Atiku in a message on Twitter on Wednesday said Tinubu won the presidential primary of the APC because of his tenacity.

The former vice president said: Congratulations Bola Tinubu, on your emergence as your party’s presidential candidate.

“It has been a hard-fought contest, but that you (Tinubu) prevailed confirms your tenacity.”
