Veteran Nigerian actor, Olaiya Igwe, has tendered a public apology for campaigning for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the run-up to the 2023 elections.
Recall that a video went viral on social media last year, showing the actor at a beach as he went unclad to declare that Tinubu will be president of Nigeria.
Speaking on the reason for his action, Olaiya explained that it was because Tinubu was there for him when he was ill.
The Nollywood veteran also said that God instructed him to go unclad and pray at the beach for Tinubu to emerge victorius at the polls.
In a trending video, the apologetic thespian said his actions elicited curses from Nigerians and he was indeed sorry for what he did.

A Michigan woman made headlines due to her act of honesty which ensured that a newlywed couple were able to recover their lost cash.
Diane Gordon who walks almost three miles to work every day for the past year found a plastic bag containing $15,0000 when she was on her way to work.
She returned the bag of money said to be the couple’s wedding cash which just laid on the floor outside a gas station.
Gordon said she had been walking 2.7 miles to work at VC Fresh Marketplace daily after her car broke down in February, 2022.
According to the honest woman, when she was walking back home after a shift on January 21, she stopped by a gas station when she noticed a plastic bag with a large amount of cash in it.
“I looked down on the ground and found a plastic bag with a large sum of money in it. When you turned it over there was even more money.”
She reported her findings to the police, saying “This doesn’t belong to me.” Lt. Matthew Ivory of the White Lake Police Department said an investigation was launched into where the money came from shortly after, and discovered it belonged to newlyweds.
He added; “It never really crossed her mind to do anything other than turn it over. Inside the bag was also wedding cards, these were gifts from a wedding that occurred that day. I think it was $14,780 worth of cash”.
