Former vice president Abubakar Atiku has caused tongues to wag after he wept, as he obtained the People’s Democratic Party(PDP) nomination form for presidential election.
According to reports, some support groups, had gone to the Presidential aspirant and volunteered to buy the nomination form for him – Hence Atiku, couldn’t hold the tears back.
Reason H.E @atiku broke down in tears:
Atiku was in his campaign office preparing to go purchase His form, but unknowing to him, his youths support group contributed money to do that on his behalf, they presented it to him in his office, he was overwhelmed by the show of love. pic.twitter.com/R7L3PM3R4r

A lot of Nigerians, berated Atiku for trying to blackmail the emotions of Nigerians and called him out for what they termed ‘gimmicks’. They took to social media to express that they can’t be swayed by Atiku’s tears.
However, they were those he felt Atiku had genuine reasons to wipe, and said they were fully behind him.
See what they wrote below
So because @atiku wept to show his emotions, y'all want to start dragging him. Real people weep to express loss, joy, gratitude, frustration and more. It might have been a gimmick as you chose to interpret it but I choose to see a human who's true with his feelings, not a robot.

If it worked for Buhari, who knows? Maybe it will work for Atiku in 2023. pic.twitter.com/Dq5nanvc9v

Atiku's tears can't deceive Nigerians! If he really cares about Nigeria, he should return all the loot that belongs to Nigerians. Real tears will come when he looses the Primaries & the worst tears would come after winning the primaries then loses to BUHARI at general elections!

@bukolasaraki is a criminal who sees the back of others but completely blind to the dent on his own back. His presidential ambition is inordinate but if PDP is careless, he will get the ticket, that was why Atiku wept yesterday. Atiku knows he has a great gambler and crook to

These politicians don't rate us o.
Saraki said we begged him to run. Atiku said we paid for his nomination form and he cried for joy.
Moghalu went to form deadly alliance and they changed it for him.
I see no changes. Tueh
