Buhari vs Atiku: US speaks on ‘attack’ on PDP presidential candidate

The U.S embassy has denied a tweet credited to U.S. Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo, where he allegedly gave antagonistic remark about the People Democratic party (PDP) Presidential Applicant, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The embassy, in its twitter account @USEmbassyAbuja, said such articulation ought to be viewed as fake news.



The tweet, which the government office named fake news reads: "“I personally refused to meet him or have anything to do with him (Atiku).


"I am really surprised that an individual indicted by the United States of America of huge corruption is being considered for Nigerian president…U.S. Secretary of State, Michael R. Pompeo.”
The embassy said such statement in either facebook or received via WhatsApp should be regarded as fake.
“FakeNews Alert! If you have seen such manufactured content on @facebook, or received it via @WhatsApp. Please communicate that it’s fake news,” the embassy stated.
President Muhammadu Buhari of the ruling APC will slug it out with Atiku on Saturday.
