Atiku Not In Presidential Race For Drug Trafficking, Aide Fires Back At Tinubu

Paul Ibe, media aide to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar tells Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress flagbearer, that his prinicpal is not running for presidency in the 2023 elections to engage in drug trafficking, money laundering, forgery and perjury.

Ibe said this in a telephone conversation with Channels Television on Saturday, noting those are the territory of the All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Ahmed Tinubu.

According to him, Atiku is only concerned about recovering Nigeria for the good of all.

He added that the PDP candidate is running to make Nigeria better for Nigerians.

Recall that on Friday, in Delta State, Tinubu had mocked Atiku for contesting several times to become Nigeria’s president.

“There are few of us left running, one says he is Atiku, how many times has he been running? He is always on the run and he is tired. Tell him to go and sit down. Enough is enough,” Tinubu said.

But Ibe responded, “It’s only in this country that you put people who are sane in the same environment with people who are mental. It is really unfortunate.

“Let me start with where Atiku is not running to. He is not running to drug trafficking and money laundering. That’s Asiwaju’s territory. He is not running to forgery and perjury, forging documents and all. He is not running there. He is not running to a shaded past, early stages of life that are unknown. He is not running to hiding one’s medical state.

“He is running to make Nigeria better for Nigerians; he is running to use his experience to transform and recover Nigeria for the good of all. He is running to unify the country that has been divided by over seven years of a clueless and incompetent APC administration foisted on us by characters like Tinubu. That’s why he is running.”
