Zack Orji, the ace actor, has reiterated his support for Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2023 election.
Orji spoke during an in-house meeting held ahead of the official commencement of the electoral campaign season.
Present at the event were some actors, political associates, and members of Tinubu’s campaign team.
Orji said he is fully committed to supporting Tinubu in realising his presidential ambition.
“Our father, our leader, the one who inspires, we’re proud and honoured to be here today and to be associated with your vision,” the film star could be heard saying in Tinubu’s presence.
While endorsing Tinubu, Orji earlier argued that APC presidential candidate ran an all-inclusive government during his tenure as the governor of Lagos.

He hailed the politician while describing him as “the kind of leader” Nigeria’s economy needs for positive change.
“My support for Bola Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu is both experiential and personal. I have lived in Lagos for over 40 years. I have always known this man as a chief crusader of the democratic consolidation of Nigeria,” Orji had said.
“I have always known him as a man who stands for justice, equity, fair play, and national cohesion.
“In his time as the governor of Lagos state, he ran an all-inclusive government, drawing people from different ethnic extractions into the executive council as decision makers to run the affairs of the state.
“There is nothing like this. People who came from different ethnic extractions were given an opportunity to be part of the decision-making of Lagos state.
“I know with a high degree of certainty that, on a national scale when he becomes the president of Nigeria, he will do likewise.”
