Nigerians are not finding it funny, the fact that a Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential aspirant, Pius ANyim, was seen in a photo eating and dining with disabled people in Abuja.
Anyim was seen in photos identifying and familiarising with the disabled persons, but this has attracted some angry comments from Nigerians.
It is the same pattern
One comment seen under the photo insinuates that Anyim's friendliness with disabled persons signifies a known pattern of behaviour among Nigerian politicians close to elections.
