Nigerians react as Atiku picks Peter Obi as running mate

Peter Obi
There have been mixed reactions on Twitter, with the news that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has picked the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Obi, as his running mate ahead of the 2019 elections.

This was confirmed after both men met at Atiku’s home in Abuja on Friday to hold talks.

Obi arrived at Atiku’s residence in Asokoro neighbourhood around 3pm.

DAILY POST had reported that Atiku was considering at least five names, ahead of the Monday deadline imposed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The former vice-president has now settled for Obi.

Here are some reactions:

@iam_angelraf: My real VIP is a running mate of our next president in 2019. Congratulation Mr “Peter Obi”

@jasonnneji: #2019#, nice move Atiku, Peter Obi will deliver the east for u

@Judeanikx:Today @atiku has shown that he means business in changing lives in Nigeria. “Peter Obi” and Atiku the best tag-team partners we need now. This is the best news I’ve heard since 2015. Nigeria will be great. @APCNigeria you can’t dig crap about “Peter Obi”

@MrAyeDee: No problem, if @atiku likes, he can have Peter Obi as his running, walking or even flying mate. Obiano is SOLIDLY on the ground in Anambra, and all back of the envelope calculations being equal, very strong certainty Anambra shall go with @OfficialAPCNg come 2019.

@PrinceOlanrew12:Picking Peter Obi is an error.

@Iddybrown001: Yes, Peter Obi as Atiku’s running mate is a great deal. But, Atiku’s team needs to do lots of work by making sure the entire Igbo community in Yoruba land are solidly behind Atiku and would cast their vote in favour of PDP. Lots of work to do. Izz not social media som’tin!

@creativerealens: I just wish the presidential race is between Peter Obi and Osibanjo. I don’t like Atiku and Buhari

@Maybeks: The choice of Peter Obi, one of the best Governor of our time as Vice president should tell you something about Atiku…. He’s interested in our ECONOMY!! If I hear pim about that dullard called Buhari again! Nonsense

@NdibeNdibea: So Atiku chose a man that can’t deliver PDP in his ward in the last Anambra state gubernatorial election. Quite laughable.

@MakiSpoke: To be honest, with Atiku and Peter Obi on the same ticket, I’m on their team. I have faith in Peter Obi’s competence.

@Mister_Judah: I don’t like Atiku. I like Peter Obi.

@DoubleEph: Looks like Peter Obi will be the VP. That will be a solid solid solid solid pick. It’s only been 5 days but, so far, Atiku hasn’t put a foot wrong yet
