Nollywood actress, Ronke Oshodi Oke, has said she regrets campaigning for the All Progressives Congress (APC) after what she saw during the EndSARS protest.
Recall that Nigerian youths took to the streets in October 2020 to protest against police brutality and called for the scrapping of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, the actress admitted that she collected money to campaign for the party but said the money she collected wasn’t much. She stated that she lost confidence in the party following the October 2020 incidence.
“I felt APC is going to take Nigeria to the next level. So even while we were campaigning for them, I didn’t collect much. I wasn’t looking at the money, I was looking at what is going to happen later. All that they have been doing, I was thinking eight years cannot fix Nigeria. We all know that. But when the EndSARS protest came up, I was so down.
I was really really down because our governor was saying three different things at the same time. They said they didn’t kill anybody. But if one person died, fifty people have died with that one person. The people that person is feeding, their parents and siblings. I was really down. I regretted working for them.” she said
