Popular Nollywood actor Alexx Ekubo has joined the growing list of celebrities calling for more action from the federal government of Nigeria on the social media in the wake of a series of unfortunate events that have led to countless deaths in the country.
Here is what the frustrated actor wrote on the social media over the weekend.
“Well I’m tired, I’m done pretending, so dear World, here are a few truths about about Nigeria your giant of Africa,” he wrote.
“I once likened Nigeria to the proverbial ‘Small dog, with a big name’ after filming in Cameroon for eight days without experiencing power outage. They called me unpatriotic, they asked for my head on a plate, they called me a sellout but the truth is since I was born, I have never experienced steady power supply in my country. It is important to note I turned 32 in April.”
He added that an arm of the police called FSARS, harasses, bullies and extorts innocent and harmless citizens.
“Herdsmen go into a community killing everyone including harmless women and children and the government of the day won’t declare a state of emergency or move a muscle.
“We just lost innocent lives as a result of a tanker explosion on Otedola bridge, they still won’t do anything to change traffic/motoring safety…
“Pls nobody should tell me to #PrayForNigeria. INEC would not count your prayer points. I’ve been praying all my life and nothing has changed. I want to give Heaven a break. This is a call to action, we need to get our PVC & end this before it ends us.”
