With every choice, every decision, and every step I take for the rest of my life, I will honor you. 19 years without you is hard, and it probably always will be, but I will live this life for you momma. Continue to rest on ALHAJA i miss you dearly as I type this in tears”.

If Tinubu wins, let if be known that Buhari didn’t help him win, Nigerians faith in him made it happen

Eniola Badmus, a Nollywood actress, has come under fire yet again for her strong support for APC Presidential Candidate Bola Tinubu.

According to Eniola Badmus, Tinubu will win the election not because his party is the ruling party, but because Nigerians believe in him personally.

Taking to her Instagram page, Eniola Badmus: “Let it be known that if Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu wins this election, it’s not because he’s party is the ruling party.

It’s because of the faith Nigerians have in him personally. While Tinubu can boast that he was instrumental in PMB becoming president, PMB can not say he’s been instrumental in achieving Tinubu’s presidency. No one should later say Tinubu won because he’s party is in power. He is fighting his battle himself.”
