Former Vice President and the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar, Wednesday, has reacted to the emergence of former Lagos State Governor, Bola Tinubu as the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the next year’s general elections.
Tinubu polled a total votes of 1271 to defeat his rivals like the erstwhile Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi who came second with 316 votes and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, who managed 235 votes to come third.
Reacting, Atiku wrote:
“The APC can gloss over everything, but not its scorecard for the mandate Nigerians gave to the party. The 2023 elections will be a referendum on the failed policies of the administration.”
However, after the declaration of Tinubu as the flag-bearer of the APC in the 2023 general elections, Atiku returned to his Twitter page to congratulate the former Governor of Lagos State.
The PDP presidential candidate said Tinubu’s victory in the primary election confirmed his tenacity.
Atiku tweeted: “Congratulations, @officialABAT, on your emergence as your party’s presidential candidate. It has been a hard-fought contest, but that you prevailed confirms your tenacity.” CONTINUE READING…
