Debo Adebayo, the Nigerian comic skit maker and activist who is also known as Mr Macaroni, has reached out to Nigerian voters.
He expressed his displeasure over Nigerians who are still hesitant to vote wisely.
In a tweet on Wednesday, he highlighted some of the issues prevailing in the country, saying with everything happening in Nigeria, no one should beg anybody to vote wisely.
He said it was still shocking to him that some Nigerians were not yet willing to make a better choice in the forthcoming elections.
“ASUU Strike, Killings, Kidnappings, Fuel Scarcity, Poverty, Bad Economy, Inflation, Armed Robbery, Police Brutality, Oppression, Abuse of Power, Corrupt and Lawless people in Government, Lack of Job opportunities for the people….
NO ONE SHOULD BE BEGGING YOU TO VOTE WISELY!!!.
“You are waiting for Mr Macaroni to tell you who to vote for? Suffer never tire you, Sit down there and be waiting,” he tweeted.
Mr Macaroni has been known to be one of the Nigerian celebrities who always aired out his grievances towards the present day government on the need to improve the quality of life of the citizens who voted into power.
His post however generated several reactions. While many supported his claims, others shared their contrary opinions.
