Atiku Debunks Spending $30000 To Lobby US To Stop Buhari’s Inauguration

The Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Presidential Candidate and former Vice President of Nigeria, Alh. Atiku Abubakar has debunked as ‘total fabrication’ an allegation suggesting that he spent $30,000 to hire a US lobby group to persuade the US Congress to stop the inauguration of President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Atiku in a statement by his media aide, Mr. Paul Ibe alleged that the allegation was instigated by the Buhari campaign.

Reacting to what he described as ‘shameless lies’ Atiku’s Media Adviser, Mr. Paul Ibe, stressed that the latest dirty propaganda against the former Vice President didn’t come as a surprise because lying has so far become their only bragging rights of competence.

In a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, he explained that ‘lying has become a culture to the APC administration and therefore, we are not surprised by their latest diversionary allegations’.

“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.

“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”, the statement added.

Atiku, however emphasized that no amount of diversionary propaganda and fake news campaign by APC will stop him from continuing the court action he started to reclaim the alleged stolen mandate.
