2019 presidency: Nigerians lament as 10,000 prostitutes endorse Atiku Abubakar

Nigerians on social media have reacted to the viral report that claims that 10,000 prostitutes have endorsed the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar ahead of the upcoming presidential election slated for next week.

The viral report claims that no fewer than 10,000 members of the National Association of Nigerian Prostitutes, NANP, stormed Abuja, yesterday and vowed to mobilize its members across the country for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The Secretary General of the group, Sandra Efosa, said they settled for Atiku after studying his policy documents carefully for several weeks.

Efosa said under the current government, their ”bed-to-wealth” has suffered low patronage due to harsh economy.

“We shall be mobilizing our members across the country to work for the election of the PDP candidate. I shall let you know of our next step,” Efosa said in a message sent to our reporter on Whatsapp.

When prodded further if the association would be declaring ”free sex” like they did in 2015, Efosa said, “of course, that is our tradition but I will issue a comprehensive statement on why we settled for Atiku having endorsed Bukola Saraki earlier,” she added.

Reacting to the development on Twitter, some Nigerians believed that the prostitutes were acting within their constitutional rights to support and mobilise for a candidate of their choice.

Here are some of their reactions:

@Jerryfrankson, “They did it for Buhari back then and he won. They’re doing it for Atiku this time.”
