Former music executive Ubi Franklin, has pleaded with fans after he was dragged following the announcement of his decampment to the Buhari led APC.
Ubi had taken to Instagram to share a video of himself heartily chanting APC to teeming crowd of supporters.
He had attempted to explain that he’d joined for benevolent reasons and was only trying to help his people but fans kept on the barrage.
Ubi had written:
What is the goal of Politics? It is about attracting development to your area.
A political party is literally a vehicle to achieve your political goals.
Pls don’t get it twisted, we are working in the best interest of our people first and foremost.
I have done what anyone out there should do, join any political party of your choice or that stands strong in your local area.
I have joined to Negotiate for my own people of Ekori.
My Governor @sirbenayade moved last week to The APC, in 2019 my Governor gave me and thousands of young people first shot in Government, I decided to follow him and negotiate what’s best for my village, let everyone negotiate their village.
The ban placed on twitter in Nigeria is distasteful, I don not support it and will never support what’s wrong for our country and it’s people.
Join politics and be part of the move to change our country.
I promise you, soon you’ll understand, bookmark this statement.
I know it has been a difficult last 24hours for our country.
If we all get involved, we will have a country that we all desire.
