Netizens have dragged Nollywood actress and influencer Eniola Badmus over a statement on Tinubu’s win.
It is no longer news that Eniola Badmus is one of the principal campaign officers of Tinubu/Shettima’s mission towards the 2023 general election.
Eniola Badmus had been at the end of netizens since she openly declared support for the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
A post shared on Snapchat by Eniola Badmus captured the attention of netizens who shared it on Instagram.
Eniola Badmus claimed Tinubu would win the presidential election, and his win should not be judged because he belongs to the ruling party.
The actress also warned netizens from attaching his victory to President Muhammadu Buhari, who, according to her, failed to support his party.
“Let it be known that if Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu wins, this election is not because his party is the ruling party.
“It’s because of the faith Nigerians have in him personally.
“While “Tinubu can boast that he was instrumental to PMB becoming president, PMB cannot say he’s been instrumental in achieving Tinubu’s presidency. No one should later say Tinubu won because his party is in power. His fighting his battles himself.”
Fans react to Eniola Badmus’ statement
Many took to the comment section to bash the actress for campaigning for the All Progressives Congress candidate.
One Mellybzoo wrote, “Which Nigerians have faith in him?”
One user Seunfunmmi wrote, “Is like pe something is wrong with you ma, y’all should fight your battles yourselves,bubu no be Jesus…already lost battle”
One Brownskingurl wrote, “Which mumu faith. Abi you will say your own faith biko .its not my own faith that will make him win”
Fans drag Eniola Badmus for supporting Tinubu
Kemi Filani recalls that in 2022, Eniola Badmus, in the comment section of blogger Tunde Ednut’s Instagram post, declared her support for Tinubu.
Ednut had asked his fans to choose their preferred presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 election.
In response, Eniola Badmus commented, “Tinubu all the way.”
Her statement, however, came with a wave of backlash from Instagram users who hurled allegations at her.

Another user identified as Divine wrote in Pidgin English: “How much did you collect to betray the youth? So all your protest and show at end sars was a scam? How cheap can you be?”
