Atiku to supporters: There will be threats and insults, ignore them… speak facts only

Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has called on his supporters to speak facts only, when campaigning for him.

The former vice-president took to Twitter on Sunday morning to say insults, threats and falsehoods will come, but his supporters must show respect, even when they disagree.

“For everyone who supports me, I ask you to conduct yourself respectfully, even with people who do not agree with you,” Atiku said.

“There will be insults, falsehoods, threats and innuendo. Ignore them and stay focused on the task of rebuilding Nigeria.”

Atiku, who has been accused of being corrupt from time to time, asked his supporters to stay focused getting Nigeria to work again.

“Instead of insults, speak with facts. Let us all work together to get Nigeria working again,” Atiku added.

Atiku promises to fight corruption differently, explaining that he intends to fight the menace by preventing it from happening in the first place.
