Lauretta Onochie, an aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, has told the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last election, Atiku Abubakar, to thank God he is not in jail.
Concise News understands that Atiku lost the presidential race to Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and has rejected the result and headed to court.
In a tweet on Tuesday, however, Onochie berated Atiku for allegedly having posters in Abuja allegedly meant to cause tension in the country.
She urged the former vice president to go the lawful route by challenging Buhari in court or risk being charged for treason.
“I just returned to Abuja and saw Atiku’s photos with some weird inscriptions,” she tweeted.
“For one who is lucky to be walking free, whatever he is planning, he shouldn’t forget that we have a President in place.
“Nigerians will insist that treason be treated as treason. He should counsel himself.
“When you lose an election, you either congratulate the victor or you challenge the election results in court.
“After foot-dragging, Atiku has now managed to go to court. It’s in the best interest of the nation that he continues in that legal path instead of stirring mischief.”
