The former Vice President stated strongly that his loyalty to President Buhari remains unshaken.
Atiku described as a load of hogwash a newspaper report alleging that he has formed a new political platform.
The report had alleged that Atiku was forming the platform under which he intended to run for President in 2019.
The paper also alleged he had selected Ondo State Governor, Olusegun Mimiko, as his running mate.
Media Adviser to Atiku, Paul Ibe, in a statement said the report bore the features of a political hatchet job planted by his opponents.
Atiku Abubakar Declares Unshaken Loyalty To Buhari
He described them as 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.
According to Mr. Ibe, the report was,
“…an incompetent product of fiction, so shallow and vacuous that even its authors could not validate its credibility with reliable and verifiable sources.
“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.”
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 rather he chose to react.
Otherwise, his silence could be mistaken as an admission of the falsehoods published against him.
