The tweet was about the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, during this time as the vice-president of Nigeria, gathered and presided over Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai, World Trade Organization DG, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Former Minister of Education, Oby Ezekwesili, Governor of Anambra state, Charles Soludo, and Oby Ezekwesili, with claims that Atiku presided over the most competent economic team in Nigeria’s history.
The claim in the campaign poster by PDP reads;
As vice-president, Atiku Abubakar assembled and presided over the most competent economic team in Nigeria’s history.
While the tweet by PPD reads;
2023: The @OfficialPDPNig Presidential Candidate, @atiku is committed to working assiduously to achieve a United, Secure and Economically Viable Nigeria, that will work for all citizens irrespective of their social status, religious, ethnic or political biases. #Atiku4SURE

Oby Ezekwesili who reacted to the tweet, moments after it was posted, accepted that this might be an honest mistake, but maintained that what the party is saying is false and never happened, “it is false and misleading because Atiku allegedly never did” – she said, adding that the PDP used her photo without her consent as she further asked for the tweet to be removed.
Her (Oby Ezekwesili)tweet reads;
It might be an innocent mistake, but this statement is false and therefore extremely misleading, @OfficialPDPNig . He did not. It is also wrong that you have used my picture in your campaign flier without my consent.
Please do kindly remove this immediately.
