Atiku denies declaring for presidency


Former Nigerian vice president and a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress(APC) Atiku Abubakar has denied declaring intention in presidency.

This is coming after a video of the former vice president declaring his presidential ambition went viral on media outlets.

Atiku Abubakar reacting to the video said its a video from his 2011 political race adding that the video was a “bad job of bad people with bad intentions.” 

He said such propaganda was being deliberately promoted by political opponents in order to create acrimony, who are “incompetent and bumbling political novices who cannot see the loopholes in their own stories.”

He explained, “While fake news merchants don’t bother about ethics and their reputation”, the media has more to lose if they take stories from such disreputable groups without verification.

Atiku advised those involved in such  “laughable and unintelligent propaganda of lies and intentional mischief to find something useful to do with their time instead of using his name to achieve their malicious political objectives.”
