I regret campaigning for APC – Actress Ronke Oshodi Oke

ACTRESS Ibironke Ojo-Anthony, popularly known as Ronke Oshodi Oke, has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).of abysmal failure in the last eight years.

The veteran filmmaker said she campaigned for the party but it failed and regretted supporting it after the ugly experience of the EndSARS protest.

The actress disclosed this during a recent interview with a media personality, Chude Jideonwo.

Oshod0-Oke also stated that she was disappointed in the actions of Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, during the protest.

The 48-year-old film actress said the “governor was saying three different things” and claiming nobody died.

She said, “I love APC. I’m a fan of APC, body and soul. I felt APC was going to take Nigeria to the next level.”

“So even while we were campaigning for them, I didn’t collect much. I wasn’t looking at the money, I was looking at what was going to happen later.

“All what they have been doing, I was thinking eight years cannot fix Nigeria. We all know that. But when the EndSARS protest came up, I was so down.

“I was really really down because our governor was saying three different things at the same time. They said they didn’t kill anybody.

“But if one person died, fifty people have died with that one person. The people that person is feeding, are their parents, and siblings.

“Before they get themselves and get back on their feet might take five years. It is a thing of the mind. Secondly, there were so many injuries.

“I saw some guys that could not use their legs, some people had bullets in their bodies. So many injuries. I will not say I was mad but I was really down. I regret working for them for that reason alone.”
