The filmmaker has revealed who he would be voting for in the upcoming Presidential election in February.
Outspoken Nollywood filmmaker, Charles Novia, took to his Twitter to reveal his choice for the Presidential election in February.
The Edo State born movie maker and critique through a series of tweet reveals that he would be voting for President Goodluck Jonathan because of his pacified demeanour among other reasons.
“There are millions of people across the land who will vote to Re-elect GEJ. The opposition seem to have forgotten that. No landslides,” he says on his Twitter account.
“I took my stand a couple of years ago and I still stand by it. No screaming one-sided narratives will change it. I vote based on convictions. He has never advocated for violence. Never. I vote for the pacifist rather than the aggressor. If for the freedom of speech GEJ has allowed, taking in insults quietly when others would have killed to silence such. I have taken that stand. It will not change. Those who will vote, will vote. I vote on the positives GEJ has given to our democracy. Those whose lives have been touched positively by his policies are in the millions as well. They don't need to rant. Every Nigerian should take a stand. That is democracy. You should not be ashamed of your stand nor vote. GMB I really like. Honestly. And GEJ I love. No hate. Let's just vote and await results and live in peace. We are all Nigerians. We love NGR,” the movie director reveals with a series of comments on Twitter.
Charles Novia also commends the President for his speech during his Lagos campaign event. “GEJ gave a great speech today at the Lagos Campaign. I saw a new, energised President. He addressed issues coherently. I am impressed,” the filmmaker says.
