In the current digital advertising marketing campaign in Nigeria, two politicians have used it in all probability essentially the most, the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi. But the truth is that, Peter Obi’s social media presence has overshadowed that of the All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate.
And to buttress that point, a professor of Journalism inside the US, Farooq Kperogi took to his Facebook net web page to react to that impression. He created a nexus between the two prime social media presidential candidates’ presence and opined that Peter Obi has definitely overwhelmed Tinubu in newest cases. Farooq Kperogi said,
“Seriously, what happened to Tinubu’s previously overactive social media battering rams? They used to dominate the Nigerian social media space. But they seem to have disappeared just when Tinubu needs them the most. Has Obi-mania on social media suffocated them to death? Or maybe it’s because they’ve already exhausted their defensive arsenal.”
To be candid, Tinubu’s social media presence has lowered their head more than likely because of they’ve achieved what they want by being the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress. They may proceed their presence eventually when electioneering campaigns began. That is strategic.
However, Peter Obi must endeavor to advise his overwhelming supporters on the social media platforms to proceed to assemble constructions inside the native communities all through the nation. Social media presence doesn’t win elections in Nigeria, it’s the locals with Permanent Voters Card, PVC, that may vote and elect the leaders in Nigeria.
