Actress Ronke Oshodi-Oke, also known as Ibironke Ojo-Anthony, has expressed her dissatisfaction with the All Progressives Congress (APC), which is currently in power, and has accused the party of failing the populace over the past eight years.
After witnessing the #EndSARS protest, the actress expressed regret for endorsing and supporting the party.
In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, she disclosed these details.
Ronke also expressed her dissatisfaction with how Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu handled protests.
The governor’s statements regarding the protests, particularly his denial of any deaths, drew criticism from the 48-year-old.
She said, “I love APC. I’m a fan of APC, body and soul. I felt APC was going to take Nigeria to the next level. So even while we were campaigning for them, I didn’t collect much. I wasn’t looking at the money, I was looking at what was going to happen later.
“All what they have been doing, I was thinking eight years cannot fix Nigeria. We all know that. But when the #EndSARS protest came up, I was so down.”
She added, “I was really really down because our governor was saying three different things at the same time. They said they didn’t kill anybody.
“But if one person died, 50 people have died with that one person. The people that person is feeding are their parents and siblings.
“Before they get themselves and get back on their feet might take five years. It is a thing of the mind. Secondly, there were so many injuries.
“I saw some guys that could not use their legs, some people had bullets in their bodies. So many injuries. I will not say I was mad but I was really down. I regret working for them for that reason alone.”
