The Presidency has cautioned the runner up of the last Presidential elections and People’s Democratic Party(PDP) candidate, Atiku Abubakar, saying he’s lucky to not be in jail.
Lauretta Onochie, a special assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media made this known in a bid to prevent Atiku from causing ‘mischief’
According to the presidential aide, she saw a photo of Atiku, who lost the presidential election on February 23rd, with some weird inscriptions on it.

Although she didn’t mention what the inscriptions on Atiku’s photo were, she noted that the former vice president should counsel himself to avoid being tried for treason.
Onochie advised Atiku to follow the legal methods to seek redress if he felt that he ought to have won the election and that he should not attempt any other means otherwise he would face the consequences.
She wrote on Twitter on Tuesday:
“I just returned to Abuja and saw Atiku’s photos with some weird inscriptions. 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.”
