Lauretta Onochie, a special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media has declared that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar should be glad he’s walking free and not languishing in jail.
Although she didn’t mention what the inscriptions on Atiku’s photo were, she noted that the former vice president should counsel himself to avoid being tried for treason.
Onochie further said that Atiku should face his court case to challenge Buhari’s victory rather than stirring up mischief.
She wrote on Twitter on Tuesday:
“I just returned to Abuja and saw Atiku’s photos with some weird inscriptions.
“For one who is lucky to be walking free, whatever he is planning, he shouldn’t forget that we have a President in place.
“Nigerians will insist that treason be treated as treason. He should counsel himself.
“When you lose an election, you either congratulate the victor or you challenge the election results in court.
“After foot-dragging, Atiku has now managed to go to court. It’s in the best interest of the nation that he continues in that legal path instead of stirring mischief.”
