Atiku breathes fire, issues strong warning to Tinubu amid perceived dispute with Buhari
Atiku Abubakar of the PDP warned Bola Tinubu of the APC to desist from roping him into his crisis with President Buhari.
The warning was issued by the former vice president through the Atiku/Okowa campaign organisation.
The spokesperson of the organisation said Tinubu's politics has always been about "self and the cabal" as he never cared for Nigerians or the success of the government he claimed to have brought to power.
