Okey Bakassi, a Nigerian comedian, has endorsed Peter Obi, the former governor of Anambra and a presidential contender for the Labour Party.
NewsReport gathered that the father of three declared on Thursday via Instagram that he has made up his decision to devote his entire attention to Peter Obi.
He went on to say that he told Nigerians that the present president lacked the qualifications to improve the country, but that his concerns went unheeded.
He stressed that the only discussion he wants to partake in is how Peter Obi will win the general elections.
Taking to his Instagram page, Okey Bakassi wrote: “When I was shouting in 2015 & 2019 to anyone who cared to listen that Bubu lacked the pedigree to make Nigeria better, some people refused to listen.
“Today Nigeria is in a mess and we are all suffering it. This 2023 election, it’s my turn not to listen to anyone…it’s PETER OBI for President! I don’t want to listen to anything that is not related to how Peter will win the election, don’t stress me with your political permutations.
“I can pay small attention to you, if you’re talking about other positions like National Assembly, Governor or State Assembly. I don’t want to hear about Igbo, Hausa, Yoruba, etc…I don’t want to hear about Christian, Muslim or Witchcraft. If the political discussion is not about how Peter will win, I will not listen.”
