Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, also known as Mr Jollof, a Nigerian comedian, has alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, “used and dumped” him.
The Warri-born Internet sensation stated that he was a staunch supporter of President Bola Tinubu and the APC before defecting to the camp of former Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Vice Presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, after reading a passage in the Bible about righting one’s wrongs.
Mr Jollof, mocking Nigerians for the present petrol price spike and other economic suffering, said he told citizens to cease supporting APC after decamping, but many did not take his advice seriously.
He claimed this in a viral online video.
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)
