#TheCandidate: What #PMBPYO Couldn't Answer In 3hrs, #ATKOBI Answered In 1hr - Nigerians React On Twitter

Nigerians have taken to Twitter to compare former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s performance during Wednesday’s interview on NTA with that of President Muhammadu Buhari when he appeared on the station some weeks back on The Candidate show.

Atiku, who is the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), alongside his vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi, had appeared on the programme titled ‘The Candidates’ to tell Nigerians how they intend to govern the country if eventually they get voted into office in the February 16 presidential election.

President Buhari, alongside his Vice, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, had similarly appeared on the programme to tell the citizens what they’ve achieved in their almost four years in office and what they intend to do if reelected in the coming election.

Nigerians have however taken to Twitter to air their opinions on the performances of the PDP and the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidates. Below are some of the reactions:

@isaacdetails: “I don’t understand what Alhaji Atiku meant with the point that he represents the link between present and coming generations, maybe in actual sense,he meant past and present. Me I just want to waste my PVC on candidate that represents my generation shall”

@Moana0635: “Did Atiku really just say that he’ll encourage looters to bring their money to Nigeria? First he said he’ll enrich his friends and now this? He is just passing subliminal messages to the people he wants to sell off our assets to.”

@AgayaHenry: “Atiku Abubakar is way more enlightened than Buhari. To even think they are off the same peer group is really frightening. Nigerians we need to get Nigeria working again.”

@StainlessChi: “Ms Kadaria has shown so much ignorance in private sector driven economy, taxation and models of state growth.”

@AnnieBietAntia12: “Peter Obi isn’t answering questions for Atiku, he’s adding his contributions. Atiku isn’t busy saying he doesn’t undstand the questions, he’s answering accordingly. Obi isn’t interpreting questions to Atiku. People are clapping, not embarrassed like Amaechi.”

@AdesugbaDipo:” Atiku: I lifted 45,000 people out of poverty in Adamawa State.

“Narrator: Yet, Adamawa remains one of the poorest states in the country. If your home-state hasn’t seen a change with you being a VP in 8 years, why should they believe it can be different now?”

@iam_johncfc: “What Atiku and Peter Obi have said in 1hr is more than what Buhari and Osinbajo has done in 3 years. Fact!”

@Legacy12j: “Importantly, importantly, kadaria has always asked the candidates if they’d accept the results of the election per adventure they lost; Only Atiku & Obi has categorically answered that question head on.”

@babaidris090: “After watching #NgTheCandidates tonight , my lost hope in reviving this country was revived through their Analysis. Now i know what @atiku and @PeterObi intend to achieve in the interest of Nigerians. This is not abt personal interest , this is abt the future of the country”

Below are some of the questions to Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar and their respective responses.

1. Kadaria to Peter Obi:

You have been accused of abandoning APGA for PDP to chase your political ambition.

Peter Obi (replied): If I have a car that I can’t drive from Onitsha to Lagos, what is bad in abandoning it to board an Airplane that can take me to my destination?

2. Kadaria to Peter Obi:

"Atiku is the second highest employer of labour in Adamawa, What impact he has made?

Peter Obi (replied): In Adamawa state, there are two major employers of labour and they are the State government and Atiku. What that means is that, as a single individual, he has made a success of his life"

3. Peter Obi When Asked About Those Who Left PDP:

"Those who are in the PDP today are cleaner because they are not running from prosecution, those who have a bad record have moved on to the APC"

4. Kadaria to Atiku Abubakar:

How do you intend to solve the herdsmen crises (paraphrased)

Atiku Abubakar (replied): The best solution to farmers/herdsmen clashes is to provide feeding lots system all over the country. Both the farmers and the herders needs to be enlightened on this.

5. Kadaria to Peter Obi:

Peter Obi, you deported beggars to Akwa Ibom?

Peter Obi (replied): I never deported beggars, my wife is from Akwa Ibom, how can I deport beggars to her state?

Atiku left public University in rot, and built one of the best University just for personal interest?

Peter Obi(replied): can I answer that?

Kadaria(responded): Yes

Peter Obi(replied) : Atiku built University? Yes, Tell me one of his mate that built same?

"When you reduce Coporate tax, it creates incentives to investors that then employ more people, the people that are employed get taxed"

"The referee (Obasanjo) having consulted the VAR system has reviewed his earlier decision and has now decided that the player (Atiku) did not commit a foul"

"Referees also make mistakes in their decision but they can go back and check the VAR to make correction in situations where they make mistake...."

9. Peter Obi replying to a question:

I left office leaving Anambra State with 75 billion naira in investment and cash. Show me in the history of this country where anybody has left 10% of that.

10. Atiku Abubakar replying to a question:

"If I am the most investigated public officer or politician and still not found wanting, then all the allegations are not true"
