Paul Ibe, the special Adviser on Media to former Vice President and the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has dismissed reports on the social media that his principal has traveled to the United States of America.
Ibe told political correspondents on Thursday afternoon that the reports were false.According to him, Atiku has not left the shores of the country and could not have landed in the US as being peddled on social media.
“You know what the social media can do. You know the social media for what they are. It is not true. His Excellency hasn’t gone anywhere,” he said.
The clarification came following an online tweet from the Publisher of Ovation magazine, Mr. Dele Momodu, who shared the web link of the online report, saying “BREAKING: Atiku lands in US.”
