Nigerian actor and filmmaker, Zachee Ama Orji popularly known as Zack Orji has expressed his support for Bola Ahmed Tinubu ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.
Tinubu is the presidential candidate under the flag of the All Progressives Congress (APC) political party.
The veteran actor was spotted in a video now making rounds on the internet explaining that his support for Tinubu is based on experience and observations.
“My support for Bola Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu is both experiential and personal, I have lived in Lagos for over 40 years. I have always known this man as a chief crusader of the democratic consolidation of Nigeria,” Orji said.
Zack Orji further described Tinubu as a man who stands for justice, equality, fairness and national cohesion. He explained that during Tinubu’s rule as the governor of Lagos state, he had permitted members of various other ethnic groups to rule as decision makers to run the affairs of the state.
He said: “I have always known him as a man who stands for justice, equity, fair play, and national cohesion. In his time as the governor of Lagos state, he ran an all-inclusive government, drawing people from different ethnic extractions into the executive council as decision makers to run the affairs of the state.
“There is nothing like this. People who came from different ethnic extractions were allowed to be part of the decision-making of Lagos state. I know with a high degree of certainty that, on a national scale when he becomes the president of Nigeria, he will do likewise.”
Lastly, the thespian also stated how voting for Tinubu would transform the economy of Nigeria for good.
“This is what we need in this country. Though we differ in tribe and tongue, we stand tall and proud in solidarity and brotherhood. I know that when he becomes the president of this country, he will turn the economy around. Join me to support this man and turn the fortunes of this country around for the better,” he said.
Zack Orji has joined several of his colleagues who have drummed their support for Tinubu, among others are Eniola Badmus, Jide Kosoko, Oga Bello, Fausat Balogun, Yinka Quadri, Taiwo Hassan, Faithia Williams, Femi Adebayo, Shola Kosoko, Saheed Balogun.
