A viral video of young children queueing at a polling unit in the Northern State of Kano has set tongues wagging online.

The spectacle has raised eyebrows among some Nigerians on social media - Some believe it is a tactic usually adopted by the northern states to churn out huge votes in support of their preferred candidate.

Contrary to this opinion shared by some worried Nigerians, others believe that these kids are standing in the queue for their parents.

_@Celeb_Shoemaker: This is Nigeria!!!!!! Omo!!!!!
