He opined that he would vote for Obi if he were to vote tomorrow.
He explained that while he is not categorically saying that Obi is a good man, he has however proven that he is ready to work for a better Nigeria.
The actor had this to say;
“Some think it’s their birthright to rule Nigeria. I don’t know where that came from. I am not saying Peter Obi is a good man, but he’s saying the right things and has done the right things.
There is much rage right now. Nigeria is blessed with great human and natural resources, but we have not been blessed with good leadership and the youth are angry about how things turned out.
“There are some people that have been thrown up that I feel are not credible enough to rule us. I think if you are part of a problem, you can not be part of the solution.”
