US Election: I’m yet to hear area boys move ballot boxes, says AY comedian


Nigerian comedian, Ayo Makun, popularly called AY has taken a shot at Nigeria over the conduct of the ongoing 2020 presidential election in the United States.

In a statement on his official Twitter handle, AY said he has not gotten a report of disruption of the electoral process by political thugs as is the norm in Nigeria.

The last general elections in Nigeria (2019) was marred by irregularities in multiple states with reports of violence, disruption of the electoral process and most importantly, the stealing of ballot boxes which has become a norm in the country’s electoral scene.

So far, that gives Biden 213 electoral votes and Trump a maximum of 138, because Nebraska splits its electoral votes based on congressional district.
