Nigerian comedian Seyi Law has penned down an apology to those offended by his support for All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Tinubu who was announced as winner of the 2023 presidential election today, March 1.
The comedian who stated that bitterness and hatred towards one another shouldn’t have a place between Nigerians, added that he has mixed feelings not for Tinubu’s win, but for genuine angers expressed by supporters of other political candidates.
Seyi Law wrote;
My fellow Nigerians, I am happy you’re as passionate as you are about your preferred candidates. That is the way politics should be. However, bitterness and hatred towards one another shouldn’t have a place between us.

You might not see things the way I see it. That doesn’t mean you are wrong, and I am right. It just means that we are different. If your candidates have won, I would have prayed and worked for his success and mine.
I apologise to those offended by my support, and I seriously condemn all the violence across the country. I have mixed feelings not for my candidate’s winning, but your genuine angers. However, I pray Nigeria and Nigerians’ lives get better.
From the bottom of my heart, I say THANK YOU.
