Nigeria actor, Charles Inojie, said Nigerians should not vote based on ethnicity or region in the forthcoming presidential election. He noted that voting based on ethnicity or religion was a thing of the past.

He made this statement while reacting to a viral video by Godwin Obaseki, Edo State governor, who talks about the Obidient movement.

Mr Obaseki said in a video that Nigerian are no longer interested in the ruling party leadership of the APC and PDP but are now part of the ” Obidient Movement”

Mr Inojie said the movement is getting more attention. “The Obidient movement is hitting nearer home. It is now common knowledge that the only platform we need to reclaim Nigeria is the common pain that the ruling class has inflicted on the average Nigerian over the years.

“Poverty and lack in the face of plenty, economic misery in a land of surplus or palpable fear of insecurity in supposed peace time have no respect for religion or ethnicity. A poor Nigerian in Agenebode is a poor Nigerian in Sabon-Garri.

“OBJ’s presidency did not make the people of Owu, Abeokuta or Sango Otte in Ogun state the most prosperous Nigerians. GEJ’s presidency did not make Otueke the Eldorado of Nigeria. PMB is probably not even as popular in his home state as he is in mine.

“Bottomline is, if you are still thinking of voting across tribal or religious divides, you are living in the past.

“The Obidient generation has since moved past those primordial considerations. They want the best man for the job irrespective of where he is from or what religion he practices.

“They have elected to commit their votes to the man who can guarantee a secured future for them. They prefer a Nigeria where the son of nobody can become somebody without knowing anybody.”
