Georgina Onuoha has criticised her colleague, Chioma Akpotha, for crying out over the mishaps done in her polling unit on Saturday, February 25th.
Akpotha went on Instagram live to cry out over the violence in her polling unit, after thugs disrupted the election process taking place there.
She made a live recording of what happened and how she was manhandled at the polling unit.
Reacting to her video, Onuoha recounted how during the 2019 general elections, Akpotha slid into her DM and asked her to stop sharing posts decrying the rigging and violence experienced in some parts of the country.
Onuoha said that Akpotha told her to think of her brand, as such posts could be harmful to her status. In response, the actress blasted Akpotha and the latter unfollowed her.
Onuoha pointed out how her colleague was screaming out of her lungs like a cow because the election violence affected her directly.
She slammed her for only showing bravery, compassion and empathy because it affects her directly.
“I know many may wonder why I am posting this now or speaking about it now after four years. Well, today’s situation was a reminder of how she mocked others privately and minimised their suffering. But she felt the need to scream today because she was directly affected. You do not only show bravery or compassion or empathy only when it affects you directly.
“So this is Chioma screaming at the top of her lungs. I hope she is safe. I wish her well and I pray her vote counts. That being said, this same person, Chioma, had the temerity 4 years ago to tell me that my post will create riots and that the election was safe and free.
“Meanwhile, Monalisa posted videos of people being killed in her hometown in Rivers State and was calling on security agents to intervene.
“There were various videos of thugs attacking people and carting away ballot boxes. If you all remember vividly, one thug in Okoya was almost killed by voters in Lagos when he tried snatching ballots.
“While I was posting those updates, Chioma Akpotha felt the need to tell me to stop. That I have a brand to protect and that I should say the election was peaceful.
“She will never forget my responses to her and she unfollowed me and I blocked her as well. It is incumbent to end friendships with people who lack or sell their integrity and dignity for a few personal gains, I cut you off.
“Many of our celebrities are compromised. They are all about their brands and stomach infrastructure.
“Fast forward to today, and here she is shouting like a cow for safety.
“And I bet the last four years have not favoured her hence the change of heart. I am glad she had this experience today but came out safe. I wish her well and I hope she learns from this experience that you cannot be in bed with the devil and have the moral authority to call it out.
“When you see injustice in society. Call out. Don’t sugar-coat it. Don’t only scream when it affects you directly. Scream when it affects others as well. So Chioma I forgive your ineptitude of 4 years ago”.
