Release the audio conversation as a proof — Atiku Questions Phone Call Between Tinubu, Buhari



Atiku claims victory in final address at tribunal

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential candidate and former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed doubt over a recent report that President Muhammadu Buhari and President-elect Bola Tinubu, both members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), spoke on the phone to wish each other a happy Eid.

ENIGERIA reports that Atiku Abubakar’s spokesperson Daniel Bwala asked for evidence of such a conversation.

In order to commemorate Eid el-Fitr, President Buhari spoke with President-elect Tinubu over the phone on Friday, according to a statement from Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity.

The presidential spokesman said, “Both leaders thanked God Almighty for seeing this day and prayed for the stability and the wellbeing of the nation.

“President Buhari expressed his readiness to welcome Asiwaju Tinubu to the State House as President on May 29th.”

However, in a tweet on Saturday, Bwala questioned the legitimacy of the phone call.


He tweeted: “Release the audio conversation as a proof. Anyway our constitution does not envision you welcoming him to the state house because after the swearing in at eagle square, the motorcade would take you to the airport, whilst he will now resume at his new house.”
