Nollywood actress Etinosa Idemudia has shared her thoughts on the 2023 elections, which took place in Nigeria on February 25th and March 18th, 2023.
Creebhills reported in sections on how the presidential and gubernatorial elections played out across the country. According to a series of eyewitness reports and videos that circulated on social media, the election, dubbed “Intimidation” by Netizens, was far from free and fair.
Apart from the news of electoral violence and thuggery that flooded the media, tribalism played a significant role in the disenfranchisement of citizens who wanted to exercise their civic duty. In Lagos, for example, thugs allegedly sent by the ruling party, the All Progressive Party (APC), prevented the majority of Igbos from voting. They also prevented Yorubas, who they claimed resembled Igbos, from voting.
Scores of citizens were reported to have sustained various degrees of injuries while some were alleged to have been shot dead as thugs cart away ballot boxes at polling.
Reacting to all that took place during the election, Etinosa while sharing her thoughts aloud took a swipe at the issue of tribalism. She said with all she witnessed, Nigerians shouldn’t cry fowl about racism because it is what some people practice under disguise.
She wrote: “After all I have witnessed in this country, No Nigerian should ever cry about racism cos y’all … Nah. Y’all are the real MVPs. Keep it up”
