He said, “Tell all those who write crap about me to stop writing about me and leave me alone. If they wanna act in the movie, they can come to me. I’ve been on set and anyone using those pictures and videos on set to try and destroy my image, may the holy spirit forgive you.”(sic)

While speaking on his presidential bid via a video released on his Instagram page, the Nollywood star said, “November 2022, I am alive, strong, safe, blessed, healthy and good. I am going to continue to represent Nigeria. Vote for Hanks Anuku for president,” he said.
