Popular Nigerian skit maker, Mr. Macaroni, has some words of advice for Nigerians.
The skit maker advised young Nigerians not to engage in tribal wars and let politicians use them as a tool of destruction.
In a video shared on his Instagram page, the comedian urged young people to remain united and not trigger intertribal chaos over politicians “who will always be friends.”
“I know how some people must feel, I know we’re not happy with the way INEC conducted the elections in some certain areas,” he said.
“But the president-elect has been announced and any aggrieved candidate can go to court but don’t let anybody use you. The Nigerian youths must remain as one.
“Do not die for any politician, don’t let any politician use you as a tool, that’s all. They are friends, we know they’re friends. The youth can have their choice but politicians will be politicians.
“Don’t give up and don’t lose hope. Anybody that is telling you as a Yoruba man to attack your Igbo brother or my Igbo brothers are telling you to attack Yorubas somewhere, Hausas or any other tribe, my brother please don’t.
“And while we’re trying to build trust for politicians we must remain united because only then can we say oh na we bring you in you no do well get out. Only when they see that we’re united is when we can make decisions like that.
“Neither me nor my brother Falz have ever claimed leadership. We’re youths like yourself who just want the growth and development of our country Nigeria.”
In November 2022, the comedian endorsed Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), however, declared Bola Tinubu as the president-elect of Nigeria, on Wednesday.
