Atiku-Tinubu
Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, says he has not made any comment on the ongoing trial of Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his Deputy, Ike Ekweremadu by office of the Attorney General of the Federation.

A statement issued in Abuja on Monday by his Media Adviser, Mazi Paul Ibe, noted that the last time Atiku made any comment on National Assembly matters was in July 2015 during the leadership crisis in the legislature.

It said Atiku was surprised that his 2015 comment, wherein he called for an amicable resolution of crisis of confidence that arose from the election of principal officers, was credited to him in the current battle between the Senate and the Attorney General of the Federation.

That statement was titled “It is time to shift ground and move to the centre”.

FELLOW PRESS recalls that spokesman of the Red Chamber, Senator Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, at the weekend called “on all parties, Mr. Malami, the Attorney General inclusive, to heed the wise, timely and apt advice of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar that “it is time to move”.

“Truly, Nigeria needs our collective energy to address the various challenges – notably increasing poverty, hunger, youth unemployment, general insecurity and kidnapping, among others – which are time bombs that we can only ignore at our own collective peril”.

Reacting, Atiku said it was not within his power to intervene in support of either side when his intervention was not sought.

His media adviser added that “the former Vice President is not in support of any row between the executive branch and the legislature, which causes needless distractions at the expense of governance issues demanding attention.

“His July 2, 2015 statement over internal party tension should not be twisted, reworked and attributed to him in order to make it look like he made a recent comment on the NASS vs AG crisis of confidence”.

The statement urged the media to treat people fairly by not attributing to them statements they didn’t make; dredging up old statements on different issues and make them appear like their reactions to current issues that have no bearing on each other.
