The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Celebration (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has described feedback by the Presidency suggesting that he and his get together are sabotaging the Muhammadu Buhari-led authorities as lies.
Minister of Info, Lai Mohamed, had stated that Atiku and his get together, have been doing every thing to over warmth the polity.
Mohammed additional described their alleged actions as an act of treason.
Nevertheless, in response to the claims, Atiku by way of an announcement by his media aide, Mazi Paul Ibe, described the allegations as all lies.
Atiku stated, “It is not surprising that such a despicable lie is emanating from Mr. Lai Mohammed, President Buhari’s aptly named Minister of Information.”
Full assertion by Atiku Abubakar:
My consideration has been drawn to accusations by the Muhammadu Buhari led administration in opposition to the candidate of the Presidential Peoples Democratic Celebration within the 2019 elections and former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, alleging that he has made treasonable statements.
It’s not stunning that such a despicable lie is emanating from Mr. Lai Mohammed, President Buhari’s aptly named Minister of Info.
Lai Mohammed is so related to lies that even Vice President Yemi Osinbajo stated, on Monday, Could 13, 2019, as follows:
Folks like Lai Mohammed, Abba Kyari, Adamu Adamu they’re normally very properly behaved throughout the Ramadan. However I’m not even positive that that’s true anymore.
When we’ve a state of affairs the place even those that employed him know that Lai Mohammed is a liar, who will even lie throughout the holy month of Ramadan, then why ought to Nigerians be shocked at this newest lie?
Mr Lai Mohammed is simply being intelligent by half when he says “It beggars belief that a candidate who prides himself as a democrat can so allow desperation to becloud his sense of propriety to such an extent that he will be associating with anti-democratic forces or making inflammatory statements.”
Atiku Abubakar is a person of peace and a thoroughbred democrat. It’s preposterous that those that threatened to ‘soak the dog and the baboon in blood’ at the moment are audacious sufficient to level the finger at lifelong democrats. Really, if the farmer doesn’t elevate the alarm on time, the thief will accuse him of being a thief.
How can a person who wined and dined with Nigeria’s most brutal dictator, how can a person who overthrew a democratically elected President and held a grudge in opposition to him even in loss of life (as evidenced by the empty condolence register he left in Sokoto, final 12 months) accuse a person who has by no means been as a lot as related to such tendencies, of being an anti-democrat?
We need to know why the desperation on the a part of the Muhammadu Buhari authorities to rope within the Peoples Democratic Celebration and its Presidential candidate in phantom plots? Clearly, President Buhari desires to replay the Phantom plot saga of his now deceased mentor, who threw former President Olusegun Obasanjo in jail after falsely accusing him of treason so as to perpetuate himself in energy.
May or not it’s that they’re now conscious that the electoral fraud they perpetrated over the last Presidential election is about to be uncovered past a shadow of a doubt?
If anyone is “beating the drums of war”, it’s exactly those that have issued statements threatening Nigerians and foreigners alike with “body bags”.
For the avoidance of doubt, let me inform the minister of disinformation that Atiku Abubakar resisted the Abacha dictatorship, of which President Muhammadu Buhari was a distinguished member, and it’s his resistance and the sacrifice of his co-travellers, like chief MKO Abiola and Alex Ekwueme, amongst others, that gave rise to the democracy that the present authorities is now trampling on.
Mr. Lai Mohammed is suggested to face the cesspool of corruption that has been uncovered in his ministry by the investigative web site, Premium Instances, which revealed that Mr. Mohammed’s fingers could also be stickier than sticky glue.
