In response to allegations that the APC hired phony clerics to wear religious garb at the announcement of the party’s vice presidential nominee, Nigerians created the #BishopChallenge challenge.
Nigerians were outraged when images of the “clerics” at the APC function were posted online on Wednesday, July 20.
Many claimed that the ruling party disregarded Nigerians by paying actors to dress in religious garb to demonstrate that there are Christians who back the party’s Muslim-Muslim ticket.
Two days later, the conversation has not died down.
Nigerians have now taken to various platforms to mock the “clerics” who were at the unveiling by using items from their homes as costumes to transform themselves into religious clerics
Many Nigerians engaging in the challenge used bedsheets as the Bishop’s robes, bowls and pots as the Bishop’s cap, and mopsticks or brooms as the Bishop’s staff.
