A Nigerian celebrity named Mr Jollof contested during the election as a Delta House of Representatives candidate under the platform of Africa Action Congress (AAC). From obvious indications, he, however, lost by a clear margin in the polls which was held on February 23, 2019.
As a reaction to his defeat, the man who is a media entrepreneur took to blaming his party AAC for his defeat. But that is not all. He even went ahead to lambaste Sowore, the presidential candidate of the platform on which he contested.
According to the man whose real name is Freedom Atsepoyi said the political party in question did not hire any party agent to represent candidates at polling units despite the fact that money had been provided to do just that.
Mr Jollof laid emphasis on the fact that Sowore and his men had allegedly collected money which they did not account for. He particularly used a saying to explain his point: "Beans never enter fire, moin moin don dey smell."
Even more, the celebrity said he had particularly paid a person to do the job for him. But this person ran away with his money after not delivering.
Due to the alleged irregularities, Mr Jollof reached the conclusion that there were fraudulent activities within his chosen party. This caused him to take to his Instagram page to call out his chosen party and Sowore himself.

In a later post, the Nigerian man took to thanking those who came out to vote for him. He also addressed his supposed betrayers. After this experience, it would seem he has decided not to get involved in politics again.
