Desperate Tinubu Ready To Throw Buhari ‘Under The Bus’ – Atiku’s Aide

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has accused Tinubu of pretending to be on the side of the people by criticising and distancing himself from the administration of President Buhari.

The former vice president said the APC candidate is desperately trying to attack the failed policies of the present administration which he had vigorously defended since 2015.

Recall that Tinubu, who had days back slammed the Buhari government for the redesigning of the naira notes and fuel scarcity,  had on Tuesday in Calabar fired the present administration for failing to fix the exchange rate.
