Popular Nigerian comedian Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, better known as Mr Jollof, has claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) “used and dumped” him after the elections.
In a video that surfaced online, Mr Jollof mocked Nigerians over the ongoing hike in fuel prices and the subsequent hardship on citizens, stressing that he warned the people against supporting the APC.
Mr Jollof was once a supporter of President Bola Tinubu and the APC, but he has now shifted his allegiance to the former Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, who is the vice presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections. He said he made this decision after coming across a portion of the bible that speaks about correcting one’s wrongs.
In the video, Mr Jollof spoke in Pidgin English and said: “I support Tinubu from the beginning, but when I see the tigers wey dey with am and when I see the way say these people they are users. They used me. APC used me.”
Mr Jollof’s claims have ignited conversations on social media about how the political parties treat their supporters. Some social media users have speculated that Mr. Jollof has not been paid by the APC, while others believe that he has changed his political allegiance for monetary gain.
