One of Nigeria’s talented actresses Rachael Oniga has said she will resume acting when the political campaigns and general elections are over.
According to reports, the popular Nollywood actress, who is currently the face of Jimi Agbaje’s campaign, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate said, though she is not running for any elective office, she would not reject a political appointment or offers.
She said: It isn’t new, I’ve been into politics for some time now. For now, it’s politics. After that, I’ll go back to my job full time. That is not to say I haven’t been working. I’ve been going in and out of locations too.
“If a political appointment comes, fine. But that’s not the reason why I’m into it. I have my name to protect and I feel that this is the time for me to come out and do something. I do a lot on set and if I can come out and do the real thing, there’s nothing wrong with that.”
The Delta state-born actress began her acting career in 1993. Over the years, she has featured in notable Nigerian films such as Sango, Onome and a host of others.
