Famous Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has dumped the All Progressive Congress (APC).
In a recent press statement released on the movie star’s official Instagram page, Okonkwo cited the ruling party’s decision to field a Muslim-Muslim presidential candidate for the 2023 elections as a major reason for leaving the party.
Part of the statement read: “If Muslims could voluntarily vote for southern presidents it is then a fallacy to insinuate that they cannot accept a northern Christian vice president,” part of the statement read.
“This will permanently destroy the political viability of Northern Christians in Nigeria if allowed to stand. This is in the addition to the failure to protect lives and properties of Nigerians which should be their primary responsibility. The country is also in shatters.”
He said he resigned his membership in the interest of fairness, equity, justice, and peaceful co-existence among Nigerians.
It should be recalled that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, APC’s 2023 presidential flagbearer announced Shettima, a Muslim and a former two-term Governor of Borno, as his running mate last month in Daura, Katsina State.
