April 4, 2015- Omoni Oboli & Lancelot Imasuen Celebrate Jonathan’s Defeat, Say He’s A Hero
In a recent chat with Saturday Beats, Nollywood ctress Omoni Oboli, who may be regarded as a personal friend of the President as she showed her movie, Being Mrs. Elliot, in Aso Rock, said she has no single regret for voting Jonathan.
“I can never regret anything I do. I stood for what I believe in, not because of financial gain. At the end of the day, the victory goes to Nigeria. This election showed true democracy and I am proud of the man that I supported. He is a hero. He conceded graciously and that is the trait of a true leader. This is democracy and nobody should work against me because I supported Jonathan.”
Film director Lancelot Imasuen, who before now had not hidden the fact that Jonathan was his favoured candidate, said he would rather keep his opinion about the election to himself.
“It is just that I want to use the opportunity to celebrate President Goodluck Jonathan for his uprightness. If a man that has been tagged as weak and clueless demonstrated something we thought was almost impossible in Nigeria, I eternally want to celebrate him. I will never regret campaigning for Jonathan and if this election is done again, I will still campaign for him. Why would I regret supporting him? I was not coerced or bribed into it. I was not given money, I was convinced and I still stand by my conviction. If that would make me face the international court, I am ready to face it. While supporting Jonathan, I did not kill anybody; I was only using the word of mouth to convince people.”
