC after decamping but many didn’t take his advice seriously, mocking Nigerians over the present increase in petrol prices and other economic difficulties.
In a viral online video, he made this claim.
Mr. Jollof said, “I support Tinubu from the beginning but when I see the tigers wey dey with am and when I see the way say this people they are users,” in Pidgin English. They applied me. My use by APC.
“Thank God, however, that the parable of the lost son states that if you depart from your father’s home and do not fall short of his glory, you return to your father. This is what I understood when I read Luke 15:1-32. After that, I returned to [Ifeanyi] Okowa. I received a hug and kiss from Okowa.
“And come back and tell Una that I was this Tinubu Walker in the world before Una. But according to una, I talk anyhow. Though how far? Who is still buying N617 fuel? E touches everyone. (sic)
