Nigerian comic skit maker, actor and activist, Debo Adedayo also known as Mr Macaroni has cried out over several threats to his life for not supporting a ‘particular presidential candidate’.
The skit maker who earlier stated that he will continue to speak against injustice and oppression in Nigeria took to Twitter to pen down a lengthy note about some threats he has been receiving for not drumming his support for a particular presidential candidate, whose identity he refused to disclose.
Narrating his most recent ordeal, Mr Macaroni revealed that he has received different threats including cyber bullying via different online attacks and tribal propaganda, from some party members and supporters of the certain presidential candidate because they feel he is against their choice.
”I went to visit my mother 2 weeks ago. I was giving out money to some people in the neighborhood as I always do anytime I go home. A woman walked up to me and asked why I am against a particular candidate.. I said I am not against anyone. All I want is for a better country.
And that can only happen when we vote in good leaders. The next thing she said is that I should better watch myself because they know where my people live. I asked if that was a threat and she continued saying all sorts. My sister and manager were with me and I have a video!
I can go on and on about different threats that I have received from some party members or supporters of a presidential candidate because they somehow believe that I am against their choice. Cyber bullying via different online attacks and tribal propaganda.
There is so much dishonesty going on and it gets worse by the day. But my messaging will never change! Nigerians have suffered enough!!! Look around you and look at the serious challenges we are facing as a people.
There’s no Messiah anywhere! However, to stand a chance for a better Nation come 2023, we must elect the most suitable options to occupy positions of leadership in the country. We must individually analyze these candidates by examining their past records, their current state of mind, their capacity and capability; Vis-à-vis the respective positions they wish to occupy.
Do your research and vote for the right candidates. I rest my case. For now!”
