popular Nigerian singer and activist, Charles Oputa, aka Charly Boy, has said he is still in Nigeria despite his preferred presidential candidate in the 2023 elections, Peter Obi of the Labour Party not emerging president because he is “hopeful.”
Before the 2023 presidential elections, Charly Boy had vowed to relocate from Nigeria if either Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, or Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, emerged as president.
Tinubu was declared the winner of the February 25th presidential election and was subsequently sworn in as president on May 29th.
Months after Tinubu’s swearing-in, Charly Boy said he is still in the country because Peter Obi renewed his hope.
He made this known via his Twitter handle on Friday.
“I remember over 1yr ago, I bin talk say, if PDP or APC win election, I go just pack my tins commot Nigeria.
“Today am still staying put in Nigeria because I am hopeful in the face of all the Potopoto I see.
“Thank you, Peter Obi, for renewing my HOPE. God bless you,” he wrote.
