Bimbo Akintola, a well-known Nollywood actress, has explained why she supported Bola Ahmed Tinubu as President of Nigeria.
To elect Nigeria’s President and Vice President, the 2023 Presidential Election was held on February 25, 2023.
Bola Tinubu, a former Lagos state governor and candidate for the All Progressives Congress, won the contested election with 36.61% of the vote and 8,794,726 total votes.
Akintola has high expectations of Bola Tinubu’s new government and is confident the film industry will receive special treatment.
She said: “The Lagos state government has given grants to actors and producers. I was part of the presidential campaign committee. Asiwaju included actors and musicians in the committee. His wife is also a big fan of art. She even told us (actors) about all the movies she had seen us in. I have nothing against other people (candidates) but I would rather go to someone whose track record I know.
“I want to know that the person has worked before and will work again. I believe that in the next Dispensation many things in the industry will be different. Tinubu works with people he knows to be intelligent, intellectual, and performers. He has a think tank around him. He never works alone and Nigeria’s problems cannot be solved by one person.”
