I’m not sick – Atiku opens up on ‘limping’ video

By Seun Opejobi

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar has reacted to a viral social media video suggesting he is sick.

Atiku maintained that he is in good health.

A video had surfaced online of Atiku limping during his return to Nigeria ahead of the Osun State governorship election.

However, Atiku’s Media Aide, Paul Ibe, dismissed claims, stressing that mischief makers were behind the reports.

A statement by Ibe reads partly: “Our attention has been drawn to a report and a video in a section of the media purporting to be of an “ailing” Atiku Abubakar being helped strapped to his car seatbelt by an aide.”

“Nothing can be further from the truth. For the records, the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is in robust good health.”

“We would not ordinarily have responded to this mischief, but for the impression that it will create in the minds of Nigerians, which is exactly the objective of the purveyors of this fake news.

“We wish to state that Atiku is not averse to scrutiny because of the consequential nature of the 2023 elections. However, it is our position that such scrutiny must not be predicated on a slash and burn rogue journalism as is the case with this contrived report.”
