Media adviser to the presidential candidate of the PDP, Paul Ibe, has aimed a dig at the APC claiming the party and its presidential candidate, has resorted to incoherent and mischievous propaganda tactics, after it has become clear that the APC will implode at the polls come February, 2023.

Ibe said, a fictitiously concocted and sponsored story published by a publication which he referred to as a ‘newsletter’ for both APC and its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, claiming there is a feud between Atiku and the Adamawa state governor, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, was a total fabrication and the figment of the writers imagination.

Paul Ibe made this known in a press statement made available to Newsmen, Monday.

Paul Ibe said, “We have read with bemusement a certain story published in the Saturday, 4 February edition of The Nation newspapers captioned: Atiku, Fintiri in silent war.

“Without so much ado, it is necessary that we put it on record that every aspect of the so-called story in all material particular is a figment of the writer’s imagination.”

Ibe emphasised that, “It is not surprising that The Nation newspaper, which is basically a newsletter for the APC and its presidential candidate, will throw all ethics of journalism to the wind in coming up with such whimsical fabrication.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the relationship between the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and his home governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Fintiri is cordial as ever.

“It is also not surprising that the APC, in reading the handwriting of their impending defeat on the wall in bold reliefs, have resorted to sponsoring propaganda, the only thing they are good at doing, to blackmail and tell outright lies about the presidential campaign of the PDP and its presidential candidate.

“We also wish to tell the publishers of The Nation and their errand-boy reporters, that their scheme of deceit aimed at causing a wedge between Atiku Abubakar and Ahmadu Fintiri will fall flat on their faces when the PDP holds its grand finale presidential campaign rally in Adamawa State.

“Lastly, it will be more profitable for the APC and their newsletter medium to focus more on their floundering presidential campaign than being an interloper and playing the devil’s advocate in the campaign of the PDP.”
