Atiku was Nigeria’s Vice-President between 1999 and 2007

The presidency has lambasted Bishop Wale Olagunju for saying that the candidate of the PDP, Atiku Abubakar, will defeat President Muhammadu Buhari in the 2019 elections.

Prophet Olagunju was quoted to have said: “Let me congratulate President Muhammadu Buhari for winning the ticket of his party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), and let me also make it clear to him that he will lose to Atiku Abubakar.”

Reacting in a post on Twitter, the president’s social media aide, Lauretta Onochie, said the clergyman was in bed with thieves and kingpins of corruption.

She wrote: “Prophet Wale Olagunju: ‘Atiku Will Defeat Buhari 2019, Osinbajo Has Failed God.’

“Me: You’re a fake Christian. You’re in bed with thieves and kingpins of corruption

“You’re not in talking terms with God. God is happy with Prof. Osinbajo. He is fighting corruption and caring for the needy.”
