Former vice-president Atiku Abubakar was yesterday elected as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The Presidential primaries was held on Oct. 6, 2018 in Port Harcourt at the PDP National Convention. Atiku won by a landslide against political heavyweights.
Such as: Bukola Saraki, Aminu Tambuwal, Ibrahim Dankwambo, Ahmed Makarfi, David Mark, amongst others.
We gathered some of the best posts from Twitter.
As with every candidate contesting to be Nigeria’s president, there’d always be those who oppose. Some for personal reasons, others political and then, there are the paid activists.
We gathered the best tweets from them all.
This is the Spokeperson of #GrowNigeria campaign which has now morphed into the #Atikulate Camp.
He knows Atiku is CORRUPT. He knows Atiku LOOTED Nitel into a Carcass BUT today wants you to vote for ATIKU.
Legends of DoubleSpeak. Morally Bankrupt yoots.

People who are following politics in Nigeria, I’m going through LEGAL documents on @atiku vis-a-vis his involvement in criminality, when you read them, I promise except you really hate Nigeria, you’d agree that such a Person does NOT deserve to hold ANY public office anywhere…

If you say Atiku’s multiple local and international verified corruption cases are not issues to talk about concerning his fitness for office, why did you work so hard daily to get Kemi Adeosun out of office for a fake NYSC certificate?
You all are pure water bags of frauds

The ones who are tired of the present regime have also had their say and shown support for Atiku. Even fellow PDP aspirant, Bukola Saraki.

We always knew from Day 1 that only one candidate would emerge. On behalf of all the aspirants, I want to assure Alhaji @Atiku Abubakar that we will work with you to ensure that come 2019, you emerge as Nigeria’s next President. #PDPPresidentialPrimaries

First, I want to congratulate Team @atiku FC for winning the title yesterday
I didn’t support your ticket because I felt there were some “Perception” issues to be cleared
But now that you have emerged, I will appreciate if you clear the air so that Lifeless FC MUST be Relegated

Nuetrals And Those In The Other Camps
Some others are neither here nor there, they just want to enjoy the rumble. Those ones would tackle anybody from the Atiku or Buhari camp tgst crosses them .
On twitter “we want young leaders” yen yen yen. But in real life you still want to vote for Buhari or Atiku. Nigerians lets stop recycling our presidents. Aso rock is not a retirement home.

The most important thing in winning national elections in a country like Nigeria is a structure. To that effect, only Buhari and Atiku in the race. Only PDP & APC can run a competitive national campaign as of now. Let us not deceive ourselves.

Good morning to those of us that know Buhari and Atiku are not the only candidates.
The rest of you can take your good morning from them.

The only thing I’m waiting for RightNow is OBJ’s letter. I don’t care if he writes to APC or PDP or Secondus or Adams or Atiku. I’m aware that in his usual manner, Baba is writing a letter that will change the politics of the day.
