Veteran Nkem Owoh a.k.a Osuọfia made the headlines after it was reported that he rejected a N10 Million offer to endorse Bola Tinubu, APC Presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 Presidential election.
According to sources, the Veteran Nollywood Actor said N10 Million cannot buy his endorsement as 2023 is critical for the collective good of all citizens and would NEVER be sold.
Sources say Osuofia was offered the usual 5 million Naira for endorsement of the candidate, but he refused. Even when theoffer was doubled on account of his worth, he still refused.
In his words, “Not everybody is amenable to the persuasiveness of money”.
However, when Sahara Reporters reached out to Osofia to confirm the rumours that he turned down the APC offer he said he had no interest in politics. In his words:
“I don’t want to confirm it, I am not interested in politics.”
His response has generated more tweets with the public believing that the veteran indeed rejected the money, but didn’t want to be caught in a cross-fire, hence the ‘sitting on the fence’ response.
