The campaign office of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has accused some social media sites of spreading fake news that he plans to leave the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
“For the avoidance of any doubts, Atiku remains the frontline aspirant for the presidential ticket of the PDP, said a statement obtained by Per Second News Sunday.
“In the past two months, Atiku Abubakar has moved across states in the country consulting with stakeholders of the PDP and explaining to them his agenda encapsulated in the acronym JOBS: Jobs, Opportunity, Being united and Security) for Nigeria.
“The Campaign calls on supporters of Atiku to remain steadfast and see the contrived news of defection as an an attempt to distract it from the set task of winning the PDP ticket and the 2019 presidential election by the grace of God.”
“Atiku’s passion and commitment to winning the PDP primaries is without any compromise and to assume that he will abandon the hard work he has done with the positive results he is getting from the stakeholders of the party is to say the least preposterous and unthinkable.
