National Super Alliance (NASA) supporters have angrily reacted to Ahmednasir Abdullahi, popularly known as the "Grand Mullah" over a tweet directed at them.
Abdullahi's tweet sparked reactions after mocking NASA supporters ahead of the repeat presidential election scheduled for October 26th.
In a Twitter post on Saturday, Abdullahi saud that that NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga would only manage 40 percent of votes in the fresh presidential poll if his supporters continue spending only 30 percent of their time campaigning for him.
The lawyer proceeded to tag Suna East MP and Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Director of Elections Junet Mohammed in the tweet.
The Tweet read: “Confident that if Baba's supporters spent just 30% of time wasted on Twitter campaigning for him, Baba will score 40% on 26/10.”
MP Junet Mohammed replied to Abdullahi's post stating that the Jubilee Party would garner 32.5% in the fresh poll if they stopped insulting former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
“Confident also if your clients stop abusing baba they will move to 32.5% ,” the tweet read.
Abdullahi hit back noting that Junet Mohammed was the best ‘attacking midfielder” in NASA adding that the Jubilee Party wanted him on their side in 2022.
"Hon you are the best attacking midfielder NASA has and jubilee team wants to buy you on free transfer for 2022...I have instructions...,".
Mr Abdulahi's tweet was, however, met with fury by Nasa online supporters, with some telling him that had he spent less time on Twitter, Jubilee would have won the presidential petition before the Supreme Court.
The Senior Counsel was part of the legal team that was representing President Uhuru in the petition filed by NASA at the Supreme Court:
