Mr. Jollof, popular Nigerian comedian, whose real name is Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, recently voiced his disappointment with the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), claiming he was “used and dumped.”
After being a devoted supporter of President Bola Tinubu and the APC, the Warri-born Internet sensation made a significant shift in his allegiance.
He joined the ranks of the former Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, who was the Vice Presidential candidate representing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 elections.
Mr Jollof, in videos making the rounds, said he was used and dumped, and the change in his political stance came about when he encountered a Bible passage that emphasized the importance of rectifying one’s mistakes and errors.
The Comic star condemned the ongoing economic hardship in the country and also voiced his disapproval of the recent fuel price hike.
According to him, he warned Nigerians against supporting the APC after he left the party, but many disregarded his advice.
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)
