Nigerians beg fictional superheroes to save their election
Nigeria has held its general election with the collation of the polls underway and according to some Nigerians, they need supernatural assistance over how the election is turning out.
Out of the dire need for the polls to reflect the desire of the masses, some Nigerians on social media are sending messages to Hollywood fictional characters to come to their rescue.
Taking to the DM of the producers behind the fictional superheroes, a social media user wrote "it's now or never, they're rigging the election in our country, Nigeria. Just land anywhere. Just borrow us Black Adam or Aquaman.
Please after the president election, leave Black Adam behind to protect us for Lagos governorship election too. You don't need to reply if you're sending them. You can't say no. It's black history month".
