Presidency Warns Atiku …Be careful, Avoid Treason …Defend Your Victory, Atiku Tells Buhari
Special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has cautioned the former vice president and presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar to avoid acts that could lead him into being tried for treason.
According to the presidential aide, she saw a photo of Atiku, who lost the presidential election on February 23rd, with some weird inscriptions adding that he should be glad he’s walking free and not languishing in jail.
Although she didn’t mention what the inscriptions on Atiku’s photo were, she noted that the former vice president should counsel himself to avoid being tried for treason, adding that Atiku should face his court case to challenge Buhari’s victory rather than stirring up mischief.
She wrote on Twitter on Tuesday: “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.”
Meanwhile posters of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, with the inscriptions: ‘The real and the right’ have surfaced in the streets of Abuja.
The posters, which also bore ‘Pukka’ a Hindi word, which literally means ‘Genuine’ emerged after a report on how Atiku allegedly enlisted the assistance of two cerebral lawyers in Washington DC, United States of America to lobby the American government for recognition as winner of the last presidential election.
Many of the posters were seen in the Central Business District of the Abuja..
Findings indicate that the posters were sponsored by an Adamawa-based political support group, the Atiku Deservation Movement.
Meanwhile, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, has denied spending of $30,000 to hire a US lobby group to persuade the United States Congress to stop the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari.
I a statement by his media aide, Mr. Paul Ibe, Atiku described the latest allegation instigated by the Buhari campaign as a ‘total fabrication.’
