Adebowale Debo Adedayo, fondly called Mr. Macaroni, is a well-known activist and content creator has retracted his endorsement of the Labour Party’s election leaflet that features him.
It could be recalled that Mr. Macaroni expressed his preference for Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi in November 2022 while making it clear that he would not take part in any political campaign.
Howeve, a Twitter user on February 8, 2023, drew the skit maker’s attention to the Obi-Datti campaign flyer with his picture on it.
“Thought @mrmacaronii said he would not be campaigning for any party.” he said.
In response to the tweet, Macaroni expressed his distain for the campaign brochure in a post that was published on his Twitter and claimed that his image was used without his consent.
”I will address this again for clarity’s sake. I am voting for Peter Obi because he’s my preferred choice. It is my civic duty to vote, but I’m not obliged to campaign for him or any other politician. I am not against others who do so, but this was put out without my consent.” he said.
Ayodeji Ibrahim Balogun, better known as Wizkid, a Nigerian musician, also distanced himself from a rumoured Obi concert a few weeks before to this latest event.
