Actor Bob Manuel Declares Victory For APGA In Anambra Elections
Nollywood actor, Bob-Manuel Udokwu, says the All Progressives Grand Alliance is already celebrating the possible victory of Willie Obiano at yesterday's Anambra State governorship election.
Udokwu said in Awka, after voting, that the celebration became necessary because most Nollywood actors hail from the state and most of them cast their votes for Obiano.
He added that most of them saw the need for continuity and cast their votes for the APGA candidate.
He dismissed fears that Nollywood stars from the state voted for other candidates at the last minute, having honoured their invitations for parleys just before the election.
“Some people play to the gallery, and some people answer calls for inducements. If that was the case, then it does not imply that most of them decided to change their minds at the eleventh hour,” said Udokwu.
He asked, “Do any of them (the other candidates) plan for the industry? I don't think so. Otherwise, why didn't they invite them (Nollywood practitioners) for the dinners before now?”
“For them to have invited them for dinners hurriedly organised, it shows the desperation. They just want to be seen taking pictures with my colleagues – the Nollywood stars.
“Every one of us is wise, it would not pay to vote against APGA government that has strive to ensure the growth of the industry.”
Udokwu said continuity was what was needed in Anamnbra State.
