SHETTIMA: Nollywood Actor, Okonkwo Dumps APC Party

Kenneth Okonkwo, a Nollywood actor, has dumped APC over the choice of Kashim Shettima as the running mate of the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Okonkwo resigned his membership, revealed this in a letter shared on his Instagram page on Monday, 11th of July, 2022.

The Nollywood stating his stances said that he joined the All Progressive Party, APC in the first place to tackle any form of discrimination and social injustice in the country, and as at now, the party is not in line with the ideal.

If Muslims could vote voluntarily for Southern Christian Presidents, it is then a fallacy to insinuate that they cannot accept a Northern Christian Vice-President.
