Freedom Okpetoritse Atsepoyi, also known as Mr. Jollof in Nigeria, has admitted that the party in power, the All Progressives Congress, APC, “used and dumped” him.
The Internet sensation from Warri claimed he was an ardent supporter of President Bola Tinubu and the APC before switching to the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) vice presidential candidate for the 2023 elections, Ifeanyi Okowa, after reading a passage in the bible that discussed righting one’s wrongs
Mr.Jollof made fun of Nigerians for the recent increase in petrol prices and other economic difficulties, saying he advised them to quit supporting the APC after defecting but that many people didn’t heed his advice.
He stated this in a video trending on the interview.
Speaking in Pidgin English, Mr Jollof said, “I support Tinubu from the beginning but when I see the tigers wey dey with am and when I see the way say this people they are users. They used me. APC used me.
“But thank God, when I read the book of Luke 15:1-32, I know say the parable of the lost son na when you don commot from your papa house and you don fall short of his glory, you go go back to your papa. I now went back to [Ifeanyi] Okowa. Okowa hugged me and kissed me.
“And come back come tell una say this Tinubu walker, this world before una, I was. But una say I dey talk anyhow. But how far? Who dey buy fuel N617 now? E touch everybody.” (sic)
