The Spokesperson for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has dismissed claims that the former vice president is sick and had been flown abroad for medical attention.
Atiku’s media adviser, Paul Ibe, said the PDP candidate will on Monday arrive London, but not as a result of ill health, according to The PUNCH.
Ibe said this via his Twitter handle on Sunday saying, “For the avoidance of doubt, the presidential candidate of the PDP and former Vice President of Nigeria (1999-2007) will be arriving in London on Monday, January 9 for meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday on the invitation of the British Government.”
A spokesman of the Atiku/Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, Senator Dino Melaye, has also dismissed the report as he urged Nigerians to “disregard the lies of unrepentant liars. Atiku is 100 per cent fit and in super form, health-wise. The British government invited the leading presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, just like that they had invited Bola Tinubu and Peter Obi earlier.”
