Veteran Nollywood actor, Kenneth Okonkwo has maintained that he does not regret supporting President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the last election.
Okonkwo said this while responding to a comment on his Instagram page after he shared a video of him struggling right off the road with cattle in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.
Sharing the dramatic video clip, Okonkwo called for the abolition of open grazing as a way for the country to move forward.
‘This is why ranching is both desirable and inevitable. How can humans and animals be struggling for a right of way in the Federal Capital City of Abuja?
‘We must move on to the 21st-century system of animal husbandry to reduce tensions between passers-by, commuters, farmers and herdsmen. Have a great week ahead and God bless.’
Okonkwo, however, got trolled after sharing the video for campaigning for President Muhammadu Buhari in the previous elections.
A follower @Azi_bukaz wrote: ‘You campaigned relentlessly for Buhari’s re-election right? You never see anything.’
Responding, Okonkwo said he does not regret campaigning for President Buhari after seeing projects in the South Eastern region of the country.
He said: ‘Yes I supported Buhari and I stand by my decision. When I see that the Second Niger Bridge is about to be completed when I see that runway at Enugu Airport has been expanded to accommodate international flights, when I see that Enugu-PH express roads are being rehabilitated when I remember all the other things Buhari had done for the South East and remember that PDP was there for 16 years and did nothing for us, I am proud of the decision I took and I have no apologies for that. God bless you for writing.’
