Atiku Lucky To Be Walking Free – Presidency


Gunmen attack PDP's witnesses

The Presidency says the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Nigeria’s main opposition party, Atiku Abubakar, should be glad he is walking free.

Naija News reports that the special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, made this comment on the micro-blogging site, on Tuesday evening.

Onochie said she saw a photo of Abubakar, who lost the presidential election on February 23rd, with some weird inscriptions on it, calling on the PDP Presidential candidate to counsel himself to avoid being tried for treason.

Although she didn’t mention what the inscriptions on Abubakar’s photo were, the Presidential aide, however, advised the Presidential candidate to face his court case to challenge Buhari’s victory rather than stirring up mischief.

Her words: “I just returned to Abuja and saw Atiku’s photos with some weird inscriptions.

“For one who is lucky to be walking free, whatever he is planning, he shouldn’t forget that we have a President in place.

“Nigerians will insist that treason be treated as treason. He should counsel himself.

“When you lose an election, you either congratulate the victor or you challenge the election results in court.

“After foot-dragging, Atiku has now managed to go to court. It’s in the best interest of the nation that he continues in that legal path instead of stirring mischief,” She wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.
