In a tweet that included photos of Kaduna state Governor Nasir El-Rufai, World Trade Organization DG Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, former Minister of Education Oby Ezekwesili, and Anambra state Governor Charles Soludo, the PDP stated that its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, is dedicated to achieving a united, secure, and economically viable Nigeria.
The Peoples Democratic Party tweeted: “2023, The @OfficialPDPNig presidential candidate @atiku is committed to working assiduously to achieve a united, secure and economically viable Nigerian that will work for all citizens irrespective of their social status, religious, ethnic or political biases.”
The image accompanying the tweet implied that Atiku was instrumental in the recruitment of individuals during former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s administration.
Ezekwesili expressed his displeasure with the tweet, calling it false and extremely misleading.
