Nollywood actor Olaiya Igwe has revealed how presidential aspirant Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s wife helped him during his trying times.
He made this known as he gave reasons for going unclad to show his support for the presidential aspirant, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
It would be recalled that the actor shared a video of himself naked on a beach offering prayers for the victory of Tinubu in the 2023 election, which left his fans disappointed.
In his caption, Olaiya revealed that it is his pleasure to support a candidate who truly reflects our values and highest ideals.
He believed that Tinubu would be the best to protect our dreams and fight hard to keep the promise of Nigeria for the next generation.
“It is my pleasure to support a candidate who truly reflects our values and highest ideals. There is one candidate in this election who will protect that dream. One leader who will fight hard to keep the promise of Nigeria for the next generation. And that’s why we must stand up and make Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu the next president of Nigeria.”
Olaiya has clarified the reasons for his action. In a video uploaded by Punch, the actor could be seen in a phone conversation with an unknown person, where he addressed the controversial video.
According to him, Tinubu’s wife, Remi Tinubu, took care of him when he was ill. He disclosed that the senator even offered to fly him out of the country for treatment.
“The time I was sick, Remi called Ajala Jalingo to take me to Ikeja Teaching Hospital that they should take care of me, and on the third day, she called and asked me if I had an American visa, and if I didn’t have a visa, they should quickly arrange it for me. So her husband will now come out for a position, and I won’t support him?”
