Taking to his verified Twitter account, the PDP presidential candidate wrote, “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. -AA.”
Atiku’s congratulatory message shows a spirit of sportsmanship between the two presidential candidates as Tinubu also hailed the former VP when he emerged as the flagbearer of the PDP last month.
Part of Tinubu’s congratulatory message to Atiku signed by the Director, Media & Communication, Tinubu Campaign Organisation, Bayo Onanuga read, “I welcome the victory of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the just concluded primary.
“I look forward to squaring up with him as a worthy opponent in the coming election. I have known the former Vice President as a formidable politician and a patriot who believes in the unity and progress of our dear country.
“As we move further into the election season, I charge the PDP presidential candidate and all political actors across Party lines that we should make this election season one that is devoid of bitterness, rancour and strife.
“We should make our campaigns peaceful and issue-based. Election season should be a festival of ideas that will uplift our country and improve the living condition of all our people.”
