Popular Nollywood actress Toyin Abraham has said she has decided to conceal her political affiliations private in the future, adding that she has learned her lesson following a social media exchange that occurred on X on Tuesday.
Abraham in different replies shed light on the promises made to her by the camp of President Bola Tinubu during the 2023 general election campaign.

The exchange started when an X user identified as Otunba (@ManLikeIcey), said, “Maybe one day Toyin Abraham will divulge the plans Bola Tinubu shared with her to the public. I strongly believe we deserve to hear. Thank u @toyin_abraham1.”

In response, the famous actress revealed that she had been assured of “good governance and happiness for everyone” by the President’s camp.
She said, “You asked me in a polite way so I will definitely answer you, of course, I was told and promised good governance and happiness for everyone, and wish I believe.”

However, Abraham’s candid was followed by a cautionary note, as she expressed reluctance to bear the brunt of public scrutiny should the promises fail to materialize.

“If things didn’t go well why do I have to be the one to suffer for it because I remember I voted for (ex-president) Jonathan and I was bullied but I didn’t blame anyone after everyone chose (ex-president) Buhari. So please why would they be cursing and trolling me every time,” she implored.

Otunba asked further, asking, “Thank you for your prompt response. Do you believe he has failed at the moment in governance or not?”

“I have faced my life and career cos I am not a politician and I’m not in government, I have learned my lesson never ever to be open with my choice again,” she replied.

In 2023, Toyin posted pictures of meeting the then-presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, former Governor Bola Tinubu alongside the governor of Lagos State, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

Captioning the pictures, Abraham wrote, “For the first time, I met the incoming president of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and he shared some of his ideas visions, and strategies to solve the challenges before us as a nation. Listening to him renewed my hope and reaffirmed why he is my choice.”
