Seyi Law, a popular comedian, has apologized publicly to Nigerians who have been insulted by his support for President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
This comes after Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress, or APC, was proclaimed the victor of the presidential election in 2023. Seyi Law, who took to Instagram, expressed his delight at how enthusiastic people are about their favourite candidates.
He criticized the electoral violence, but stressed that Nigerians should not create animosity and hatred for one another. The comedy act stated that he has mixed feelings about the people’s outrage, rather than his favored candidate’s political success.
“My fellow Nigerians, I’m glad you’re as enthusiastic about your favourite candidates as I am. That is the case.
way politics should be. However, hatred and bitterness towards each other shouldn’t have a place between us.
“You might not see things the way I see it. That doesn’t mean I’m right and you are wrong. It just means that we are different. If your candidates had won, I would have prayed and worked for their successes and mine.
“I apologise to those offended by my support. I seriously condemn all the violence across Nigeria. I have mixed feelings for your genuine anger and not for my candidate’s winning. I, however, pray that Nigerians’ lives get better“.
