The 2023 Presidential election is regarded by many as the make-or-break point of Nigeria and one of the leading candidates, Peter Obi, recently appeared on an IG Live session with popular comedian AY Makun. Mr Peter Obi during his live conversation with AY Makun made a comment that seems to have struck a chord with many Nigerians on how he has been able to keep up with his extremely busy schedule. The LP candidate noted that he would always make time to talk to the Nigerian people because he was seeking a job from them, which is to be the CEO of the country. Mr Obi further explained that anyone who was seeking a job never gets tired of attending interviews, no matter where it could be taking place.

Meanwhile, Lagosian Magazine recalls reporting that comedian Ayo Makun and singer Paul Okoye recently clashed on social media after the former made an unsatisfactory comment. AY in his post made reference to three major presidential candidates in the upcoming general elections, and Okoye accused the comedian of ‘sitting on the fence’. However, the comment didn’t go down well with AY who made it clear that there are entertainers who have done more work than he (Okoye) ahead of the elections.
