Toyin Abraham has vowed never to go public with political affiliations again as a myriad of criticism on social media is hitting the Nollywood star.


During the 2023 elections, Abraham openly supported Bola Tinubu who ran for president under the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I love Asiwaju and I am speaking for myself. I love him and I will vote for him because of the things he has done for my industry,” she said.

Her choice of candidate, however, led to backlash from some Nigerians on social media. In her defence, the actress said she did not receive “any money” to support Tinubu.


On May 29, 2023, Tinubu was sworn in as the 16th president of Nigeria. Following the president’s inauguration ceremony, Abraham wrote an open letter reaffirming her support for him.

Last week, Seyi, Tinubu’s son, assured Abraham of his loyalty to her just as she is to his dad.

The actress, however, faced fresh criticism on Tuesday after an X user inquired if she would someday share the president’s plans with the public.


“Maybe one day Toyin Abraham will divulge the plans Bola Tinubu shared with her to the public,” the user asked.

“I strongly believe we deserve to hear. Thank u @toyin_abraham1.”

In her response, Abraham said she was “promised good governance and happiness” by the present administration.


“You asked me in a polite way so I will definitely answer you, offcourse I was told n promised good governance n happiness for everyone and wish I believe. If things didn’t go well why do I have to be the one to suffer for it because i remember I voted Jonathan and I was bullied but I didn’t put blame on anyone after everyone choose buhari. So please why would they be cursing n trolling me everytime,” she wrote.

The user then asked: “Thank you for your prompt response. Do you believe he has failed at the moment in governance or not?”

In her reply, Abraham, while dodging the question, said she will never divulge her political affiliation in public again.

“I have faced my life and career cos I am not a politician and I’m not in government, I have learnt my lesson never ever to be open with my choice again,” the actress wrote.

Some users also took to the microblogging platform to hurl abuses at the actress; some of which she responded immediately.
