Famous comedian, Oluwaseyitan Aletile, professionally known as Seyi Law, has cleared the air regarding claims that he campaigned for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the last election.

Seyi Law who recently sat down for a chat on The Honest Bunch podcast, denied asking Nigerians to vote for his candidate, adding that it isunjust for people to keep dragging him over the economic hardship.

According to the entertainer, he campaigned for the president due to his track record of leadership as the governor of Lagos State.

The controversial comedian added that he is always in talks with the son of the president, Seyi Tinubu, over some of the issues Nigerians are facing.

Seyi Law said; “I never said ‘vote for Tinubu’. Go and check. I write the things that I know he did in Lagos, and I will put ‘Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is my candidate or is who I am voting for.’ I didn’t tell you to vote for him. And again, Seyi Law did not make the 8.9 million that voted for him. I am just a number among those numbers.

“Yes, do I have influence over some people? Maybe. I used my influence for what I believed in. And I believe that this person [Tinubu] is the person that would take us to that Nigeria that I want us to be.”
