Presidential Aspirant Okeowo Subomi who in an interview with Laila and Falzthebadguy on his new show “On the Couch” called Nigerians and black people unproductive has now stepped aside after several backlash on social media.
Celebrities and other Nigerians reacted after Subomi said nothing can be produced in Nigeria. Watch the visual below:
Okeowo wrote On Instagram:
Maybe we should see things from another perspective. As much as I and my campaign team have not called any Nigerian unproductive or say that the black man cannot produce anything, myself have only said invariably we should focus on our strength and come together as a people to resolve our needs. If anyone is angered, let them turn the anger into productivity and show us all it can be done. As much as I don’t lay claim to know it all, I will Honorably stand down to allow a more qualified candidate go for the post. I regret any speech that may sound derogatory and want to use this opportunity to wish Nigeria and Nigerians well.
