President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on new media, Bashir Ahmad earned himself serious backlash, after an ‘insensitive’ post, he shared on social media.
Bashir had written via twitter while posting a picture of Buhari laughing said, that’s the way to laugh when you know no one else bought your party’s presidential ticket, other than you.
He wrote :
When you know on the final day for the submission, you’re the only aspirant bought and submitted your party’s presidential expression of interest and nomination forms. #SaiBaba
Nigerians weren’t very gentle on him, as they came after him with heavy criticisms.
A lot were of the opinion that Bashir, was rubbing salt on injury, knowing fully well that the exorbitant cost of the All Progressives Congress tickets, hindered others from obtaining the tickets.
Some were also of the opinion that, no giving room for competition gives room for tyranny.

Is that why @APCNigeria pegged the cost of obtaining the nomination form so high so that nobody apart from @MBuhari could afford. And you are even proud to captioned your principal picture with that funny and undemocratic statement.

The same thing that killed GEJ and you guys cannot learn. And you are behaving like GEJ's people allowing pride to soak their head remember you are not the first to be living inside villa. This is absolutely not democracy the same thing you preach against
