Saheed Balogun, a Nigerian actor, faced criticism after he posted a video of a woman selling roasted corn to support Babajide Sanwo Olu, the current governor of Lagos State.

Saheed Balogun, the assistant spokesman for the performing arts division of the APC presidential campaign council, posted a video of a corn vendor supporting Sanwo Olu on social media.

Due to Sanwo Olu’s accomplishments and sterling work in Lagos State, the woman, who only went by the name Alhaji Kudirat Akinoya, implores the Lagosian to vote for his second term.

Saheed Balogun shared the video and wrote:

VOTE Gov Babajide SANWO-OLU for Second Term.

This prompted some online users to criticize Saheed Balogun in the comments section for employing an elderly woman in a support role to promote Sanwo Olu.
