Atiku Abubakar, former vice president, and his son Mustapha Abubakar engaged in a hilarious Twitter banter over the outcome of Premier League match between Chelsea and Arsenal.

The match, which saw Arsenal in a 1-0 lead at the end of the first 45 minutes, eventually ended 2-1 in favour of Chelsea all thanks to Jorginho's second-half equaliser and Tammy Abraham's late winner.

Atiku’s son Mustapha, who is apparently a Chelsea fan, threw the first banter when he took to his handle @HHMustaphaAA to ask: "Daddy, How market?

He later went on to tweet: ‘Market no be good for Daddy today.'

Mustapha was responding to an earlier tweet by Atiku when he commended the first goal for Arsenal by Aubameyang.

The former presidential candidate in his response tweeted: “Musty, in the words of Timaya, I can’t kill myself.”

The response which got over 14,000 likes and almost 5,000 retweets as at the time of this report, also got a lot of reaction from Nigerians who joined the banter.

Some who tweeted teased Mustapha that he was not going to eat for one week, others jokingly called him out for disrespecting his old father while some other also joined the party to tease Atiku.
