Veteran Nollywood actor Zack Orji has endorsed the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
In a two-minute clip posted on social media, Mr Orji, who is also the vice-president of Ambassadors for Voice for Change, described Mr Tinubu as a chief crusader for democratic consolidation in Nigeria.
The filmmaker further said that having lived in Lagos for over 40 years, he has known him as a man who stood for justice, equity, and national cohesion.
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.
“I know that when he becomes the president of this country, he will turn the economy around for the better.”
