Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) nominee for president, praised his Oyo State supporters on Friday.
On Thursday in Ibadan, several of them sang his name in unison when Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike addressed the audience.
To support Governor Seyi Makinde’s reelection, Wike and the other G5 governors gathered in front of Mapo Hall.

As the Rivers state governor urged the populace to support Makinde and other PDP candidates in the state, Atiku’s supporters yelled “Atiku, Atiku, Atiku.”
The former vice president responded by saying he heard them “loud and clear.”
“I take it warmly as a vote of confidence in me and our great party, @OfficialPDPNig. You proved that my love for the Pace-Setter State over the years is not in vain.
“My promise to you is this: we shall work closely together in the mission to Recover Nigeria”, the politician tweeted.
Governors of Benue, Enugu, Abia, and Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, as well as former governors of Ekiti and Ondo, Ayodele Fayose and Olusegun Mimiko, were also present at the ceremony.
