Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has denied a report in an online news medium that he vowed to send President Muhammadu Buhari to prison to join detained former National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd) should he be elected president in 2019.

Atiku is expected to be Buhari’s main challenger in the 2019 presidential election.

According to the report, Atiku had lashed the president over his decision to order the withdrawal of $496 million from the Excess Crude Account to fund the purchase of 12 Super Tucano aircraft from the United States to aid military operations in Nigeria without recourse to the National Assembly.

The Waziri Adamawa alleged tweeted:  “I think @MBuhari should go and join Dasuki at Kuje prison because both have committed the same crime. …#ilegal withdrawal. So court should take note.”

But taking to his verified Twitter handle @atiku on Friday evening, Atiku denied making the statement.

He said, “These aren’t my words and never emanated from my official handle. Its contrived and targeted to create mischief.”
