Nollywood actress, Bimbo Akintola, has declared her support for the presidential ambition of the All Progressives Congress candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
According to her, she’s supporting Tinubu because she sees him as a locator.
Akintola declared this when she appeared on TVC’s Your View programme.
She said, “I am with the PCC, I’m working for Asiwaju, and I’m also with CGI (Connecting Grassroots Initiative), which MC Oluomo started.
“What we are doing is going door to door. First and foremost, Asiwaju built talent; he found people who can do things, look at his cabinet when he was governor; those are the names we call now.”
“We see Fashola, Osinbanjo, Wale Edun, and they are the so-called young names we call in politics, and they all came from where? It’s because Asiwaju sourced them and brought them on.
“We would be excited about the changes that would happen in this county
Bimbo also extolled Mr Tinubu’s generosity towards her industry and colleagues, which she said long began before he declared for president.
“I know he has a vision for Nigeria, which is crucial; where we are in the world right now, if you know you don’t have a picture, you shouldn’t try to serve. He has an idea.
“Tinubu has supported so many people, our industry for one; you don’t need to know him to get support.
“When, we lost Moji Olaiya, and she wasn’t in the country; he flew her in; he paid for everything. So many actors have received help from him, and he doesn’t know them from anywhere,” she said.
Asked about her colleague Funke Akindele’s Lagos state deputy governorship bid, Bimbo gave a vague response.
“I think more and more people who feel they have a service to give to this country need to step up.
