A Twitter user @itzz_blitz1 shared a video clip of three masquerades showing their support of Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate Peter Obi.
The masquerades were chanting songs in the Igbo dialect as the leader of the group prophesied that the former Anambra state governor will emerge victorious in the coming election.
The representatives of the gods sat on the floor and urged Nigerians to collect the Permanent Voters’ Card (PVC) to vote for the right candidate.
The masquerade said:
“But I am shouting on top of my voice asking that despite all the support, everyone should go, find and collect their PVCs.
“I know you’ll ask if the gods also have their PVCs (referring to itself).”
Masquerade showed off their PVC as they further said:
“Look at me, if I as a god can have my PVC and hold it tightly, tell me why you should not have yours.”
Nigerians who saw the video on social media reacted as Mavis Ikpeme said:
“So the gods will vote too.”
Another twitter user @StillBuggie said: “Hunger don carry so many go that spirit side. Everybody dey feel am now.”
@SammieYong added: “Na when peole bring fowl before dem gods chop, the shege touch dem gods too so dem ghat vote make their ministry dey move.”
