    To have Atiku Abubakar as president of Nigeria in 2019 will be a great blessing to our Nation and will definitely get Nigeria working again.

      Atiku needs to pay for your English lessons and further education, not Black Panther tickets. Really sad. #moviesirentoo #ifyouknowyouknow #oversizedsnake #mineral bottle #tornsphincter

    PDP should get the memo that we dont want trial and error in 2019. We have suffered enough under this incompetent and ineffectual buffoons. 2019 it is either Atiku or Atiku.

    We don’t need people who will rule from Aso rock.we simply need people like Atiku who will come to electorate and listen to them.Watchinh a movie together with “ordinary people” is a way to listen to them and what they feel in their immediate life so as to better serve them

    HE Atiku Abubakar is a contemporary and digital man that understands what the people need at every point in time. I wish I was in that cinema as I have been procrastinating going to see that movie. Thank you so much sir for putting smile in the face of those you paid for their tickets we live you sir.

    HE Atiku Abubakar is very simple, real and down to earth. See how he followed the queue to get his ticket. This shows how close he is to the people.

    South East is for Atiku no doubt. All we are waiting for is for PDP to give him the ticket.

    1.Commendable! Someone who buys movie tickets for people and watches movies with them wouldn’t turn his back on his people when he’s voted into office.
    2. Former vice president is well know for his commitments and encourage youth to be self reliant, creative and innovative these are some of the factors that made him to contribute huge in our economy looking at his investment and number of employees.
    3.The political icon extended yet his philanthropic nature in a movie centre today at Abuja by buying the whole ticket for the people to enjoy a free gate, this is nothing if we look at how we handles and contribute in many IDP’s camp alone.
    4. This is nothing but a clear demonstration of statemanship and a noteworthy gesture ,that worth commendation from the public.
    5. I therefore urge our fellow compatriots, our society and Nigerians at large they should succumb, jubilate and dance for having a man of Atiku’s personality.

    6. Therefore, Atiku Abubakar is a classical name in terms of humanitarian, philanthropic lifestyle and encouraging young one. A man that believes in the well being of Nigerians and one Nigeria were we are all equal irrespective of our differences ethnically diverse, religiously and politically.
    7. We talking about a man who can go to the movies and decide to pay movie tickets for everyone so it’s just like another man would give things to those around him!
    9. Telling Atiku not to extend his philanthropic wings of welfarism to the public is like trying to collect a pack of candy from a child’s hand ,its hard and not looking likely. He will cry a river!

    Nice but most of the proceeds of this movie are going back to America. It could have been better if it is a Nigerian film you support like this.

      Yes my dear…but Nigerian owned cinemas will get a huge cut from screenings in Nigeria…and thay means better businesses and sustained livlihood for our people

    I somehow guessed this was going to interpreted as a campaign. @mr nuru… Because atiku bought tickets at a cinema, we should all fall in love in him and see him as one that’ll move Nigeria forward. I wonder when we’d see beyond all this charade. I fail to see the difference in strategy between Jonathan telling us he didn’t have shoes to osinbajo campaigning this way in 2015 and now to atiku buying tickets in a cinema.
    Besides, when he was VP, did you see or hear of him doing anything of this sort in public?

    There is more to buying of movie tickets.

    See how Atiku Media team bombarded this comment section, na wa o! Athiefku will NEVER be President! If he likes, let him pay Black Panther ticket fees for the entire Nigeria. And btw, Buhari has forever damaged the chance of any muslim Hausa/Fulani. If a Northerner must be President, bring forth a Christian Northerner. Na only you waka come?

    helloooo.. did Atiku buy the comment section of this page??

    I can’t but agree that this is a campaign ploy abi plot. Atiku is a lesser demon compared to Buhari. People keep saying atiku is bad. Who will vote for Fela Durotoye outside his family members and a few people. There’s also the issue of zoning. Till 2023, there is an unspoken rule that says the North has the 8yrs.
    But our real problem isn’t Atiku or Buhari alone. It’s an institutional overhaul we need. Legislative arm of government is key if we will ever get out of this quagmire.
