Renowned Nollywood actor, Yul Edochie, has voiced his strong disapproval of Arise TV presenter, Rufai Oseni, for his recent behavior toward guests on the show.

On Monday, Rufai Oseni and Jesutega Onokpasa, a prominent figure within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), engaged in a heated exchange during a live broadcast on the TV station.

Oseni, who was conducting an interview with Onokpasa, expressed a difference of opinion concerning President Bola Tinubu’s decision to remove fuel subsidies and the overall economic state of Nigeria.

The dramatic confrontation between the two individuals triggered reactions from Nigerians, particularly those who support the current administration, with allegations of bias leveled against Oseni.

In response to this incident, Yul Edochie took to his Instagram account to share a video where he called on Oseni to exercise restraint, characterizing him as highly disrespectful.

Edochie also pointed out that Oseni, who was previously caught driving in a BRT lane in Lagos, lacks the moral standing to engage with individuals of integrity.

Edochie remarked, “My friend, be quiet and listen! I’m addressing you! You have no authority, no moral ground to speak where people of integrity are speaking! You’re making baseless statements on national television, and you display a severe lack of respect for this country’s laws. In fact, if someone like you were to become president, you’d wreak havoc on Nigerians. Aren’t you the same person who was caught driving in a BRT lane? You didn’t even apologize until there was video evidence, after which you appeared on national television to express remorse. This is your modus operandi, and we can only imagine other incidents that have not come to light yet. Who taught you journalism? The first lesson should have been to show respect to your guests.

“You are no superior to anyone out there. You are an individual lacking respect and should educate yourself on journalism. You are publicly insulting individuals on national television.

“This is the same Rufai Oseni who denigrates people, behaving as if he’s a god on national TV, making his guests feel uncomfortable. You act as if you own Nigeria, that you are the most concerned citizen, more concerned than all of us. My friend, be silent! You possess no moral authority to address anyone on television in that manner because you are no better than any other Nigerian.”
