Veteran Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo on Tuesday defended President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress, APC.
Naija News reports that the actor had earlier posted a video on Instagram showing the moment he was struggling right off the road with cattle in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Sharing the dramatic video clip, Okonkwo said the country must move to the 21st century and get rid of open grazing.
He agitated that ranching must be adopted to reduce tensions between passers-by, commuters, farmers and herdsmen.
The actor wrote: “This is why ranching is both desirable and inevitable. How can humans and animals be struggling for a right of way in the Federal Capital City of Abuja? We must move on to the 21st-century system of animal husbandry to reduce tensions between passers-by, commuters, farmers and herdsmen. Have a great week ahead and God bless.”
Okonkwo, however, get trolled after sharing the video. Some netizen lambasted the actor for campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari in the previous elections.
One of the critics identified as azi_bukaz wrote: “You campaigned relentlessly for Buhari’s re-election right? You never see anything.”
Replying to the netizen, Okonkwo said he never regretted campaigning for President Buhari after seeing projects put in place by the incumbent leader in the South Eastern region of the country.
The actor said: “Yes I did and I stand by my decision. When I see that the second niger bridge is about to be completed when I see that runway at Enugu Airport has been expanded to accommodate international flights, when I see that Enugu-PH express roads are being rehabilitated, when I remember all the other things Buhari had done for the South East and remember that PDP was there for 16 years and did nothing for us, I am proud of the decision I took and I have no apologies for that. God bless you for writing in”.
