Foremost Nigerian comedian and movie actor, Mr Macaroni whose real name is Adebowale Adedayo has admonished Nigerian youths to desist from engaging in tribal war.
The comedian implored young people in a video posted to his Instagram page to stay united and avoid igniting tribal conflict over politicians who, in his opinion, will always be friends.
In his words,
“I know how some people must feel; I know we’re not happy with the way INEC conducted the elections in some certain areas, but the president-elect has been announced, and any aggrieved candidate can go to court; don’t let anybody use you. The Nigerian youths must remain one.”
“Do not die for any politician, don’t let any politician use you as a tool, that’s all.
They are friends, we know they’re friends.
The youth can have their choice but politicians will be politicians.”
“Don’t give up and don’t lose hope.
Anybody that is telling you as a Yoruba man to attack your Igbo brother or my Igbo brothers are telling you to attack Yorubas somewhere, Hausas or any other tribe, my brother please don’t.
And while we’re trying to build trust for politicians we must remain united because only then can we say oh na we bring you in you no do well get out. Only when they see that we’re united is when we can make decisions like that.”
