Tonight, @PeterObi, the Vice-Presidential Candidate of our great party, @OfficialPDPNig, reeled out the facts. He showed Nigerians across the nation why we need to #GetNigeriaWorkingAgain! #2019Debate

Delighted that our VP candidate, Peter Obi demonstrated high level of understanding of issues relating to the economy of this country. In PDP, we have brains in abundance, while in the other party, they have lies in abundance.
We will surely get Nigeria working again.#2019Debate

Nigeria needs a Vice President like Peter Obi.
Well articulated, a sound economist who understands how Nigeria's economy works.

I commend @PeterObi for knocking the others for six and doing a great job in last nights Vice Presidential debate. @ProfOsinbajo fudged and lied his way through the whole thing whilst the other 3 participants were nothing but an embarrassing and distasteful joke. #2019Debate.

Osinbajo should be aware that not only his 16 years of @OfficialPDPNig rot untrue, but even more importantly, Peter Obi was not part of those years. Obi fought with the PDP In Anambra. He was impeached by the PDP. How can you blame such a man for 16 years of PDP rot? #2019Debate

I love the way our Vice Presidential Candidate @PeterObi is ‘Atikulating’ his points. It’s instructive to note that we need a Vice President who is economically savvy and can get the job done. #LetsGetNigeriaWorkingAgain #2019Debate
