President-elect, Bola Tinubu, quickly responded to the PDP’s black uniform protest in Abuja on Monday, describing it as a “theater of the absurd.” Tinubu criticized Atiku and the PDP for choosing to dance ‘skelewu’ and causing a traffic nuisance to residents of Abuja on their way to work, rather than gathering evidence to present before the Election Tribunal.
‘Skelewu’ is a title of song and dance by Nigerian music act, Davido.
According to a statement released by Bayo Onanuga, the Director of Media and Publicity for the APC Presidential Campaign Council, the President-elect expressed his bewilderment over Atiku Abubakar’s behavior. Atiku, a former Vice President of Nigeria and a statesman, had already gone to court to challenge the electoral outcome, yet he was disturbing public peace by causing a commotion.
Onanuga further quoted the President-elect as asking why Atiku, who is a presidential candidate, would have so much free time on his hands to engage in such activities. The statement added that Atiku’s behavior was a departure from the promise he made to seek redress in court over the outcome of the 25 February Presidential election.
