Ahead of the 2023 general elections, some Nigerians have started a social media movement to reject the two leading political parties in the country, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
This is not unconnected to the emergence of octogenarians as PDP and APC presidential candidates – Bola Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar.
Taking to their various social media handles, Nigerians are saying it’s time for the youths, competent, and healthy leaders to emerge in the country.
Tweeting while displaying photographs of both presidential candidates, Charly Boy wrote: “They can be as ATIKU~LATED as they want. But we trust INTEGRITY not words.
“NIGERIANS have been through Enough TRIBULATIONS, no more TINUBU~LATION.
“If any of these two wins, I go just leave una waka go Ghana, go beg dem for citizenship. Buhari will look like a saint.”
On her part, co-convener of BringBackOurGirls, BBOG, advocacy group, Aisha Yesufu, rejected Tinubu and Atiku’s option ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
Yesufu urged Nigerians to vote against them because they are not an option.
She commended Nigerians for their renewed drive to vote against APC and PDP in 2023.
“#TINUTIKU are not my options, and the more mistakes they make, the better for them not to be voted! The one that is an option is the one I will scrutinise the more so he doesn’t drop the ball!
You get it?
“#APCPDP decided to be unfortunate, and Nigerians are taking matters into their hands! I love it!,” She tweeted.
Recently, social media influencer and skit maker, Mr Macaroni asked Nigerians to get their Permanent Voters Card, PVCs, ahead of the 2023 election.
He had tweeted: “Everyday, we find ourselves dealing with one form of insecurity or the other.. Killings, kidnapping and attacks on Nigerians across different parts of the country.
“Our leaders have failed us!! We must be part of the movement to usher in a new dispensation!!! Get Your PVC!!!”
