Chicken Republic Ad Mocks PDP Spokesman Olisa Metuh, Nigerians React [TWEETS]

The Chicken Republic fast-food brand on Saturday came under the spotlight following the reaction of Nigerians to its advert about Olisa Metuh, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) spokesperson.

The ad which has been interpreted in many ways by readers and observers is believed by some as an attempt to ridicule Metuh and his political party. Divergent opinions however see it as a mark of creativity by Chicken Republic.

Below are some reactions from Nigerians on Twitter:

Mr. Metuh is standing trial after he was arrested by officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission. According to the charges, the PDP spokesman transferred the sum of $1 million through his agent, Nneka Nicole Ararume, to one Sie Iyenome of Capital Field Investment, committing an offense contrary to Section One of the Money Laundering Act.

He is also accused of receiving the sum of 400 million Naira from the office of the former National Security Adviser, Colonel Sambo Dasuki, without a contract contrary to the Money Laundering Act. Mr Metuh, is also accused of converting the said money to funds for political activities of the People’s Democratic Party. He has pleaded not guilty to all the accusations.
