The presidency has denied feports that the EFCC raided the home of Atiku’s son and froze the bank accounts of Atiku Abubakar’s running mate, Peter Obi upon orders from Buhari.
This comes after the public outcry over what seems like a political wittch hunt especially as Peter Obi has never had any case to answer with the EFCC before emerging as the running mate of Atiku Abubarkar.
While reacting to the matter, presidential spokesman, Garba Shzhu tweeted:
“The story about the raid “ordered by Buhari-led government” on the home of PDP Presidential Candidate, @atiku’s son and the fairy tale on the alleged blockage of the bank accounts of the running mate, Governor @PeterObi and his family are both untrue,……and should be dismissed as just another manifestation of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP’s growing expertise in fake news. Nigerians must be becoming wary by now, of a political party with absolutely nothing to offer in the coming elections and has instead, transformed into a knight in shining armor, slaying the truth.It is impossible to find in Nigeria today, anyone propagating fake news more than the PDP. Our advice to Nigerians is: ignore them.”
