The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the announcement of Bola Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Tinubu is "desperate for the keys to Nigeria's coffers," according to the PDP, but its presidential nominee, Atiku Abubakar, will defeat him in 2023.
The opposition party reiterated in a series of tweets that Tinubu was no match for Atiku.
"@OfficialPDPNig mocks @officialABAT for clinching at a very high price the Presidential ticket of the moribund, decrepit, and crippled @OfficialAPCNg, which has now served its purpose as a fraudulent contraption that brought in President @MBuhari's inept, corrupt, and rudderless administration."
"Our Party also sympathizes with Asiwaju for embarking on a road to nowhere, as he is no match for @OfficialPDPNig's more popular, competent, and prepared Presidential Candidate, His Excellency, @Atiku, the unifier and the people's choice, who defeated President @MBuhari fair and square in the 2019 Presidential election." @officialABAT will quickly discover that Nigeria is not one of his owned properties or fiefdoms, and that Nigerians are not his political stooges and entourage of lackeys from whom he purchased the @OfficialAPCNg Presidential ticket. @officialABAT will soon realize that Nigerians hold him responsible for installing the failed @MBuhari-led administration, which has subjugated the people, brought excruciating economic hardship, acute poverty, bloodletting, terrorism, mass killings, promoted disunity, tribalism, and promoted disunity, tribalism, and promoted disunity, tribalism, and promoted disunity.
