Zack Orji Receives Backlash After Endorsing Tinubu’s Presidential Bid
Nollywood actor Zack Orji has been criticized for his selection of the presidential candidate.
Veteran Nollywood actor Zack Orji has been insulted for endorsing Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s campaign for president.
The actor shared a video on social media in which he analyzed the presidential contender in his opinion.
One of his points was that, while Tinubu was Lagos’ governor, he promoted several persons of all races.
If Bola Tinubu was given the chance to establish himself as a deserving leader, Zack Orji guaranteed a better future.
However, many people found his viewpoint unpleasant and criticized his selection of the presidential candidate as being motivated by self-interest.

Zack Orji supported Tinubu, it is right but Yoruba supporting Peter Obi is called betrayer to Yoruba race, awon akindanini oponu afofugbemu alainironu olee oole osinwin eniyan. Shey Tinubu self no betrayed Yoruba race? Go and verify… Am 💯% OBIdient and will be YUSful.

As Nollywood refused to give Benedict Johnson a role in years, Tinubu has given him one 😭.
You people gave Zack Orji only 30 seconds in Blood sisters and now Tinubu has given him almost 10 minutes.
And you say money doesn’t answer all things ???

You people should be looking for Igbos that have influence in SE to this for you and not Zack orji that doesn't go home.
What is the need?

I’m not surprised at Zack Orji at all. Someone who after getting poisoned by Liz Benson for many years in the nollywood can only boast of a 1998 Jeep, a self Con apartment in Ago palace Lagos and an unending supply of bleaching cream. This man is after his stomach. Too bad..

Zack orji did a video and was advocating for SE presidency and all of a sudden switched . You think it’s ordinary and it an act of patriotism ? Common . Ye she has right to support anyone but should not have participated in making that video. It’s an act of betrayal. Honestly

Zack Orji can support who he wants. He is an actor. Tom Cruise can even support Tinubu. But on D-Day, those affected by Poverty, Boko Haram, Herdsmen, N700 to $1, ASUU Strikes, Mad inflation, Fuel Scarcity, National Grid Collapses, etc, will vote for Peter Obi. Am I making sense?
