Posted by Thandiubani on Tue 17th Jan, 2023 - tori.ng

The former Minister noted that the former Vice President cannot claim to enjoy any form of immunity under the guise of being a presidential candidate.

 
Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar has been told that he has no business trying to become President of Nigeria.
 
The Director of Special Media Projects/New Media of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Femi Fani-Kayode said this during a press conference.
 
Fani-Kayode was reacting to an allegation by one Michael Achimugu, that PDP presidential candidate used Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs) to siphon funds for himself and his former boss, Olusegun Obasanjo, during his time as Vice President between 1999 and 2007.
 
In a series of tweets via his verified Twitter handle on Tuesday morning, Fani-Kayode stated that the PDP flagbearer is not fit to vie for the Presidency let alone become President.
 
The former Minister noted that the former Vice President cannot claim to enjoy any form of immunity under the guise of being a presidential candidate.
 
Fani-Kayode said the APC campaign council demanded the investigation, arrest, and prosecution of Atiku as a consequence of the shocking revelations of corruption made by Achimugu.
 
According to the former minister, the APC campaign council will not rest on its quest to ensure that Atiku and those around him are fully exposed for their alleged corruption.
 
He wrote: “The Directors of the four Media Directorates of the Tinubu/Shettima PCC together with the Special Advisor to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on Media had a very well attended joint World Press Conference at the Presidential Campaign Headquarters in Abuja yesterday.

“We demanded the investigation, arrest, and prosecution of Atiku Abubakar as a consequence of the shocking revelations of corruption made by his former Special Assistant, Mr. Michael Achimugu, and as a consequence of Atiku’s own confession of “stealth corruption” and the stealing of public funds through SPV’s which was recorded on an audio tape. In our view, Atiku has no business running for the Presidency let alone becoming President.

“The press conference went very well and we shall not stop there in our quest to ensure that Atiku and those around him are fully exposed for what they are.”
