“Big bro Please can you assist me with 1k it would bring me joy things are very hard for me,” he wrote.

In reaction, Ocular priest said he discovered that the man is a supporter of Bola Tinubu, the APC candidate in the just concluded presidential polls.

He shared a snapshot of the Robinson’s page where he liked a campaign post for Tinubu and said he cannot assist someone like that.

He wrote; “Hell No, I can’t assist someone that admires a character like Tinubu. I’m not your bro, we don’t share anything in common.”

A local source said: “Mathew didn’t do much campaign, he has few posters, he was once a councilor during Makarfi era, but later things went bad for him. He picked up Okada business, today he’s going to the Federal House of Reps. This is what Labour Party represents. It’s party for all, no preferential treatment.”
