A group of Nigerian Twitter users on Tuesday took to the social media with a hashtag #TinubuAndKogi50BN. Selected tweets from the hashtag are protesting the interest of the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu in the Kogi State gubernatorial elections.

According to several tweets tweeted on Tuesday via the hashtag, Tinubu’s interest in the Kogi election is the N50 billion bailout fund approved for the state.

It will be recalled that despite efforts by the state Governor, Idris Wada to secure the release of the funds, the funds were still being held by the Federal Government.
