Enugu PDP Chieftain Hits Okonkwo Over Attack On Tinubu

Enugu PDP Chieftain Hits Okonkwo Over Attack On Tinubu

A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Josef Onoh has lashed out at Nollywood actor and stalwart of the Labour Party, Kenneth Okonkwo for his recent statement on Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Onoh who doubles as the South East Spokesman for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Candidate said that Okonkwo should grow up from his movie roles in the past.

Okonkwo had alleged that the APC presidential candidate was incoherent in his statements and had blasphemed both the Bible and the Koran at different times.

However, Onoh asked the actor to grow beyond his 1991 debut movie role in ‘Living in Bondage’ where he pitiably told his friend, Paulo, that he would have explained things well to him on the demands of ritual money making before his initiation.

Onoh said: “The character, Kenneth Okonkwwo, in his audition as an actor has confused the basic fundamental principles of politicking to represent acting.

"His auditioning into politics started in 2014 and since then has auditioned for different political parties such as the PDP, the APC and now the Labour Party and in all these auditions; he exhibited his poor stage performances.

“Whereas Asiwaju is busy galvanizing for votes, entertainers such as Actor Kenneth Okonkwo have been conducting auditions for another movie role, but politics is not a movie role.

"His claim that Asiwaju is becoming a demigod is because Asiwaju himself spends time canvassing for votes and the amount of votes he has garnered; including his expanding supports in the south east are what have beclouded Actor Kenneth Okonkwo’s vision.

“While Asiwaju is still testing the microphone, Okonkwo is still trying to study his scripts.

"With our 40 million registered members, 22 sitting governors, absolute majority in the National Assembly, our candidate ranks as the best governor in the last 23 years.

"We can only wish Okonkwo well but should understand that the Asiwaju presidential campaign is not a movie audition and it’s for serious-minded people.

“Kenneth Okonkwo should remember his famous line in 'Living in Bondage' where he delivered, ‘Paulo, you are my friend and you didn’t explain things well for me’, which is the reason I’m now explaining things well for him, that Asiwaju come February 2023 will become Nigeria’s next president and when that time comes, I wouldn’t want Andy to come and say to me that I didn’t not explain this thing well to him.”
