Ngozi Orji, Nollywood actress and wife of popular actor Zack Orji, has declared her support for Presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi after a video of her husband endorsing APC presidential candidate Bola Tinubu went viral.
Ngozi Orji endorsed Obi in an Instagram post on Sunday, after the latter visited the Revival Church Assembly headed by Apostle Anselm Madubuko.
In the caption of the video she posted, Ngozi Orji declared herself “Obidient.”
‘Obidient’ is a nickname of supporters of the presidential aspiration of the former Anambra State governor, Obi.
Sharing a video and photos of Peter Obi at the church service, Ngozi wrote: “It was An Awesome Time Today. That Moment Our Apostle General Anselm Madubuko Introduced H E Sir Peter Obi. What an Awesome Way To Wrap up AZUSA 20 Conference. God bless you Sir for Coming. We are OBIdient. We Move.”
Just in case you missed it, Zack Orji was the latest Nigerian celebrity and actor to publicly declare his support for the candidacy of the All Progressives Congress presidential flag bearer, Bola Tinubu.
In a two-minute clip posted on social media, Mr Orji, vice president of the Ambassadors for Voice for Change, said his support for Tinubu is both experiential and personal.
The actor said that having lived in Lagos for over 40 years, he knows that Mr Tinubu is a chief crusader for the consolidation of democracy in Nigeria.
He said: “I have always known him as a man who stands for equity, justice, fair play and national cohesion.
“In his time as governor of Lagos state, he ran an all-inclusive government drawing people from different ethnic extractions into the executive council as decision makers to run the affairs of the state.
“People who came from different ethnic extractions were allowed to be part of the decision-making of Lagos State. I know with a high degree of certainty that on a national scale when he becomes the president of Nigeria, he will do likewise.
“This is what we need in this country. Though we differ in tribe and tongue, charity and brotherhood, we stand tall and proud.
The actor then concluded: “I know that when he becomes the president of this country, he will turn the economy around for the better.”
