Social Media shakes with reactions from Nigerians following PDP’s alliance with Reformed All Progressive Congress (R-APC), Social Democratic Party (SDP) and other parties in Nigeria as they signed Memorandum of understanding on Monday July 9, 2018 in preparation of 2019 Presidential election.
According to reports, the coalition is aimed at defeating President Muhammadu Buhari’s effort to return as the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, come 2019.
Some notable personalities in this gathering includes: Guba Galadima – the National Chairman of the R-APC, the Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Senator Dino Melaye and Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom State among other members of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP.
Below are some tweeted reactions from Nigerians:
@Sumner_Sambo: Glad to see our political parties fusing into alliances or mergers for STRONGER CONTEST BUT if this PDP alliance fails to win 2019 election, it would be interesting to see how many of their leaders will still remain in Nigeria to play OPPOSITION rather than go on SELF-EXILE!
@Johannxs: Obasanjo was in Ogun PDP rally. As a member or supporter, either, his presence is evidence of his desperation and sleepless nights to unseat the APC. He’s back with his vomit.
@kaspervic: If this coalition finally presents someone not in the npdp,Pdp or rapc as it’s candidate, can we say the third force
@AHayatu: A fresh PDP Northern President means another 8 years for the “North”. Win-Win.
@ericmore: Replying to @OfficialPDPNig @MBuhari and 14 others
My vote is for anyone PDP put forward as it’s candidate. Buhari must go back to Daura to take care of his cows next year.
@femimclover: A very big congratulations to all Nigerians. PDP and 38 other political parties including RAPC signed Memorandum Of Understanding this day to defeat Buhari and APC in 2019 presidential election. Now you can see that Obasanjo is on point.
@Mo_Atiku: I underrated PDP….especially their ability to strategize. Not bad so far.
