To the first claim, he said that Atiku was wrong as he recalled instances the former vice president supported Muslim-Muslim Ticket.
To the second claim he revealed how Atiku sought the support of President Tinubu in order for him to be the President of Nigeria in 2015.
“Again in 2014, after he became a political orphan in PDP, former VP Atiku came to find refuge in newly formed APC midwived by President Tinubu and other opposition leaders.
