Is Kenneth Okonkwo Still in the Governorship Race?

It’s no more news that Nigerian actors and other celebrities are going into politics. In the last elections, Julius Agu, Desmond Elliot amongst others ran for political office positions in their respective states.

Kenneth Okonkwo is the latest amongst actors who want to run for elective positions. Kenneth Okonkwo wants to run for the governor of Enugu state under the umbrella of APC (All People’s Congress) or should I say using the broom of APC?

However, there has been talk going on around that the AMAA award winner has been disqualified from running for the elections. This is due to the fact that he couldn’t come up with the 22 million naira fee for the governorship nomination form.

In an interview with Pulse news, the Nollywood actor debunked the rumours.  “My attention has been drawn to a lot of publications about me since the nomination process of our party APC”, he says “I want to state categorically that they are fake news. I have not made any statement or granted any interview, political or otherwise, to anybody since the beginning of the nomination process. At the appropriate time, I will make my position known”.

So is Mr Kenneth Okonkwo still in the race? we’d have to wait for him to come up with that answer.
