Nigerians Attack Deyemi Okanlawon Over Open Letter To LP’s Candidate Who Defeated Banky W

Deyemi Okanlawon, a Nollywood actor, has been assaulted online for writing an open letter questioning the election of the Labour Party’s candidate, Thaddeus Attah, in the Eti-Osa Federal Constituency.

Attah was elected over popular singer Banky W and Babjide, son of Musiliu Obanikoro, a former minister of state for defense.

The stunning setback has remained a topic of conversation online, especially since many celebrities expected Banky to win the election.

Deyemi Okanlawon questioned Thaddeus on his ambitions for Eti-Osa as the Honourable-Elect in a lengthy Instagram post.


According to the actor, he has done extensive research on the LP candidate and has yet to come across anything regarding his profile or manifesto for Eti-Osa.

Deyemi also extended an open invitation to Thaddeus for an Instagram live session to discuss issues and answer questions.

However, many Nigerians criticized him online for the lengthy letter, claiming that the man deserves the post and that Banky W’s loss was due to his party.

When I first saw his bill on my street I knew he was going to win, I asked around about him and reports I got was also encouraging, I have seen his manifesto and he means well, what we need to do is let them know that politics is not as before, you won’t be a mediocre and hide under the party umbrella and think you will last, I wish him all the best as he behaves well. I wish Banky all the best as well.”

This guy on the other hand is well connected to people even down to grass-root, well involved in community service way before this election”

ifbnw wrote: “How many of the APC reps in the past years did you single out for public questioning? This is a poor mix of performativeness, bullying and hypocrisy laced with faux concern for how competent Mr. Thaddeus is. If you really want to get to know him, you’ll send a DM, send an email, arrange to meet him in person, discuss his ideas and plans and then translate that to your online audience or organize events for him to gain more visibility online, if you must. Instead of publicly putting him on the spot to question his competence simply because you don’t know him.”
