The Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP) Presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has congratulated Bola Tinubu on clinching the All Progressives Congress, (APC) presidential ticket.
Tinubu emerged victorious at the ruling party’s presidential primaries after scoring 1,271 votes to defeat his closest rivals, Rotimi Amaechi who scored 316 votes and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo with 235 votes.
Atiku Abubakar had earlier won the PDP Presidential primary election in May, after defeating Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike and others.
The former vice president, in a post on his Twitter page, congratulated the former governor of Lagos State.
He noted that the APC presidential primary was a hard-fought contest.
“Congratulations, @officialABAT, on your emergence as your party’s presidential candidate. It has been a hard-fought contest, but that you prevailed confirms your tenacity,” Atiku wrote.
