Kenneth Okonkwo, Nigeria Nollywood actor  stated that he owes no one any Explanation for supporting President Muhammadu Buhari.

The well known actor who turned politician recently faced fire after he stated that people of the South East part of Nigeria will be in the wilderness if they fail to vote for Buhari in 2019.

Reacting to the heavy backlash he got, Kenneth Okonkwo via an Instagram post stated that he owes no one any apology for his statement.

His words:

My attention has been drawn to some negative comments and curses poured out against my person by some ignorant and satanically motivated persons because of my preference of President Muhammadu Buhari as President of this country for his incorruptible and firm character against enemies of Nigeria.

I have been laughing at their ignorance and wickedness.

First, these men have not offered any alternative party or Presidential aspirants to challenge Buhari or be compared with him.

Second, they claim they are Igbos but forgot that in Igboland, it is a cardinal principle and custom that you must respect someone’s personal opinion and must not curse the person, if what the person simply did was to express his opinion and nothing more, “uche onye adighi ya njo”. Even if a person says anything you don’t like, provided he did not curse you, you are permitted to throw away his words but restrained by custom and tradition not to do anything to him.

Third, the Nigerian constitution said in section 39 that “every person shall be entitled to freedom of expression, including freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart ideas and information without interference”. Also in section 38, the constitution states “every person shall be entitled to freedom of thought, conscience… including freedom to change his … belief, and freedom (either alone or in community with others, and in public or in private) to manifest and propagate his belief in teaching, practice and observance”. God himself created man a free moral agent to hold his thoughts and express his opinions as he wishes. He did not even compel man to worship Him.
So these army of ignorant and wicked men are simply trying to rudely and crudely interfere with my traditional, constitutional and religious rights to freely express myself and hold an opinion, belief and thought as I so wish.

Let me reiterate that I am a follower of President Buhari and believe in his integrity and good intentions to better the lots of Nigerians and that of Ndigbo and I have no apologies for this. Whoever disagrees with me should produce his own strong reasons and better alternatives.

Since these men did not do this, but resorted to curses and vituperations, they have violated the law of nature, man and God.

Here is the verdict of God on them according to Psalm 109 and particularly verses 1-3, 6, 17-21, 25-30.
You know the truth, the worst of Buhari in 8 years will be better than the best of PDP in 16 years.

PDP had 16 years with oil prices very high in-between yet they left us without light (power), without water, without roads, without security, without paying even salaries, indeed without anything.
Whatever is happening today has its root from that regime. This administration came with bail out for states to pay salaries with the price of oil falling drastically. Tackled security and all that and somebody is telling me I should reconsider the past leaders that brought us into this mess. God forbid.

I support Buhari and pray for him. I sincerely don’t care what people like those empty men who make ignorant videos have to say. I don’t want to be a Governor under a corrupt President. At least I can say that the person of Buhari is not corrupt.
Let them call on their gods, let me call on my God and let the God that answereth by fire, let Him be God.

Who cares? When I decided to be an actor, nobody supported me. They could not understand why a man who made a second class upper division in Business Administration in UNN and was wanted to be an assistant Lecturer, could opt to be an Actor. But my God was with me and I succeeded. Today, I have decided to go this political line and I guarantee you I will succeed irrespective of what unfortunate ignorant men will say. By the grace of God, watch me and watch where I am going. Onu kwuru njo ga emeche kwue mma.

Sharing is caring!
