I’m ready to quit acting for politics – Dele Odule reveals reasons for joining PDP

Dele Odule Dele Odule

Veteran Nigerian actor, Dele Odule, has said he might quit his acting career for real-time politics if that is the only way to fight for the right of his people in Oru Ijebu.

Dele Odule in an interview explained why he joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Ogun State.

He claimed his community in Oru, Ijebu North Local Government Area of Ogun is currently being trespassed by the people of another community but no one seemed interested in doing anything.

The thespian explained that the many cries of his people had been falling on deaf ears as those who should wade into the issue between the two communities are paying no attention.

He explained that he joined the PDP when the party’s governorship candidate, Ladi Adebutu assured him that his administration when elected, would wade into the matter to avoid a total breakdown of law and order.

However, Odule said he would quit if his desires are not met by the PDP as promised; saying that an entertainer is not supposed to align with any political group.

He maintained that Adebutu, while in the House of Representatives, sponsored a bill that would have had a positive impact on the nation’s entertainment industry.
