Atiku, Obi, Tinubu in fresh battle

Recall that Atiku and Obi recently commented on the state of insecurity in the country. While Atiku asked President Tinubu to resign if he could not stay in the country and solve its challenges, Obi decried the state of kidnapping and killings in the country and visited victims' families.

However, the presidency reacted to Atiku's call, saying the former vice president was still nursing a "hangover" from his defeat in the 2023 presidential election.

Ahmad's tweet reads:

"I like the way the Presidency puts Peter Obi in the right place, despite his unending comments since after his loss, and there has never been a direct response to him. Meanwhile, Atiku has been receiving back-to-back responses from the State House. There are different levels of engagement at play."
