Nollywood actress and singer, Cossy Ojiakor have never shown her political identity and in fact, many would not have thought the busty entertainer has any political blood flowing in her veins. All thanks to the Obedient movement championed by Peter Obi of the Labour Party as the diva has discovered another side of her personality.
Interestingly, she was a Labour Party agent in the just concluded presidential elections and she said she discharged her duty to the best of her abilities, voluntarily without any monetary inducement. Like many who supported Peter Obi, she was disappointed they lost but says she has a piece of advice for the President-elect.
“I supported Peter Obi to usher in the much-needed change in Nigeria. My biggest hope was hinged on Peter Obi establishing a seaport and an airport in Southeast. The only problem of Igbo is the seaport and airport. That was the hope we had with Obi. If Tinubu can create a seaport in Asaba or Anambra, he will be worshipped,” she told Potpourri in a chat.
