The presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu has refuted claim by Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate that they parted ways in 2007 after Tinubu insisted on a Muslim-Muslim ticket.

Recall that Atiku had during an interview revealed that Tinubu has always advocated a Muslim-Muslim presidential ticket.

But Tinubu said reverse was the case as Atiku was the one who asked him to be his running mate in 2007 but that he refused.

The APC presidential candidate alleged that Atiku was a “pathological” liar.

Tunde Rahman, Tinubu’s media aide, in a statement signed on behalf of the APC candidate said: “ Atiku may want to be president. However, all he has shown is that he is a pathological liar.

“Let me say openly that Atiku offered me the vice presidential ticket in 2007. Let me also say that my religion has not changed. When he offered the position to me, I was a Muslim and I believe he was aware of my religious faith at the time.

“Atiku’s calculations and deceit had nothing to do with religion or his sensitivity to it. His conduct has everything to do with what we discovered about his paucity of character and love of intrigue.”
