Atiku breathes fire, issues a strong warning to Tinubu amid a perceived feud with Buhari
Atiku Abubakar of the PDP warned Bola Tinubu of the APC to desist from involving him in his crisis with President Buhari.
The warning was issued by the former vice president through the Atiku/Okowa campaign organization.
The organization’s spokesman said Tinubu’s politics have always been about “himself and the clique” as he never cared about Nigerians or the success of the government he claimed to have brought to power.
