Comedian AY Makun has fired at a member of the All Progressives Congress presidential campaign committee, Femi Fani-Kayode, for promoting bitterness towards Igbo residents of Lagos.
The comedian’s anger was borne out of the Lagos gubernatorial elections that took place on March 18.
Recall that Ndi Igbos were assaulted and barred from voting in most Lagos neighbourhoods because they backed the Labour Party's Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
Political thugs were seen at several locations advising Igbos not to cast ballots. As a result, many supporters of the Labour Party were disenfranchised.

On social media, people like Femi Fani-Kayode promoted ethnic prejudice and incitement against Igbos.
AY composed a lengthy tweet specifically in reaction to the discrimination witnessed during the elections. He said:
"Now that d elections are officially ‘over’ in Lagos State, I am sure all these talks about BIGOTS & MAGGOTS will end on d lips of some coconut heads like d FOOLISH FEDERAL KOLA-NUT (FFK) seekers, Una, for tell us wetin una want we Yoruba boys to do with our Igbo wives & children."

Nigerians react to AY’s remark
"Let’s no igbos rain abuses in Yoruba in general, that won’t be acceptable. I’m a Yoruba man and I voted for Obi. Be selective of the words you use or phrase, it normal.. Learn from AY.. Yoruba isn’t the problem. Blame APC and their gullible desperate followers. Thank you."
"I pity Igbos instead of them to stick and develop one of their State.... They travelled all in the name of business journeying without returning.... My brother Nigeria is not one, the earlier you know the better for you."
"My Yoruba brothers no go leave una Igbo women alone, Igbo men no go leave Yoruba women alone, how we won do am like this. We are ONE."
"I can’t even imagine the damage. Openly telling a child he is an illegitimate child or can’t rule simply cos his mom is from another tribe but his father who is a core descendants of his ancestors is from same land.. "
Peter Obi tells AY Makun why he is always on the move
Meanwhile, Legit.ng recalls reporting that the 2023 presidential election is regarded by many as the make-or-break point of Nigeria. One of the leading candidates, Peter Obi, recently appeared on an IG Live session with famous comedian AY Makun.
During his live conversation with AY Makun, Peter Obi made a comment that seems to have struck a chord with many Nigerians about how he has been able to keep up with his hectic schedule.
The LP candidate noted that he would always make time to talk to the Nigerian people because he is seeking a job from them, which is to be the CEO of the country.
