As the final results of Edo state governorship election held on Saturday, September 19, are being awaited, some Nigerians have taken to their Twitter handles to mock the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former APC national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole and Kano state Governor Abdullahi Ganduje.
From results declared so far by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, from the local governments, incumbent Governor Godwin Obaseki and PDP governorship candidate is winning with wide margin.
He is however, being trailed by the APC candidate, Pastor Ize-Iyamu, who is a major contender in the election that featured 14 governorship candidates.
Read below how some Nigerians are mocking the APC chieftains:
Tinubu and Oshiomhole messed up Pastor’s chances. He would’ve performed better had it been he trusted wholeheartedly in God and distanced himself from those rogues parading themselves as godfathers. This is also an opportunity for Lagosians to take back their State in good fate.
EdoNoBeKano Ganduje needs to use the toilet as we lead by over 80,000 votes..may be Hope has a policeman that will testify to his typed results…#EdoDecides2020
So Apc that didn’t pay salaries for over a year in Edo state is expecting Obaseki to lose? Obaseki paid salaries every month and even promoted local govt workers. He even cleared Oshomhole’s backlog. EPA, we dey your back!! @GovernorObaseki
How can you conduct election during rainy season and expect the man holding an umbrella to lose? Over to you Ondo. It is now left for you to decide if your state treasury will service Bola @Asiwaju’s treasury. Edo has spoken!

APC brought three thieves in Eso
- Mace thief (Omoagege)
- Dollar thief (Ganduje)
- Supreme Court thief (Hope Uzodinma)
PDP brought only one political strategist.
