The spokesman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council during the just concluded elections, Senator Dino Melaye, has refuted some speculations that his principal, Atiku Abubakar, will work with President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Recall that Atiku came second behind the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate in the 2023 presidential race. After a fierce contest, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) confirmed Tinubu as the winner of the February 25th poll.
It said the former Governor of Lagos State won more votes than Atiku and third placed Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).
Reacting, however, to some claims that PDP’s Atiku is retiring from politics after losing at polls, Melaye via his verified Twitter handle on Monday, said such claims should be disregarded.
He also faulted the claims that the former Vice President will be joining hands with Tinubu who succeeds President Muhammadu Buhari in May 2023.
“The malicious lie and propaganda going round that Atiku is retiring from politics and joining hand with Tinubu is a terrible lie from the pit of hell and should be disregarded. Light and darkness don’t relate. Nigerians should be rest assured that Atiku is coming very soon,” the spokesman of the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign noted on the microblogging platform, assuring that the PDP flag bearer would soon reclaim his mandate.
Rant HQ reports that Atiku faulted the outcome of the February 25th presidential poll claiming that the election was flawed and rigged in favour of Tinubu.
The PDP presidential candidate has since headed to court to claim his alleged stolen mandate.
