Debo Adedayo, also known as Mr. Macaroni, is a well-known comedian and skit creator. He claims that supporters of a particular presidential candidate have threatened him and members of his family because they feel he is opposed to their choice.
On Sunday, August 14, 2022, the activist announced this on his official Twitter account, but he withheld the name of the president-elect.
Although Mr. Macaroni acknowledged that he has experienced cyberbullying in the past, he urged Nigerians to choose the best candidates for a range of leadership roles in the next general elections.
In his words; “I went to visit my mother 2 weeks ago. I was giving out money to some people in the neighborhood as I always do anytime I go home. A woman walked up to me and asked why I am against a particular candidate.. I said I am not against anyone. All I want is for a better country.
“And that can only happen when we vote in good leaders. The next thing she said is that I should better watch myself because they know where my people live. I asked if that was a threat and she continued saying all sorts. My sister and manager were with me and I have a video!
“I can go on and on about different threats that I have received from some party members or supporters of a presidential candidate because they somehow believe that I am against their choice. Cyber bullying via different online attacks and tribal propaganda.
“There is so much dishonesty going on and it gets worse by the day. But my messaging will never change! Nigerians have suffered enough!!! Look around you and look at the serious challenges we are facing as a people.
There’s no Messiah anywhere! However, to stand a chance for a better Nation come 2023, we must elect the most suitable options to occupy positions of leadership in the country. We must individually analyze these candidates by examining their past records, their current state of mind, their capacity and capability; Vis-à-vis the respective positions they wish to occupy.
“Do your research and vote for the right candidates. I rest my case. For now!
