Former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has said there is no iota of truth in the speculation that he is preparing one of his sons to become the Governor of Adamawa State.
Atiku flayed his political opponents in Adamawa State for trying at all cost to tarnish his image.
According to him, “All my children are content to pursue professional lives in their various callings and I have no business imposing my choices on them. ”
“Such allegation could only have come from idle minds and busybodies looking for cheap publicity or finding someone to blame for their political problems.”
Atiku, who was a presidential aspirant on the platform of the ACN in the 2007 general elections, said he is not the kind of father who will force his career on his children, adding that his responsibility is to give them good education to set them up in life.
“I wish to advise those spreading such mischievous falsehood to desist and find something more useful to do with their time than planting the seeds of discord and acrimony among the peace-loving people of Adamawa State,” he said.
