This is coming after APC recorded a huge defeat at the 2020 Edo gubernatorial poll after Godwin Obaseki of Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) was declared Winner by Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)

Obaseki defeated Osagie Ize-Iyamu of All Progressives Congress (APC) with 307,857 votes against his opponent who polled 223,622.

Nigerians expressed shock that Ize-Iyamu who had the backing of  Adams Oshiomhole, Ti nubu and other APC stalwarts could be defeated by a wide margin.

Hence, the party’s loss stirred a huge controversy on Nigerian Twitter as some citizens claimed Ti nubu’s political relevance does not extend beyond the walls of Lagos state.

They said Tinubu’s viral video urging the Edo electorate not to vote for Obaseki worked against Ize-Iyamu.

A popular influential, Oluyemi Fasipe wrote, “To say that Tinubu had to relocate to Edo for the election and they still lost speaks volume on the political relevance of Tinubu, and what to expect in 2023 if he contests. Let me off my mic now.”

Another user, @MrOdanz wrote, “My dear Lagosians, it is very possible for you to break the chains of your slavery and be free from Tinubu. How long will you continue being in shackles? Your city is deteriorating, illiterates, thugs and hoodlums rule over your city. Be like Edo people and get rid of your demigod.”
