‘Stop The Oppression’ – Mr Macaroni Reacts To Video Of Thugs Attacking Igbos Trying To Get Their PVCs In Lagos
Popular comedian cum activist, Debo Adebayo aka Mr Macaroni has called out thugs trying to deny people from the Southeast access to voter registration in the Ojo local government area of Lagos state.
This comes after a viral video of Igbo traders lamenting bitterly after they were denied registration of the Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) ongoing in the state.
Expressing displeasure over the incident, Mr Macaroni in a series of tweets on Thursday condemned the discrimination against the Igbo people, whilst stating that everyone, regardless of their tribe was going through hardship.
He encouraged tribalism to be disposed of so that everyone could jointly fight the cause of the suffering.
He wrote;“I have seen different videos of Igbo traders being attacked in Lagos while trying to register for their PVC’s!! We can’t be shouting get your PVC and some people are attacking others while they are trying to do it!! It is wrong and Evil!!! These are the issues!!!!
“Nigerians are suffering!! Igbo, Hausa or Yoruba. Christian or Muslim. We are all going through hardship. So why do we keep using tribalism to fight ourselves instead of joining hands together to fight the cause of this suffering and work towards a better society??
“Every Citizen has the right to collect their PVC and the Igbos are not exempted!!! Stop the oppression!!! Do not Disenfranchise the people!!! Let Us Vote!!!!”
