Atiku disowns ‘I’ll lead massive protest’ purported statement

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has disowned a statement credited to him in the social media that he is prepared to lead a nationwide protest if he loses his ongoing petition against the election results upon which President Muhammadu Buhari was sworn in for a second term in office.
In a tweet on Sunday, Atiku who was the presidential candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the election, described the purported statement as fake.

His tweet, signed as ‘AA'”, the acronym for his two popular names Atiku Abubakar, read:

“The quote purportedly attributed to me with respect to INEC Server, an issue currently before the Presidential Election Petition Tribunal is fake and the handiwork of mischief makers. -AA”.
