I’ll be fully involved in 2023 general elections – Mr Macaroni



Debo Adebayo, Mr Macaroni

Mr Macaroni was recently manhandled by the men of the Nigeria Police Force NPF at the second face of #ENDSARS #OCCUPYLEKKITOLLGATE protest at Lekki Toll Gate Lagos.

A Nigerian comedian, Debo Adebayo popularly know as Mr Macaroni, said he will be fully involved in the 2023 Nigeria general election.

The comedian disclosed this while speaking  with TheCable at the private screening of ‘Ponzi’, an upcoming movie, in Lagos.

The comedian and actor stated that he will work with other relevant agencies to make people aware of the need to obtain a permanent voter certificate (PVC).

According to him, Nigerians cannot continue to avoid participating in the election process because they do not trust their votes.

“I am going to be actively involved in 2023 elections ranging from PVC registration to sensitising people because now we need to take things seriously. I know a lot of people will say that our votes don’t count but we have to start taking serious steps,” he said.

However, Mr. Macaroni has been silent on whether he will run for any political office in the next general election.

“Personally, I don’t know if I would contest for any position yet but politics is something that everyone should be actively involved in because that’s where we get to decide who rules us and who does not,” he stated.

Mr Macaroni also disclosed that he has been  receiving several threats over his participation in protest tagged #ENDSARS aimed at ending police brutality in the country.

“Of course, I have been getting threats but l think they’re normal. When people don’t like the way you speak or address certain issues, they will always try to silence you,” he added.

“So, it’s normal, they would continue to do that. But will I keep quiet in the face of oppression? That would mean that I have fallen for everything that I stood up against. What matters to me most is my conscience.”
