AS the Globacom-sponsored TV drama Series, Professor Johnbull, goes on air this week, viewers will be treated to the battle of wits between two major characters in the sitcom, Yomi Fash-Lanso (Olaniyi) and Ime Bishop (Etuk).
The two characters will deploy all arsenal at their disposal to outdo each other in the contest for the chairmanship of the hospitality board in their locality.
This is the plot woven by the producers of the series this week as attention shifts to the political class in a bid to expose the penchant by politicians to make unrealistic campaign promises.
The episode is entitled Campaign Promises and will be aired on Tuesday, on NTA network, NTA International on DSTV Channel 251 and NTA on StarTimes. The repeat broadcast will also come up on Friday on the same stations.
Lead character, Professor Johnbull (Kanayo O. Kanayo), and other regulars in the series including Caro (Mercy Johnson Okojie) Churchill (Jnr. Pope Odonwodo), Flash (Stephen Odimgbe), Mai Doya (Funky Mallam), Samson (Ogus Baba), Abednego (Martins Nebo), Ufoma (Bimbo Akintola) and Jumoke (Bimbo Kosoko) also featured in the episode. The episode examines issues such as unrealistic campaign promises, relevance of a person’s ethnicity in electoral contests, reasons for political violence, high cost of campaigns, amongst others.
Globacom, in a statement issued in Lagos on Monday, urged viewers to watch Campaign Promises as they are assured a full dose of laughter even as the episode tries “to reawaken the people’s consciousness to the roles they are expected to play before, during and after elections.”
