Atiku released a statement on the issue signed by his media aide on Friday following reports that he endorsed Malam Nuhu Ribadu of the PDP for Adamawa gubernatorial election.
The statement reads:
“I did not and will never call for support for any candidate of the PDP. The photograph that is being circulated is the Photoshop copy of my photograph that called for votes for the Osun State governor in the 2014 gubernatorial election in that state.
“My commitment to support and canvass for votes for the APC, not only in Adamawa State, but in all strata of elections across the country is a virtue that I will urge all Nigerians to follow,”
Atiku also said that the imperative of voting for the APC in the next line of elections in the country on April 11 is a virtue that he’s firmly committed to and to which he urged all Nigerians to give unwavering support.
“The purported photograph of me canvassing for votes for the PDP in the Adamawa governorship election is a fraud and done out of outright malice.”– Atiku added.
