The much-discussed 2023 presidential elections are less than four months away, and renowned Nollywood actor Jide Kosoko has spoken out to warn Nigerian youths about the need to quit taking out their frustrations on those who do not share their political views.
In an interview with CHANNELS TV’s “Entertainment News” a few hours ago, Kosoko, who faced backlash for publicly endorsing a presidential candidate from the nation’s southwest a few months ago, lamented the prevalence of online bullying among young people who have different opinions about the candidates running for president and urged them to show tolerance for one another and those in opposing viewpoints.
“If you continue to look at the situation of the country, and how bad governance has affected you, you will continue to misbehave with everybody. For example, some elders have never been in government and they have no business being in government, they are just like you (youths), they just feel that they also have a civic responsibility to elect or vote for people of their choice, people they feel can do it right.

But, who knows who can do it right? It is more or less like gambling. Even for those who have done things in the past, It is not enough to say they will do it right when they get there, what if they have changed from the person they used to be? So everything is in the hand of the Almighty God. You have your choice, I have my choice. Tolerance is important. Stop showing anger because you are hungry,” he said.
