The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has reacted to the statement by the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai, that he (Obi) was acting Nollywood and could not win the presidential election.
Replying, the former Anambra State Governor said he would rather work hard to improve the entertainment industry.
Obi gave the reply on Sunday when he appeared on Arise Television’s ‘Sunday Show’ programme.
El-Rufai had while featuring on a TVC programme last week dismissed Obi’s chances in the forthcoming presidential election.
Obi said he would focus on the Nollywood if elected president, calling on Nigerian actors to support him since El-Rufai had tagged him as one.
He said, “I thank El-Rufai for what he said, at least he gave me some percentages; I’ll work hard to improve on that. The entertainment industry is one of the engines that will develop us as a nation, I’ll focus on that and the Nollywood.
“And since he said I’m an actor, I’m calling on all those in the entertainment industry, including the Nollywood, to support me.”
