This was gathered from his statement made in his media house on Friday.

Atiku Abubakar distanced himself from the video which reported him having a declaration to that regard, stating that he would be contesting for the presidential seat come 2019.

In his words, he said the video in circulation in the media was as a result of “bad job of bad people with bad intentions.”

He further stated that those people were maliciously evil, who in the bid to be mischievous, dug out a video clip which was extracted from his 2011 presidential declaration to create the false impression that he had formally declared for the 2019 presidential election.

He said such propaganda was being deliberately promoted by political opponents in order to create acrimony.

He, therefore, advised those involved in such: “laughable and unintelligent propaganda of lies and intentional mischief to find something useful to do with their time instead of using his name to achieve their malicious political objectives.”

He went further to describe them, stating that they were “ a group of incompetent and bumbling political novices who cannot see the loopholes in their own stories,” the former Vice-President advised the media to be wary of “uncritically lapping up fake news materials from groups that don’t care about their own credibility.”

He continues: “While fake news merchants don’t bother about ethics and their reputation”,

Stating that the Media has the obligation to verify information before spreading, that they have more to lose because they would be discredited for wrong information.

Mr Waziri Adamawa joined his voice with him when he also said that spreading false stories about any individual politician is not within the protected boundaries of free speech, and that the traditional media should take the first step by not helping fake news merchants to promote their agenda.
