A popular actress, Foluke Daramola, has said that though the bad shape of the economy is affecting her, she does not regret campaigning for President Bola Tinubu in the run up to the general elections earlier in the year.
In an interview with Saturday Beats, she said, “It is not like if any other person had been there, it would have been better, because the economy was already terrible before Tinubu came to power. Even though it (economy) is affecting my pocket deeply, the truth is that for gold to come out well, it has to be refined in fire.
“We (supporters) have not lost hope in President Bola Tinubu, but we are hoping that things will get better, and I am sure they are working towards it. If the refineries in the country are working, we can be sure that fuel prices will reduce. Change can be excruciatingly painful, but we are hoping for a better tomorrow.”
The actress added that due to the condition of things, there was a limit to the things she could do to celebrate the Yuletide.
Admitting that she is also affected, Daramola said, “It has affected me, because I now have more mouths to feed. There are people I usually send money to, no matter how little, but these days, even the one sent to them is not enough. Christmas is about giving, and being able to support one another and make them feel loved. It has affected me, because I have more responsibilities to fulfill, and also show love to people around me. That has ‘tested’ my pocket.”
The actress added that she would be travelling outside the country to celebrate the Yuletide with her family. That was even as she stated that she intended to celebrate her next birthday with some veteran actors.
