Rotimi Oyekanmi, the media assistant to Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has come under fire from Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw.
Trouble started after the electoral umpire announced the rescheduling of the Governorship and State House of Assembly election.
In response, a Twitter user criticized INEC for delivering updates at strange times and questioned whether the electoral umpire’s administrator tweets from the club.
Kate Henshaw responded to the tweet by saying that only thieves tweet at such strange hours.
Unhappy with the reaction, Rotimi Oyekanmi questioned the actress about her remark, arguing that since she had starred in a movie about the political process, she ought to be aware of how elections are conducted and how violent they can be.
He responded: “One would expect someone like you to be circumspect before making comments on sensitive issues. You featured in a movie on electoral violence. Have you sat down to conduct an election in this country?”
Kate Henshaw fired back with her response: “Just day try respect you because e be like say you are older than I am… Just stop talking gibberish! For how long will you make excuses for incompetence??? You are a beneficiary of the status quo… step aside… circumspect koor, circumventing circumcision.”
