Atiku in Jos to Take a ‘Rest’


Former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar is in Jos, Plateau state to relax and take a rest, THISDAY has gathered. Atiku, who reportedly arrived Jos quietly on Friday night, was said to have informed the Governor of the state, Mr. Simon Lalong that he was in his state to take a time out to rest and would therefore not entertain many visitors and would not want to talk with the press.

The Governor however allegedly paid him a call at his private residence at Atiku street, Rayfield, Jos, where they had a brief close-door meeting. Though many believe that there was more to his visit than just to ‘rest’, and that it may not be unconnected with his consultations towards 2019 general elections, his close associates maintained that he was in Jos to rest, and nothing more.
