It seems American political analyst, Judd Legum who wrote about how President Donald Trump’s corrupt administration paved way for PDP Presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar into the United States of America, despite being banned, lied as the contract letter he shared was signed before Atiku Abubakar became PDP’s Presidential candidate.
However in a twist of event, it seems he actually lied about Atiku Abubakar inking a $1.1 million lobbying contract with a man named Brian Ballard. According to him, Ballard is one of the most connected lobbyists in the Trump orbit. He ran Trump’s Florida operation and before that was a lobbyist for the Trump org in Florida. Since Trump was elected he’s signed up a slew of A-list clients like Amazon and Uber.
However reacting to the claims, Twitter user @Dondekojo who reacted to the claims wrote;
@osita_chidoka signed a contract for the PDP a month before Atiku emerged as the candidate, liars like @MrAyeDee are making it into a lobbying deal for Atiku. #FakeNews

@atiku became the candidate of the party on October 7, 2018. This agreement was signed by @osita_chidoka on September 9, 2018 – a full 16 days before. This right here disproves your entire thread for what it is – #FakeNews. But it’s okay. Earn your keep from our treasury
