In a series of photos making rounds on social media, the three major presidential candidates has been spotted sleeping during some meetings.

These candidates has since received knocks from Nigerians on social media while their campaign teams have taken time to deny their principals were indeed sleeping in the photos.

Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate has been captured on multiple occasions dozing off during events and meetings.

Peter Obi, in October 2022, was captured allegedly "sleeping" during a courtesy visit to a monarch in Nasarawa state.

The former vice president was seen bowing his head down while his party chieftains were seated next to him with their eyes opened and wide awake.
