A former Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari, Bashir Ahmad, has been under heavy criticism on social media for saying that more than 97% of All Progressive Congress (APC) voters were offline.
The Nigerian writer and journalist likely directed the tweet at the online supporters of Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi who have adorned the social media space with their candidate’s praise.
Recall that the Kano-born indigene had earlier lost the House of Representatives primary election for Gaya/Ajingi/Albasu Federal Constituency to the incumbent member, Abdullahi Gaya, with 109 to 16 votes.
The bragging tweet however did not go well with the supporters.
See how Nigerians are reacting:
