In solidarity with President Bola Tinubu, Yul Edochie, who has named himself ‘Tinubu Boy’, Zack Orji, and Benedict Johnson among other Nollywood actors on Wednesday stormed the venue of the presidential election petition tribunal in Abuja.
The actors were in court as it delivered judgement in petitions
brought before it by Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Peter Obi of Labour Party and Allied Peoples Movement, APM, against the declaration of Tinubu as president.
They were seen seated in the courtroom full of smiles as the tribunal began to strike out petitions against Tinubu.
The actors, who are members of the actors guild of Nigeria, the umbrella body of the Nollywood actors in the country, divided opinion when Orji led a section of the group to endorse Tinubu.
Their decision to pitch tent with Tinubu also divided the actors guild as the major bloc announced their support for Peter Obi.
Yul who has been in the eye of the storm for months on account of his marital problem was an Obi campaigner before dumping the Labour Party candidate for Tinubu.
He switched his allegiance to Tinubu few weeks after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, announced Tinubu as president elect.
