Nigerians have slammed Billionaire, Femi Otedola, for endorsing the All Progressives Congress standard-bearer, Bola Tinubu.
The former chairman of Forte Oil had taken to his social media to share a photo of himself with Tinubu describing him as a great friend after paying a courtesy visit in Paris, France.
In his post, Otedola prayed for the former Lagos State Governor that he achieves his heart’s desire in becoming the President of Nigeria.
He wrote, “I am always excited visiting my Great Friend Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu @officialABAT May God grant him his heart’s desire in becoming the President of this great Nation …F.Ote $”
Reacting to the development, Netizens knocked the philanthropist, alleging that he endorsed the APC presidential candidate.
@Nkemchor_ said, “The elite do not want a working society because they are a direct beneficiary of the rot in the system. More Elites like Femi Otedola will still support Tinubu but then the masses who feel the suffering and the pain are more. This fight for good governance is for our survival.”
@Remmymoses said, “You and your family can afford to live outside this country if things get worse but most Nigerians can’t. But remember the words of Awólọ́wọ̀, ‘the children of the poor u failed to train [educate] will never let your children have peace’. Keep reinforcing failure.”
@mavisikpeme said, “Femi Otedola supporting Tinubu is not supposed to be shocking. Why are you all crying? Brace yourselves for more shocks as the elites unravel their candidates one by one. It’s personal interest over Nigeria.”
