In a video shared on his Instagram page, Mr Ibu said he was at the event where Tinubu was endorsed, however, clarified that former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar is his candidate if he decides to run for the presidency in 2023 and not Tinubu.
According to the actor, Atiku has helped him a lot in the past and he had no intention of dumping him for another candidate.
He said, “People approached me of Tinubu’s involvement to contest for president of Nigeria, I’m a completely independent person, anything that has to do with anything publicly you should address me on that. I don’t know why this thing is going round like this.
“I’ve never run sideways, it’s been me and Atiku who has helped me in so many ways and if he is running for president certainly Atiku is my candidate.
“Atiku is like a father to me, been working for him even in his own State, so I wouldn’t abandon him. I’m not trying to pull Tinubu down but he’s not my candidate, Atiku is my candidate.
“Anybody I visited is just simply a visitation. As an actor they wanted me to assist them in one way or the other that does not mean I’ve abandoned my candidate and fathers. Everybody is contesting in 2023 and may God help them.”
