Some Nigerians have taken to social media to react to a video released by Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The one-minute clip of his manifesto was posted on his verified Twitter page on Wednesday.
Hello. Welcome on board. -AA pic.twitter.com/OnBit7r5VM

“Hello ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking, welcome on board flight 2023 Atiku/Okowa 2023, I have my co-pilot here with me, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, keeping track of all navigation system, our destination is a ‘United Nigeria’…” the opening message reads.
But the video has generated mixed reactions on Twitter.
“I was ready to sit back, relax and enjoy the flight when the captain said: “My name is Atiku Abubakar …” and jolted me back to reality! Anyway, that is easily remedied. Let @atiku do the narration himself before we start talking about the voice of Jacob and the hand of Esau,” Ayo Obe, an activist, tweeted.

“1st lie detected, no be you do the voice over. You want to use another person’s voice to scam us, so later, you’ll now say you were not the one that made the promise. No way,” Lorry Larry, another user tweeted.

You people have started again. This was how APC promised restructuring in 2015 and they denied thereafter. https://t.co/c9gfq2oYrk

The way your aircraft came in for that landing.
Such a hard landing with even a tail strike.

Education and Security but you delete tweets after Hausas said they won’t vote for you.
If you can’t stand your grounds against mob killings, how do you intend to challenge Boko Haram and Fulani Bandits? How? https://t.co/K2DkOAPZYu

This is pure LAMBA. Deborah was stoned to death, you issued a statement and deleted it few hours later.. then you issued a disclaimer in Hausa… How are you now the advocate of a United Nigeria? Nah! You're the chief ambassador of HYPOCRISY. The aircraft sef no get fuel 🥺🥺🥺
