Ronke Oshodi Oke Laments Campaigning For APC

Ronke Bello

Veteran actress, Ibironke Ojo-Anthony, better known as Ronke Oshodi Oke, has expressed regrets for campaigning for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The actress spoke of her regrets on media personality, Chude’s chat show, accusing the ruling party of failing Nigerians.

She said she campaigned for the party pro-bono but it failed the people and poorly handled the EndSARS protest.

In October 2020, Nigerian youths protested against the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), a unit of the Nigeria Police Force.

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.”
