See What Alhaji Atiku Abubakar Said After Arsenal Finally Won A Game In The EPL

Arsenal FC were back to winning ways in the EPL on Wednesday evening after they put four (4) goals past visiting Norwich City at the Emirates stadium. In what looked like a much better performance by the Gunners, the result got a lot of fans complimenting the efforts of Mikael Arteta, the club manager and the team in general.

A brace from captain Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, new signing Cedric Soares and Granit Xhaka was enough to secure the three maximum points for the Gunners and shoot them as high as 7th position on the EPL log. The Gunners have not had it all rosy this season following Unai Emery's uninspiring reign as well as a few dressing room and transfer set backs.

Nigeria's ex Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar who is an ardent supporter of the North London side took to his Twitter page to celebrate the win. He hilariously said that Arsenal could have scored one more goal to make it 5 and ensure that they spell his name ATIKU. This elicited an array of response from his followers and other Arsenal fans who were full of excitement.

Atiku who was PDP'S flag bearer in last year's presidential elections is a lover of sports and he has often been seen commending the efforts of sportsmen particularly football players representing Nigeria in recent times.

The 74 year old Adamawa elder statesman is one of the ruling elites from Nigeria who support Arsenal alongside Africa's richest man Alhaji Aliko Dangote and former Senate President and Kwara State Dr Bukola Saraki.
