Former presidential aide, Reno Omokri has praised veteran actress, Joke Silva for supporting the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Naija News recalls that on Monday, Silva, Foluke Daramola and others joined the APC women’s rally in support of Tinubu. A few days ago the veteran was announced as a member of the women’s wing of Tinubu’s presidential campaign council. She was given the responsibility of handling the Creative and Entertainment Industry committee of the council. During the rally, Silva had posted a video of herself with the Lagos First Lady, Ibijoke Sanwo-Olu amongst others dancing and waving brooms. However, many Nigerians berated the actress for her actions. Some people argued that she stoped her ailing husband from taking movie roles but sees nothing wrong with supporting Tinubu whose frail health has remained a topic of discussion online. Reacting to the backlash from Nigerians, Omokri opined that the Nollywood veteran has the right to support whomever she pleases. He wrote, “We love you @JokeSilva. Never mind these people. Those that commend you are more than those that condemn you. You have a right to support Tinubu, and though I support Atiku, I can still say that you and Olu Jacobs are a credit to Nigeria. Ignore them and bloom! #TableShaker.”
