Many Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the opening of a Gofundme account to enable the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar raise legal fees.
The Gofundme is to help the PDP presidential candidate raise the sum of $100,000 legal fees required to contest the outcome of the 2019 presidential elections in court.
This creation of a Gofundme account for Atiku, a former vice president and renowned businessman with investments in many parts of the country has sparked some hilarious reactions on Twitter and we couldn’t help but bring them to you.
Ladies and gentlemen, @atiku is so broke he needs the services of Segafraud to raise a GoFundMe account to "defend his stolen mandate"

Dear @Segrlink ,
Atiku does not need a Gofundme from the masses to pursue a legal redress for his failed political misadventure.
Atiku is a billionaire for crying out loud, what is wrong with you?

Atiku is not poor and can NEVER be poor. Go and pay ur junior ones school fees, big boy and girl. Leave fake Gofundme for Atiku. Help ur family first b4 u will help a billionaire. Pay ur house rent ooo b4 u will pay Atiku’s legal fees

As though the dollars they received to market a thief to Nigerians isn't enough, they have opened a Gofundme Account to help Atiku raise money to challenge the Presidential elections in Courts.

I'm 100% in support of the steps Atiku has taken to reclaim his stolen mandate. But telling me to donate to a Gofundme page of a very rich man who spent billions on campaigns, is a bit asking for too much. I never even chop this morning oo. 😂
