Following the criticism that trailed her husband Ned Nwoko over his comment on the presidential candidate of Labour Party, Peter Obi, actress Regina Daniels has remained silent on the matter.
In an interview with the BBC on Tuesday, June 21, Ned Nwoko, a Delta North PDP senatorial candidate said he would prefer to see Mr Obi as minister of economy.
He said, “Peter Obi is a good man and has impressed me. When he came to London he came alone. He’s a capitalist, a big-time player in the business world, and conservative in how he handles things.
“I will like him back in PDP, he will do well as minister of economy, and he will help us turn around Nigeria’s economy.”
Nwoko added that Obi lacks the structure required to win the election.
His statement was met with backlash from supporters of Obi who lashed out at the actress’ husband.
Nwoko, however, took to Instagram on Wednesday, June 22 to say that he was misunderstood.
He said: “Some people are yet to understand the structure of governance. Corruption doesn’t start and end with a president likewise the governance of a country. It involves every segment of the government and the society.”
“A president cannot function effectively without having the support of the National Assembly which means that his/her party must have the majority in the Senate and House of Representatives in order to function effectively.”
While Nwoko cleared the air, his wife Regina has, however, remained silent on the matter, she also ignored trolls who stormed the comment section of her post to attack her over her husband’s statement.
The actress who appears seemingly unbothered about the critiques took to Instagram on the same day to announce her new endorsement deal with a skincare company. She also posted a photo of herself and her son Neji rocking the same outfit from her clothing line.
