A fake video showing former Vice President Atiku Abubakar making a declaration for the 2019 presidential election has k
hit the social media.
One of his aides pointed out Thursday night that the video is a parody of Atiku 2011 declaration downloaded from his official website and tweaked to serve the purpose of shadowy elements.
He added that those behind the video were known but would not mention names.

Atiku was conspicuously absent at the National Caucus and National Executive Committee (NEC) meetings held this week in Abuja, leaving many speculating that he was out of Favour with the party top guns.
