The tweet of an Abuja-based lady simply identified as Josephine who ditched her lover for his refusal to support her preferred presidential candidate ahead of the 2023 general elections has sparked reactions on social media.
Josephine, a staunch supporter of the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi had come on the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to announce her break up, referring to her lover as a “dummy”.

While some Nigerians applauded her, others condemned the action.
