Controversial Nigerian actor cum politician, Yul Edochie has contradicted skit-maker, Debo Adedayo better known as Mr. Macaroni’s post, warning Nigerians against collecting money from politicians.
In a tweet he posted earlier today, Mr. Macaroni cautioned that politicians offer money to voters to manipulate their votes. The skit maker and actor further claimed that those elected officials who gave bribes didn’t carry out their duties when they got to office.
In his words:
“Any Politician offering you money in exchange for your vote is not going to serve you. They are only investing. If they get into office, they will loot the Nation’s treasury which rightfully belongs to the people.
Do not vote in thieves and looters!
They are destroyers.”
Reacting to his tweet, Yul Edochie said he has run for office in the past, and from his experience, citizens usually demand money from politicians, and they had to hand it over to the electorates. He wrote:
“I used to think it’s the politicians that offer money until I joined politics and ran for office. My eyes opened. It’s mainly the people that demand money from the politicians and put them in a tight corner where they must find money by all means to share or fail.”
