Previous Nigeria VP & presidential aspirants of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has denied posting 30 dishonest people in president Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
The announcement was discharged by Phrank Shaibu, a media associate to the PDP presidential aspirants.
Also the executive general of Atiku’s campaign association & previous legislative head of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, said the announcement was not approved by the previous Nigerian VP.
“Atiku Abubakar is a statesman and not in the habit of making unguarded and unsubstantiated claims about persons and institutions,” Deputy chairman of the PDP Presidential Campaign Council (South), Gbenga Daniel said.
“Atiku believes in the rule of law, and would not accuse people wrongly especially if no competent court of law has found them guilty.”
Daniel, who addressed writers in Abuja, said the media failed to understand the situation & raised up individual assessment to that of Atiku Abubakar.
The report came when Atiku was confronting hardened fraud accusations by the Nigeria government after visiting the United States for the first time in twelve years.
Information minister Lai Mohammed on Friday, January 18 said Atiku had inquiries to reply on a N156 million false business dealing at the extinct Platinum Habib Bank (PHB).
Atiku & the PDP, in any case, said he had no inquiries to reply.
