Nigerians have taken to their Twitter handle to fire heavy shots at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential candidate in the February 23rd Presidential election, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for dilly-dallying in his quest to head to court to seek redress after losing to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Some have alleged that he has been paying people to ask him to congratulate All Progressive Congress(APC) Candidate, Muhammadu Buhari so that if he eventually drops the case, it would look like it was the pressure.
Seeing that he stands no chance in court, he is paying people to come and beg him so that if he eventually drops the case, he will say it was pressure…Atiku must go to court #AtikuGoToCourt

Who are the idiots begging Atiku not to go to court?
Why won't he go to court? It is his fundamental right… He should go, he must go.
It will better or democracy. PMB did three times.
Stop the sakamanje and go to court; you go cry come back. #AtikuGoToCourt

Kindly go to court and forget all these dilly-dally wasting of time like Suarez tactics. #AtikuGoToCourt

National Broadcast: PDP Slams Buhari Over ‘Disappointing, Empty’ Speech – PDP
Recall that Buhari in his speech called for an end to the protest, adding that his government had already accepted and started implementing demands of the protesters.
He, however, failed to acknowledge the shooting of protesters by soldiers of the Nigerian Army at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Reacting in a statement on Thursday night by its spokesperson, Kola Ologbodinyan, the PDP said Buhari’s address was depressing and failed empathy test.
The party appealed to Nigerians, particularly the youth, to remain calm and allow a return to normal life in the collective quest for peaceful co-existence in the overall interest of the nation.
PDP Asks Buhari To Stop Killing Of #EndSARS Protesters Across Nigeria
This was contained in a statement titled “EndSARS- Lekki Massacre,” signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbondiyan, late on Tuesday.
Ologbodiyan said, “The Peoples Democratic Party, condemns in very strong terms, the killing of peaceful protesters at the Lekki Toll Gate in Lagos as well as other parts of our country.
“It is shocking that security agents and, in some cases, thugs, were reportedly deployed to end the lives of promising Nigerians. This, to say the least, is saddening.
“Those responsible for the heinous murder of the innocent and harmless Nigerians must account for their nefarious acts.
“The PDP calls on President Muhammadu Buhari to immediately direct an end to these wanton killings across our nation.
#EndSARS: Gov Bello Warns Protesters Against Overthrowing Buhari
He stated this during an interview with Africa Independent Television AIT on Monday night.
Bello called on his fellow state governors to tack charge in their respective states so as to prevent loss of lives and properties due to attacks by hoodlums.
He, however, warned Nigerian youths to resist the temptation of using the current situation in the country to seek an undemocratic change in leadership.
The Governor warned that those interested in the presidency must wait till 2023 and go through democratic processes.
He urged the protesting youths to leave the streets and embrace dialogue.
