“Considering that nobody felt it was appropriate to vote for me, I am having conflicted feelings about this invitation,” the respondent said.The politician questioned why no one felt it necessary to elect him despite there being 500 registered voters in the region.

Nonetheless, his followers advised him to attend anyway, as a way to demonstrate leadership. Many opined that the invitation was an indication of locals reaching out to him because the incumbent is not delivering.As such, he was advised to use the opportunity to campaign for the 2027 general election.
