Dino Melaye, the spokesperson for the presidential campaign of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 election, has said that reports that his principal sold privatised enterprises are malicious.
POLITICS NIGERIA reports that some speculations are circulating that Atiku sold off some national assets which were privatised to his cronies while he was Vice-President of Nigeria between 1999 and 2007.
The critics had challenged Atiku to account for the privatisation exercise under his watch “which saw national assets sold off to friends and cronies with no benefit to the country”.
But in a YouTube video shared on his known Twitter handle on Tuesday, Melaye described those peddling the rumours as “people of capricious manifestation”.
“The statistics given by one myopic character in a video that is going viral, are manufactured from Aba market. They are not factual at all,” Melaye said.
