Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has started facing backlashes from Tweeps on Twitter for his public support for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
He received backlashes after posting a picture of himself wearing a white traditional attire, having the president’s face on the cloth.
Under the picture of President Tinubu on the cloth was the bold inscription which read, “Relax, Jagaban will fix Nigeria”.
In his caption, he expressed his undying support for the president, labeling himself an ‘Asiwaju boy’.
The caption read, “ASIWAJU BOY.100%. UNAPOLOGETICALLY. I LOVE TINUBU. I BELIEVE IN HIM. AND I’M PRAYING FOR HIM TO SUCCEED.”

Yul’s post was not well received by his followers and supporters, who tore into him in the comment section.
Some accused him of faking his support for the president for a paycheck while others accused him of being two-sided.
This is not the first time the controversial actor would be vocal about politics or publicly endorse his president.
Just on August 15, 2023, he posted a picture of the president with a lengthy caption, expressing his full support for the leadership.
He said, “As a leader, you will see certain things that your people may never see. You will have access to certain information that your people may never have access to.
“So some of your decisions may not be fully understood by the people, even though they’re in the best interest of the people. know you’re a man of wisdom.
“May God guide you in all the decisions you take for Nigeria. Best Wishes, Mr. President.THE JAGABAN.”
Many people are threatening to unfollow him and boycott his films in the comment section. The actor, however, remains unbothered by all the hate.
