Sahara Reporters reports that former vice president, Atiku Abubakar and Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti have allegedly been selected to represent the Peoples Democratic Party as its presidential candidates in 2019.
The report says that the story came from a member of the party.
The report also incited reactions from Nigerians on Twitter:
Atiku never see anything. Nigerians are getting ready for him. The Masses’ anger that will consume him is still doing press up!

Something isn’t right about the way Atiku seems to jump from party to party…..if I had the power I’d just hand over the 2019 prize to NOI.

Fayose is a national disgrace! A disgrace to his generation. IMO, ekiti people deserve him. Tbh. Traded their future for rice. Smh

In as much as Saharareporters are political muckrakers that practice gabbage journalism, Atiku is a solid candidate. Dont know about Fayose.

Good, we will love it if PDP presents an Igbo candidate and an Ijaw VP candidate.
