Nigerians have taken to social media to react after Nollywood actress and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) deputy governorship candidate, Funke Akindele bragged that her 20 million social media followers would help her win the governorship election in Lagos state.
Recall that she bragged about her followers in an interview on Channels TV.
According to the mother of two, she has over twenty million followers on social media who would support her party to emerge as the winner.
When reminded of the popular cliche that ‘politics is not on social media’, Funke said she also has a lot of fans at the grassroots.
However, some Nigerians expressed their thought, stating that huge social media followers are not enough to win an election.
