“Congratulations Alhaji Atiku Abubakar. You have outspent the rest. You have a new toy. But believe it, it is only a dream.
“You ran away from facing President Buhari in a primary, now you’ll meet him at the presidential elections. Ntor!
“14.8 million people made President Buhari their candidate, 26,584 people made Atiku their candidate.
“Bearing in mind that you can’t go to America to represent us at the United Nations, nor meet with Nigerians in America, our job is made easy.
“Say Baba Buhari. 2019 is settled. God bless Nigeria.”
