Netizens reacts to Garba's tweet
Moments after his tweet, reactions from netizens hit out at the former presidential aspirants.
“People like you that benefited from the criminality structures that have ruined the destiny of this country wouldn’t see anything wrong in this election. Don’t worry since you’re in Lagos and you didn’t see any violence, may Allah reward you according to your wishes for Nigeria.”
“The way APC conducted election in Lagos is same way they will treat your kids and generations to come. If it was free and fair, your kids will benefit and be successful but if not they will be rejected and you will be alive to see it.”
“If the election in Lagos is peaceful as you claim, may your life be peaceful but if it’s chaotic, your life will be disastrous and barbaric.”
“You are not a righteous Muslim and am not surprised you posted this. You should understand that righteousness is far better than the ministerial appointment that you are jostling for. May God make Nigeria happen to you quickly, speedily and without warnings.”
