Veteran Yoruba actor, Alhaji Kareem Adepoju, better known as Baba Wande, has sent his congratulatory message to the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari on his recent victory at the March 28 presidential poll in the country.
The actor also hailed President Goodluck Jonathan for conceding defeat to Buhari.
“President Jonathan has set a good example for them to follow. I like the way he just let it go without sponsoring some people to foment trouble. It shows how great a man he is and I respect him for that.
“Many were thinking prior to the election that if either of the major presidential candidates lost, there would be trouble and Nigeria would boil.
“But see how President Jonathan just doused the tension. Even those who would have taken up arms to defend him were surprised. So, now that the President has shown he is a peaceful man, the PDP too should allow peace to reign. It’s by peace that Nigeria can achieve its potential. Whatever part they want to play in this new dispensation, let them play it peacefully,” he told Punch.
But what the actor cannot understand why he is yet to enjoy the intervention fund earmarked for the industry by the President.
He urged Buhari imitate Jonathan and support the entertainment industry.
