In the just concluded All Progressives Congress primaries held at the Eagles Square in Abuja, delegates were asked to raise their hands if they loved President Muhammadu Buhari, but they refused.

The video which has since been making rounds, showed a presidential aspirant, Ikeobasi Mokelu, asking delegates to raise their hands if they love President Buhari.

Unfortunately, all the delegates were captured sitting quietly as they refused to raise their hands. President Buhari who was seated at the VIP section of the Square looked on.

The disappointing incident took place on June 8, during the selection of the party's flagbearer ahead of the 2023 general election.

At the end of the primaries, Bola Tinubu emerged winner, polling 1,271 votes. He beat Transportation Minister, Rotimi Amaechi and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo among others.

Tinubu will contest the election with Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of Labour Party, Senator Kwankwaso of NNPP among others.
