Actress Toyin Abraham has revealed why she loves presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Ashiwaju Bola Tinubu, just months after she denied campaigning for him.
The 40-year-old made the declaration on Friday, January 13 during an appearance on ‘Your View’, a popular breakfast show on TVC.
Toyin Abraham revealed that Tinubu has done a lot of good for the entertainment industry which made him earn her love.
The thespian who was recently criticized for her ‘inappropriate’ hug with skit-maker, Sydney Talker, said she might vote for the former Lagos State governor although she has not decided who to vote for. In her words:
“I love Asiwaju and I’m speaking about myself. I love him, I might vote for him because I love him. I’ve not decided but I’m just saying it. And because of the things he has done for my industry.”
Toyin Abraham further stated that she was not influencing anyone with her choice and that she was speaking from her own perspective. The mother of one said:
“I’m not going to use my own selfish interest to lead others. He has been a wonderful man to my industry, he has been there for people and my industry. I am speaking from my own perspective. He is a good man.”
Her public declaration comes months after she denied campaigning for Tinubu on social media.
The actress in October 2022 posted a video of Tinubu riding on a bicycle workout machine to show fitness and debunk death rumours.
Captioning the post, she wrote:
“What else does Tinubu need to do to prove that the is not dying today? I am not campaigning for any candidate, just jumping on trending topic. I am just a responsible citizen with PVC and power to choose who to vote for.”
The post generated a lot of backlash which led her to ultimately delete the post.
