Nigerians react to an open letter that Deyemi Okanlawon (Nollywood actor) wrote to Thaddeus Attah of Eti-Osa Labour party, in which he expressed his disgust at the outcome of the election.
Thaddeus defeated Bankole Wellington, aka BankyW, to win the seat. Many Nigerians were surprised at the result. They believed Banky W would win. However, the results came and Thaddeus who is in the same party as Peter Obi won the election.
In an open letter posted on his page today, actor Deyemi Okanlawon congratulated Thaddeus for winning the election, He however pointed out that he voted for Banky W and believes that Banky W would have been the best candidate for the job. He went on to state that prior to his victory at the polls, many people did not know Thaddeus or his antecedents. Deyemi extended an invitation to Thaddeus to join him for a live session this weekend where he will address concerns he and other residents have about the Labour Party representative.
Many Nigerians however took to Deyemi’s comment section to blast him. They argue that the letter is condescending to Thaddeus. According to them, Deyemi and many others have seemingly written Thaddeus off despite not giving him an opportunity to prove himself.
