A Nigerian lady allegedly got assaulted because she jokingly declared that a particular presidential candidate will win the Feb 25, 2023 elections.
It was gathered that she was in a bus when she said that the All Progressives Congress candidate, Bola Tinubu will become president.
The bus conductor and some passengers outraged by her comment were said to have descended on her physically and she broke down in tears.
The young lady then informed them amid tears that she was just joking, but they told her that tensions and emotions are high in the country and certain political comments could trigger aggression.
Watch the video below:
Meanwhile, Grand Patron of the All Progressives Congress (North-Central), Hajiya Mariam Salihu, has said the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is running for presidency to make Nigeria better.
She made the comment during an empowerment forum organised by a support group, National Agenda for Greater Asiwaju.
Salihu said the former governor of Lagos state does not want to be the president of Nigeria to enrich himself because is a selfless person who has empowered numerous people.
The APC chieftain also said that Nigeria under the administration of Tinubu will be peaceful.
She said; “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a strategist, he’s selfless. He’s in the presidency to reposition Nigeria as a better country for all and the future.
Nigeria will be peaceful under Asiwaju; he has the money, and influence. Hes not contesting the presidency for himself but for all. If you look at everybody around him, he did not only empower only those around him, his empowerment cut across the country. That is the kind of leader we want.
Asiwaju is somebody that is proactive, he is somebody that is selfless, he is somebody that is not after himself. If Asiwaju is someone who is after himself, I don’t think he would want to be the president of this country.”
