“Atiku Abubakar as an individual, you will read his biography, you will read his autobiography, you will read his history and if you read it 40 or 30 years ago it is still talking about the same person.
“You can identify his classmates, you can read about the schools he attended, there no controversy about where he is from, Jada, there is no controversy about Atiku Abubakar but everything about Bola Ahmed Tinubu is controversial, mysteriously controversial.”
