I’ll run for president in 2023 – Hanks Anuku

VETERAN actor Hanks Anuku has assured Nigerians he is in good medical condition and may contest for president in 2023.

The controversial actor was reacting to the viral videos of himself looking unkempt and roaming the streets in Asaba and Benin City.

The actor also said that nothing was wrong with him and that he was doing just fine.

Speaking today, the actor said he is not what people think he is.

“I will never be what they say I am because I am more significant than that. I am in Asaba at the moment, and I’m doing ok.

“I am alive, sane, strong, blessed and wealthy. I will be contesting as President of Nigeria,” he said.

When asked what political party he would align with, his close associate, Nonso Ofole, said, “We’ll announce that in due course in the appropriate dispensation. For now, we’re rooting for Peter Obi’s presidency”.

The actor cannot, however, contest for president in this dispensation as the deadline for parties to choose their candidates has passed.  

Actress Iheme Nancy had alleged that Anuku’s mental condition was deteriorating.

On a lengthy post on her verified Instagram page on Tuesday night, Iheme slammed her senior colleague, Shan George for covering it up when a video of him went viral on Monday.

The filmmaker revealed that she has been trying to keep calm and mind her business since the news broke out, but her conscience wouldn’t let her be.

She confirmed that Anukus’ condition isn’t a secret to most Asaba resident and actors as many have seen him in different odd locations looking unkempt.
