Netizens are currently dragging veteran Nollywood actress Joke Silva for joining the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the women's rally to campaign for the party's presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
The actress joined other APC female members as they marched at Lagos Island, CMS and adjoining areas, singing and pledging allegiance to the candidature of Tinubu/Shettima.
She shared videos from the moment on her Instagram page on Monday but locked her comment section.
This did not stop online users who were upset by her action from attacking her on Twitter.
See some reactions below:

GLO recruited the whole of Nollywood as ambassadors. But, we all know the market leaders.
Lose no sleep over Joke Silva. She is an actress. She just collected appearance fee.

I’m really happy Joke Silva closed her comments and other Tinubu supporters are in the closet and afraid to publicly support him/APC. This means we’re getting somewhere.— Dr. Ann Amuta (@amuta_ann) October 3, 2022
There is shame in supporting greed, wickedness and failure, and I’m happy they recognize this.
Dear Joke Silva, history and posterity wouldn't forget the position you took. You have children, they as well would have children. May the good Lord reward everyone according to their works, unto the third and fourth generations...— MLS Odogwu (@MLS_ODG) October 3, 2022
So Joke Silva left Olu Jacobs to come and walk under the sun for someone she's stronger than for free?— Harmony.Sol ? (@TwittHarmony) October 3, 2022

Lagosians, Collect your money!?
"Nobody should drag Joke Silva, Mercy Johnson, Rahama Sadau, & other celebs in Tinubu's Women Campaign Team" ??— Benkingsley Nwashara (@Benking452) October 2, 2022
My life and my child's life are at stake. So if you think you have the right to support support rubbish, I have the right also drag you and call you out.
Everyone can not support Peter Obi. Joke Silva can support Tinubu if she wants no problem. She’s securing her bag; We are securing our future. May the best ‘Securer’ win.— Chlorpheniramine #OBIdients ?? (@VictorIsrael_) October 3, 2022
You saw the last 7 years of the Buhari Administration and the decline in our quality of life as Nigerians.— NK£M #PeterObi2023 (@Nkemchor_) October 3, 2022
Joke Silva has lived out her best years so she has absolutely nothing to lose.
It's the future of Young Nigerians that are being toyed with.
My Advise - VOTE WISELY
Joke Silva de campaign for her pocket. You campaign for your future .— Ogechikero (@Ogechikero) October 3, 2022
The march comes on the heels of Joke Silva's inclusion as a member of the women’s wing of Tinubu’s presidential campaign council.
She will serve as the council's committee chair for the creative and entertainment sector.
Other committee members include Toyin Adegbola, Esther Wright, Rose Odika and Hadiza Kabara, among others.
Other actresses co-opted into the council are Mercy Johnson and Rahama Sadau.
While Mercy Johnson is yet to make any comment concerning the list, Rahama Sadau has distanced herself from the appointment.
