Economic Hardship: Kenneth Okonkwo slams Tinubu, says Nigeria is not Lagos




Popular Nollywood actor and spokesperson for the Labour Party Presidential Campaign, Dr. Kenneth Okonkwo, has criticised President Bola Tinubu’s administration.

He said Nigeria is not Lagos where the former Lagos State Governor sits and decrees things and expect them to work that way.

The actor turned politician stated this on Mic On Podcast anchored by Channels Television broadcaster Seun Okinbaloye.

In the video snippet which was shared on the broadcaster’s X handle on Thursday, Okonkwo said he thought that former President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime was the worst until he realised that the current administration surpassed the former President in nine months.

Okonkwo said, “Anarchy looms in Nigeria. Nigeria is not Lagos where you sit down and decree things and you expect it to work that way.

“You don’t compare gold with carrots. Initially, I thought Buhari’s regime was going to be the worst but in nine months, this government has surpassed it.

“You know what it means when you place your children in order of protocol before ministers of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. What do you call that eyesore? You are allowing somebody to come to Aso Rock sitting on the Coat of Arms to call our military men thieves.

“This government in terms of appointment is just concentrating, not even on the South West but on the Lagos axis of the ‘Jagabanic’ prodigies tainted with ‘Emilokan’ philosophies.”
