The above post has, however, caused a barrage of reactions on the bird app as Nigerians laughed Ize-Iyamu, noting that he ridiculed himself to be dressed like that for political gain.
According to Oghene-Hakuna Matata Gem stone [@echecks] who reacted to the post, former Governor of Akwa Ibom, Godswill Akpabio during his term was also turbaned and yet he lost the election.
“Akpabio was turbaned and yet he lost election in the state he governed for 8 years, they should tell Imam Pastor Andrew Osagie Ize-Iyamu to calm down he won’t be any different,” the social media user noted.
Another netizen identified with the username @AinojeOhio mocked Ize-Iyamu and as well blamed people who have declared their support for his candidacy.

According to @anieowodo, Ize-Iyamu have just rubished his pastoral calling all because of politics game. “Rubbishing his Pastor title/appellation… A con artist will always be a conman!,” the netizen expressed.
