A Twitter user has expressed displeasure after a female candidate, Sen. Aishatu Binani emerged winner of the APC gubernatorial primary election held in Adamawa state.
Sen. Binani defeated 5 male candidates, including Nuhu Rihabu and the immediate past governor of the State, Jibrilla Bindow, in the just concluded election to clinch the party’s governorship ticket.
This is an historic win because she’s the first woman to ever secure the governorship ticket of a major political party in the state.
Following news of her win, a Twitter user identified as Waspapping, took to the platform to criticize those who ‘allowed’ Binani win the election, considering the fact that Adamawa is an Islamic state and women are not allowed to rule in Islam.
“How can you allow a woman to win election? Worrying times for the people of Adamawa”, he tweeted.
Netizens didn’t react kindly to his statement and they dragged him to filth for undermining women and bringing religion into a political issue.
Despite the criticisms, Waspapping maintained his stance and said he would continue telling the truth, regardless of how people received it.
“I’ll tell you the truth no matter how hard or bitter it’s to hear,” he wrote in a subsequent tweet.
