- The gaffe by Bola Tinubu, the flag bearer of the All Progressives Congress who prayed for God to bless the Peoples Democratic Party has been appreciated by the opposition party
- PDP's national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, described the prayer by Tinubu for the party as prophetic

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has described the remarks made by Bola Tinubu, the 2023 presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as prophetic.
The opposition party in a statement issued on Tuesday, November 15, said Tinubu's prayer for the PDP confirms his innermost conviction that the party represents the hope and aspiration of the majority of Nigerians for a secure, prosperous future under a united country.
Signed by its national publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba, the statement described Tinubu's prayer point as a divine proclamation that the hope for Nigeria, which he harped on can only come from the PDP.

The remark by the APC flag bearer has continued to elicit reactions with many noting that from the video, it is obvious that Tinubu is not strong enough to serve as Nigeria's president.
Also reacting in this regard, the PDP said:
"This perhaps explains why Asiwaju Tinubu was incoherent and had no concrete message to Nigerians at the flag-off of his campaign.
"The APC presidential candidate should be more concerned with his narcotic indictment and inconsistencies in his personal biodata of name, age, ancestry, education and record of work which Nigerians have the right to know."
The party further called for Tinubu's withdrawal from the 2023 presidential campaign slated to hold in February.
