The announcement of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a supplementary presidential election in areas where the poll was cancelled last Saturday has generated several reactions on the social media.
While some Nigerians slammed and questioned the electoral body for the action, others made jokes and jest of the proposed action.
Here are some reactions:
Biko, you people that are politically savvy, what does INEC means when it says it wants to conduct supplementary presidential elections? ?

If the initial results wouldn’t be affected why go ahead with the wastage of our resources in the guise of conducting supplementary presidential elections

Medicine after death. Even their condolences to victims of election violence were afterthoughts.

They are playing themselves. So they were aware of all this abnormally and still went ahead to declare buhari as the winner. I think @atiku decision to go to court is the reason for this rubbish.
