Agbada galore as Atiku, other PDP chiefs storm powerful northern state, shade Wike &co with Arewa fashion
Legit.ng earlier reported that Atiku Abubakar, the PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 election, has announced his arrival in Ilorin, the Kwara state capital to continue his presidential campaign for next year's poll.
The PDP presidential flagbearer shared photos of some awesome Arewa fashion statements at the country home of the former senate president, Bukola Saraki.
The PDP uniform fashion statement could be a veiled response to Nyesom Wike's camp which has always been appearing in similar styles since both camps started the 2023 election campaign.
