President Muhammadu Buhari’s aide on Social media, Lauretta Onochie says she has no time to respond to a depressed “Atiku”
Onochie said this on Monday while reacting to the demand for a public apology by the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Atiku Abubakar.
“This is in no way responding to the depressed Alhaji Atiku Abubakar whose aides are constantly cooking up disgrace for him, for the sake of their stomachs, instead of giving him his pills,” Onochie said via a Facebook post on her page on Monday.
Abubakar had demanded a public apology and N500m for defamation after Onochie had alleged that the former Vice President of Nigeria was on the watchlist of the United Arab Emirate and was recently in the Middle East to shop for terrorists.
The PDP presidential candidate in a letter via his counsel, Mike Ozekhome, SAN, had threatened a 2 billion Naira suit against Onochie if she fails to apologise publicly.
However, according to the presidential aide, she will not be distracted her from her job by Atiku’s demands.
She said: “We are entering into the most crucial time at the Election Tribunal where the mandate freely given to our beloved President by Nigerians, is being challenged and I’m their nightmare.”
“In their thinking, (are saying) Let’s distract Lauretta Onochie. We can’t afford to have her focused on her job.
“I can’t be distracted,” she said
