Ex-VP Atiku Denies Hosting 2019 Political Meetings In Dubai

Published

Atiku-AbubakarA former Vice President and chieftain of All Progressives Congress, APC, Atiku Abubakar, has advised political mischief makers to allow him enjoy his peace and desist from sinister propaganda aimed at drawing a wedge between him and President Muhammadu Buhari, in order to cause needless distrust and distractions in the president’s government.

Reacting to insinuations by what he called “political mischief makers and enemies of unity”, who allege that he has been hosting political meetings at Burj Al-Arab, Dubai, the former vice president said contrary to the rumours being peddled by political opponents, he is currently in Dubai with his family for physiotherapy on his injured knee.

A press statement released by his media office in Abuja on Sunday and signed by his Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, said the former vice president is embarrassed by the deliberate falsehoods being spread against him by political opponents who are bent on causing distraction for President Buhari at a time all energies should be channeled into helping the president actualize his change agenda.

Describing rumour mongers as “ill-motivated busybodies that don’t wish the country well”, the Turaki Adamawa explained that his medical treatment is his private affairs, which should not be politicised by anybody to achieve sinister objectives.

The statement quoted the former vice president as saying he is entitled to his to enjoy his private life, including the right to attend to his health, without being harassed and lied against by political opponents.

Contrary to the insinuations by political opponents, Mr. Abubakar pointed out that the success of the Buhari administration has been his preoccupation, and that any true APC member should have the same zeal.

According to him, rumour mongers that seek to cause distrust and distraction in Buhari’s government do not mean well for the APC administration.

The former vice president further said with the challenge of providing good governance for the country and creating job opportunities for Nigerians, including reducing the impact of poverty, President Buhari needs all the goodwill and support in this endeavour.

“Whether at home or abroad, the Turaki is preoccupied with his unassailable support to President Buhari and his administration, especially in this critical time, as it works assiduously to turn the fortunes of our dear country around and make Nigeria work for the greater good of Nigerians”.

The Nigerian former number two man stated that rumour mongers and mischief makers are toxic to the progress of the APC and the country at large, adding that the campaigns are gone, and therefore, all energies should be constructively devoted to the success of the Buhari administration.

“This is yet another plot of the enemies of our country and democracy to divide, divert attention and distract the APC in its avowed commitment to secure the country, provide jobs for the mass of unemployed youths, build needed critical infrastructure, enthrone a regime of probity and accountability and pull the country out of the economic woods it has been consigned to by locust years of mismanagement”.

    Former Vice President and chieftain of the APC Alh Atiku Abubakar is right to distance himself from the schemes of frustrated political mischief makers trying to distract the administration of president Muhammadu Buhari. This is yet another plot of the enemies of Change designed to divide and distract the APC from fulfilling its promise to Nigerians. This plan of theirs has failed spectacularly and should be exposed for what it is.

    Bad belle people allow Turaki enjoy his holiday and medical treatment.
    Anyway it’s a good thing people are talking about you sir, it’s shows that you’re still a very important figure politically and otherwise but mischief makers/political opponent should understand that the former vice president has stated countless time that he’s fully in support of the APC/Buhari Presidency and will do all in his power to see the present administration succeed.
    Long live Turaki Nigeria and Get well soon sir.
