Nollywood actress, Kate Henshaw has reacted following her decision to host a fundraising dinner for Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma.
It happened that Uzodinma, who is seeking re-election on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), held a fundraising dinner on Thursday, the same day the Supreme Court affirmed President Bola Tinubu as the winner of the 2023 election and dismissed the appeals of his major contenders Peter Obi of Labour Party and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Kate and her colleague, Okey Bakassi, anchored the event, incurring some Nigerians to take to their social media platforms and air their displeasure.
Reacting to the attacks online, the movie star, in a post via X, on Friday morning, backed her action, stressing the latest development would not obstruct her from saying the truth about governance in Nigeria.
She wrote: “Someone called me this morning to check the X app. I was invited to host a fundraiser alongside my colleague. I accepted. My prerogative.
“What is the noise about? The difference btw you and I is that I will still speak my truth as I see fit. End of.”
