Mr Macaroni alleges threat over choice of presidential candidate

Nigerian comic, Mr Macaroni, reveals the threats he receives for not supporting a certain presidential candidate.

The skit maker took to Twitter to share his encounter with a woman while he was visiting his mum, with his sister and Manager.

The woman asked why he seemed to be “against a particular candidate” and advised him to “watch himself” in what he says came off like a threat.

The thread continues;

And that can only happen when we vote in good leaders. The next thing she said is that I should better watch myself because they know where my people live. I asked if that was a threat and she continued saying all sorts. My sister and manager were with me and I have a video!!

Besides this encounter, Mr. Macaroni confessed to receiving threats from party members and supporters of a certain presidential candidate.

Without saying the name of the presidential candidate, Macaroni goes on to state that he stands for truth, and encouraged Nigerians to be deliberate come 2023 elections.

“To stand a chance for a better Nation come 2023, we must elect the most suitable options to occupy positions of leadership in the country. We must individually analyze these candidates by examining their past records, their current state of mind, their capacity and capability…”

Unfortunately, this is not the first time the comedian will be receiving threats.

Back in March 2022, Twitter user @lawalt2010 wrote that he would kill the comedian for being against the reopening of Lekki toll gate. Although, Lawal later apologised over the threats.
