Rahama Sadau rejects inclusion in Tinubu’s campaign team

Kannywood actress Rahama Sadau has distanced herself from the All Progressive Congress (APC) women presidential campaign council for Bola Tinubu.

A spokesperson for the campaign Rinsola Abiola, who is also the daughter of late Moshood Abiola, released the list on Independence Day.

The campaign list contains names of 944 high-profile women and wives of prominent APC politicians.

In the 70-page campaign document, no fewer than 33 Nollywood and Kannywood actors were enlisted for entertainment.

They included veteran thespians such as Joke Silva who chairs the category, Fausat Balogun, Remi Oshodi, Mercy Johnson, Rose Odika, Sola Kosoko, Lanre Hassan (Iya Awero) Hajiya Nas, Lizzy Jay (Omo Ibadan), Princess Kalihat Bello among others.

However, some media reports claimed Rahama was among the actresses who joined the campaign team.

Debunking the report in a Twitter post on Saturday, an angry Rahama described it as a “big fat lie”.

She wrote: “THIS IS A BIG FAT LIEEEEE…. I AM NOT AWARE OF THIS … I DON’T KNOW HOW MY NAME MADE IT TO THIS LIST, NOT IN ANY WAY ASSOCIATED WITH THIS.”
