The presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the 2019 election and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has raised an alarm of an alleged plot by anti-democratic forces to tarnish his reputation.
In a statement signed by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, in Abuja, yesterday, Atiku said it was becoming clear that some elements have made themselves available for use against him.
The statement read: “We wish to blow the whistle as an early warning alert of the grandiose scheme being put together by some unscrupulous elements aimed at jeopardizing the reputation of His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, in the coming days and weeks.
“By the merit of what is beginning to unfold, there are plans to create some upset across the country whereby alleged perpetrators of such crimes will engage in phantom names dropping of Atiku Abubakar and some senior personalities in Peoples Democratic Party.
