There is no doubt that Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan is probably the only national leader who has supported and contributed to the development of the entertainment industry. GEJ recently pledged $2 billion naira to boost the Nollywood industry, (click here if you missed it), and met with several entertainers over the election campaign period.
Nollywood star actress, Ini Edo, took to Instagram to show her appreciation towards President Jonathan for his support in developing the Nollywood industry and also congratulate Gen. Buhari for his victorious win.
Ini’s message on Instagram to GEJ reads:
“My President. You are indeed a great man. A man of honour, dedication and Integrity. Your kind nature will be missed by all Nigerians. You allowed Peace throughout this elections and made us as a nation understand that there’s no alternative to Peace. You showed interest in an industry no other Nigerian President did. Entertainment! You contributed to giving us a voice. You helped us grow! If only for this reason sir, I remain eternally grateful. Nigerians have spoken and as the great man that you are again you have heard. God bless you Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. May your days be long and may you be granted your hearts desires. #GEJ #Transition #NigeriaDecides”
Ini also shared a message to congratulate Gen. Buhari on his victory, which reads:
“Nigeria has decided. Congratulations Rtd Gen Mohammed Buhari, President elect of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I also congratulate Nigeria on the peace shown throughout this elections. I had supported President Jonathan but Your voices have been heard and your votes counted. Nigeria is about to embark on a new journey and my prayer is for Nigeria to continue to stand as one nation in peace and harmony. God bless the Federal Republic of Nigeria. #truedemocracy #NigeriaDecides”
