Atliku Says There is A Plot Against His Associates
It is few days to the 2019 presidential election and Atiku Abubakar has raised alarm over a plot against his winning the election.
The People’s Democratic Party(PDP) presidential aspirant said that there is a plot to arrest some of his key associates.
The former vice-president in a statement issued in Abuja by his special assistant on public communication, Phrank Shaibu, accused an unnamed governor from northeast and a prominent minister in the current administration of working in cahoots with APC to achieve the plot.
According to him, the arrest is a plan by the APC to maneuver the electoral process.
The statement read: ”The architects of this plot believe that unless the APC destabilizes the main opposition party and gets rid of the key associates of the PDP presidential candidate, President Buhari’s plan to clinch a second term in office will be in jeopardy, especially as they are afraid, for obvious reasons that the president has become unpopular and won’t be reelected at the poll.
”The first step in this desperate plot is to arrest some of our associates using the EFCC with others soon to follow, based on a list that has been drawn up by the cabal.”
