Former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, voiced his disappointment and sorrow regarding Arsenal FC’s 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa in the English Premier League (EPL) last Sunday.

Aston Villa secured the victory with two late goals from Leon Bailey and Ollie Watkins, sealing the fate of the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.

Bailey’s breakthrough in the 84th minute shattered the deadlock, leaving Arsenal supporters stunned.

Just three minutes later, Watkins further dashed their hopes by doubling Aston Villa’s lead, sending a hush over the Emirates Stadium.

Atiku, the former Governor of Adamawa State, took to his X handle (formerly Twitter) to share his perspective on the match.

Despite the setback, he emphasized that Arsenal’s pursuit of the English Premier League title is far from over.
