I Will Always Be Loyal To Buhari - Atiku Abubakar


Former Vice President and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar, has dismissed a newspaper report alleging that he has formed a new political platform under which he will run for President in 2019, with Ondo State Governor Segun Mimiko, as his running mate.

In a statement signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, he said the report bore the features of a political hatchet job planted by his opponents who are desperately trying to invent events in order to draw a wedge between him and President Buhari on one hand and the APC leadership on the other hand.

“Some people of bad faith trying tooth and nail to spread the seeds of discord in the party, and destroy the much needed unity, harmony and cohesion, which are the pillars of strength for every political organisation,” the statement said.


Mr. Ibe said despite all the smear campaigns and reputation lynching and sponsored falsehoods, Atiku’s loyalty to President Buhari and the APC leadership would not be shaken an inch.

He said Atiku “would ordinarily have ignored the malicious report, but says he chose to react, lest his silence would be mistaken as an admission of the falsehoods published against him.”
