Some Nigerians on social media are upset with Azadus, comedian Seyilaw, singer 9ice, and other young people who walked to support Bola Tinubu today in Lagos.
The Lagos State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) praised the youth for their massive turnout at a rally in support of the party’s Presidential Candidate, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Kashim Shetima, on Saturday.
The Eko Youth Walk, organised by Bola Tinubu support groups, began from Maryland at 7.00a.m. and saw youths walking through Mobolaji Bank Anthony Way, Joel Ogunaike Str., Oba Akinjobi Str. and terminated at Police College.
The walk was also to throw support for the reelection of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his running mate, Obafemi Hamzat, in the 2023 general elections.
The Lagos State APC Publicity Secretary, Seye Oladejo, in a statement, said the party acknowledged and was motivated by the turnout of the youth to throw support for the APC candidates.
However, reacting to the sight of certain celebrities who partook in the work, some of their fans slammed them on Instagram.
