Atiku Abubakar Support’s Arsenal
Premier League is a very popular sport in Nigeria now. Every weekend both young and even old including male and female are busy glued to their super sport or other television network that stream premier league games. There is the friendly bickering about whose team is the best. And some fans of some team like the Chelsea fans are accused of being noisy and talkative. While on the other hand, Arsenal fans are seen as people who may be suffering too much of ‘heartbreak” for what Arsene Wenger did to their team when he was there.
No wonder, Atiku Abubakar, the pdp presidential candidate tweeted recently that, “The overwhelming Arsenal defeat of Tottenham is just the booster I needed to hit my first campaign in Sokoto tomorrow.” This was before he travelled to Sokoto for his presidential campaign rally.
Guess what, it seems this endeared him to the heart of some young people. It seems the tweet was a political game to win some more people to himself. After the tweet, some people tweeted things like:
