Atiku treats knee injury in Dubai

FORMER vice president and chieftain of All Progres­sives Congress (APC) Atiku Abubakar issued a stern warning to rumour-mongers not to drive a wedge be­tween him and President Muhammadu Buhari on the 2019 presidency.

Atiku was reacting to re­ports that he held meetings with his supporters with re­gards to the 2019 presiden­tial election.

He advised those he de­scribed as “political mis­chief makers” to allow him enjoy his peace and desist from sinister propaganda designed to draw a wedge between him and Buhari which could cause needless distrust and distractions in government.

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

Sunnews reports that a was statement released by his media office in Abuja yesterday and signed by his Media Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe said the former vice president is embarrassed by the deliberate falsehood being spread against him by political opponents who were bent on causing dis­traction for President Bu­hari at a time all energies should be channelled into helping the President actu­alise 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 a private affair, which should not be politicised by any­body to achieve sinister ob­jectives.
