Nigerians react

Melody Ozigi Peter commented on Facebook:

“Atiku is just speaking in code. He knows it’s the South’s turn. As a rational human being, he wants to give up Peter Obi and now he pleads with Kwankaso to do the same, knowing it’s the South’s turn. Specifically the South East.

“Thank you Atiku for being reasonable for once.”

Chimezie Opara Obi said:

“Datti Ahmed should go to the same BBC Hausa service to refute this rubbish. This is equivalent to putting Obi on his campaign poster in Bauchi.

“Saying that you are in talks with an independent candidate is a subtle way of compromising that person and diluting his reputation in the North. Datti Ahmed should also request an interview to put that Atiku prank in its rightful place… It’s a mischievous campaign strategy.”
