Some Nigerians have taken to social media to mock Pastor Tunde Bakare, following his ‘heroic’ return to Lagos after participating in the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential primary.
Bakare who scored zero votes, was welcome by a crowd of supporters in Lagos, as shown in a video posted on social media.
But many commentators found it funny that he has such number of supporters yet got no single vote during the primary held on Tuesday.
Commenting on a thread of the video shared by the Punch, many wondered how he could have supporters and not get votes.
