Prior to 2019 general elections, the All Progressives Congress [APC] led federal government have mounted a giant broom in Abuja, the federal capital territory.
The APC broom was erected near the Abuja city gate that bears the words “YOU ARE WELCOME” on it, which also signifies the unity of the Nigerian people.
The gigantic broom has raised a lot of dust as Nigerians took to different social media platforms to share their views on the new development.
One Twitter user identified as Jackson Ude (@jacksonpbn) shared the photo of the giant broom on the social media platform saying;
“N230million giant APC Broom mounted near the Abuja gate ahead of elections. What happens to it after Buhari loses next week?”
Lot of Nigerians were of the view that the broom will get burnt down and had to point out that 230milion for a broom is too much, which can be said to be a form of corruption on its own, seeing that the FG main focus is on the the fight against corruption.
Some felt it was disrespectful to put such near the city gate, which significance is of great value to Nigerians thereby linking it as an abuse of power by the federal government.
Others saw it as a sign of unemployment, corruption etc, while urging the opposition party PDP to also do the same by putting their own party symbol there as well.
