2019: Atiku Clears The Air On Speculations
Atiku, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), dismissed insinuations that he and the current leadership of the National Assembly maybe working underground to actualise their 2019 presidential ambition.
According to Thisday, the Turakin Adamawa, instead, wants the party members to embrace one another in the wake of the issues surrounding the emergence of Bukola Saraki and Yakub Dogara as the senate president and house of representatives speaker respectively.
A statement released by his media office on Sunday, signed by Mazi Paul Ibe, revealed that the former vice president urged all party men to accept what happened in the National Assembly as mere interplay of politics in the interest of the system and the party.

Atiku further exonerated himself from the purported hijack of the party and the National Assembly towards 2019 as figment of the imagination of those promoting it, and asked Nigerians to ignore such insinuation.
The former presidential aspirant also pledged his loyalty to president Muhammadu Buhari, stating that it is dangerous for any individual or group within the APC to constitute themselves into an opposition before the constitution of the present government.
