Popular Nollywood actor Emmanuel Ehumadu has reacted to the backlash he gathered at the unvieling of his presidential candidate Bola Tinubu Asiwaju.
The actor took to his Instagram page where he shared a video in this regard alongside a caption that reads:
“2023.. Iam BEATIFIED . Vote SANATOR BOLA AHMED TINUBU AS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA. #batified #asiwajubolaahmedtinubu #asiwaju @bolatinubu2023 @seyitinubu @officialasiwajubat”

In his words:
“I Stand with BAT… Bola Ahmed Tinubu. You all should stop wasting your time and energy on insults… Iam working with my candidate and incoming President come 2023… Work with yours… Nigeria will start to be a better place when you realize that and respect my choice just like I will respect yours… It’s called “POLITICS”.. not “WAR” … I come in Peace. ✌🏾 #batified #politics #letpeacereign @seyitinubu @officialasiwajubat”
