Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on digital communication, Tolu Ogunlesi has tackled the multi-award winning aritste on some of the said posts that articulated Atiku as a better candidate.
Reacting to Davido’s endorsement of Atiku, Ogunlesi, indirectly took a swipe at the Director General of Atiku’s Campaign, Senator Bukola Saraki, saying he [Saraki] truncated Lagos-Ibadan Expressway – he added that only Buhari/Osinbajo deserves the vote of South/West .
True. Help us remind Omo Baba Oloye that there was Taaty Billion inside Budget for Lagos-Ibadan Expressway before he cut it lika that lika this. But no cause for alarm, Buhari has given full assurance the project will be completed. Only one ticket deserves SW votes: PMB/PYO 😊
