Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, the Nigerian comedian, who is popularly known as Mr Jollof, has claimed that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, “used and dumped” him.
The Warri-born Internet sensation said he was a staunch supporter of President Bola Tinubu and the APC but decamped to the camp of the former Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, the Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2023 elections, after he came across a portion of the bible that talks about correcting one’s wrongs.
Mocking Nigerians over the current hike in fuel price and general economic hardship, Mr Jollof said he warned the citizens to stop supporting APC after decamping but many didn’t take his advice seriously.
He stated this in a video trending on the internet.
Speaking in Pidgin English, Mr Jollof said, “I support Tinubu from the beginning but when I see the tigers wey dey with am and when I see the way say this people they are users. They used me. APC used me.
“But thank God, when I read the book of Luke 15:1-32, I know say the parable of the lost son na when you don commot from your papa house and you don fall short of his glory, you go go back to your papa. I now went back to [Ifeanyi] Okowa. Okowa hugged me and kissed me.
“And come back come tell una say this Tinubu walker, this world before una, I was. But una say I dey talk anyhow. But how far? Who dey buy fuel N617 now? E touch everybody.” (sic)
