Atiku fires back at Buhari, warns him to desist from lies fabrication

Though the 2019 presidential election has been won and lost, undercurrents trailing the new journey at the tribunal are still launching random outbursts once in awhile.
Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has dismissed as “total fabrication” the latest allegation instigated by the Buhari campaign that he spent $30,000 to hire a US lobby group to persuade the US Congress to stop the inauguration of President Buhari.
Reacting to what he calls “shameless lies”, Atiku’s Media Adviser, Mr. Paul Ibe, says the latest dirty propaganda against the former Vice President “didn’t come as a surprise to us because lying has so far become their only bragging rights of competence.” In a statement in Abuja midweek, Ibe explained that “lying has become a culture to the APC administration and therefore, we are not surprised by their latest diversionary allegations.”
The statement argued that “since Atiku resisted pressure not to go to court, the APC has been behaving like a cat on hot bricks because the outcome of the 2019 elections has exposed and shattered the facade of their dubious integrity.”
“The APC are behaving nervously like a thief living under the fear of being exposed and shamed” and that “they are now using fake news against Atiku instead of focusing on defending themselves in the court.”
“For a party that has broken the worst record in election rigging, the APC doesn’t have any iota of integrity to be taken seriously by anybody”, the statement added.
Ibe further explained that “Atiku’s court case has become their biggest burden because it exposes their integrity as a sham, and instead of defending their stolen mandate in court, they are now using fake news to divert public attention from the historic electoral heist they have committed against Nigerians.”
Atiku added that no amount of diversionary propaganda and fake news campaign by APC will stop Atiku Abubakar from continuing the court action he started to reclaim the stolen mandate.
