Titi Abubakar, wife of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar, said she married her husband because of his integrity.
Mrs Atiku made the remarks when a group, Women for Atiku, paid her a courtesy visit at her Maitama residence in Abuja.
“I get confused whenever I read the false allegations of corruption being peddled by mischief makers against my husband in the media.
“I ask myself if they are referring to my husband whom I have been married to for 47 years or a different person.
“No one knows my husband like I do and their descriptions of him are totally that of a different person and not that of the man I love and adore because of his uprightness,” she said.
The National Coordinator of Women for Atiku, Mrs Blessing Ebera, thanked Mrs Abubakar for the warm reception accorded her group and pledged that it would continue to mobilise women across every ward to vote for Atiku Abubakar come 2019.
She said that the National leadership and the 36 state coordinators of the group visited to inform her that with the commencement of campaign, the group was set to penetrate every nook and canny of Nigeria to mobilise support towards an Atiku victory in 2019.
Atiku has promised to restructure the country and create jobs if elected president in 2019, but his critics have pointed to allegations of corruption against him in the past, even if he hasn’t been convicted of any wrongdoing.
