Senate President Bukola Saraki’s ‘#GrowNigeria’ movement has suffered a great setback as he didn’t get the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) presidential ticket.
Former vice President Atiku Abubakar polled over 1000 votes, thereby beating other aspirants to clinch the ticket to be the party’s flag bearer in next year’s presidential election.
Saraki, who polled just 317 votes after wide consultations around the states in the country have earned himself some serious backlash.
Nigerians on social media are trolling the Senate President for not winning the primary election after putting in some much efforts.

Saraki locked up the Senate. Travelled across the whole regions
Spent millions of Naira for form, social media influencers and delegates.
Earned 317 votes.
May we not experience such misfortune in our lifetime

Saraki’s loss is a proof that social media won’t win you elections

Saraki won almost all the online polls while Atiku won the main poll.
Lesson: Social media polls, debates and arguments is not enough, voting makes the difference.
