PRESS RELEASE BY PRESIDENT MUHAMMADU BUHARI CAMPAIGN ORGANISATION:

WHEN THE THIEF IS SHOUTING “THIEF”:
THE CASE OF ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR

 

Just a couple of days up to now, the Presidential Candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, known as out President Muhammadu Buhari over positive allegations of “corrupt practices” which the President allegedly condones in his authorities. Whilst we now have repeatedly addressed each of the circumstances cited by him to point the clear nature of the federal authorities, it is stunning that the Presidential candidate of the precept opposition has refused to problem a personal assertion up till this minute clarifying in particulars his file of crass corruption and abuse of office. He is clearly taking Nigerians for a journey and hopes to distort the ethical revolution in public office that Nigerians clearly have to his private philosophy of abusing public office to promote private pursuits. By his subliminal messages, he wishes Nigerians to simply settle for that turning into wealthy by abusing public office is simply not a nasty consider any case.

With the avalanche of fake and unsubstantiated data launched in the last few days, it is now clear that PDP’s approach inside the run as a lot because the elections is to unfold fake data and make wild allegations with none proof in opposition to the President and the Vice President. This is clearly to divert consideration from the file of crass corruption and abuse of office of their very personal candidate. Nigerians cannot and should not be insulted by the PDP after 16 years of looting of the nation, by now putting forward an individual whose file of corruption they very loads acknowledge, nonetheless would comparatively all of us overlook it.

Some of the indisputable data regarding Alhaji Atiku Abubakar are as follows:
1. The U.S Congress in a report titled, KEEPING FOREIGN CORRUPTION OUT OF THE UNITED STATES: FOUR CASE HISTORIES, featured Alhaji Atiku Abubakar as one in every of many four notorious circumstances of money laundering on this planet!

  1. The Congress report said “Jennifer Douglas Abubakar, a U.S. citizen, is the fourth wife of Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President of Nigeria and a former candidate for the Presidency of Nigeria…… from 2000 to 2008, Ms. Douglas helped her husband bring over $40 million in suspect funds into the United States, including at least $1.7 million in bribe payments from Siemens AG, a German corporation, and over $38 million from little known offshore corporations, primarily LetsGo Ltd. Inc., Guernsey Trust Company Nigeria Ltd., and Sima Holding Ltd”.

  2. Atiku’s co-conspirators, Williams Jefferson and Siemens inside the bribery deal had been convicted and Jefferson went to jail. By working for President of Nigeria, Atiku intends to get some immunity from prosecution. Already he is hoping to amass a visa to go to the US, as a customer of the State division, a concession that the US will grant to a Presidential candidate of Africa’s biggest Nation.

  3. Both the BBC and Voice of America reported that “In a probe ordered by Mr. Obasanjo, (then Nigerian President) the vice-president was accused of diverting $125m from a public development trust fund into his personal businesses.”; Please see 1016 BBC, Profile: Atiku Abubakar, January 25, 2007, http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/africa/ 6292141.stm (Voice of America, “Nigerian Vice President Charged with Corruption,” October 10, 2006, http://
    www1.voanews.com/english/data/a- ).

  4. A Senate subcommittee investigating the PTDF indicted Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, having found that he abused his office by aiding and abetting the diversion of public funds inside the sum of $145 million” as loans to his associates.

How will we as a Nation end up with anyone with this sordid file domestically and internationally? We have heard the lame defence that the U.S Justice Department said it has no pending case in opposition to Atiku Abubakar. That is barely a defence for the ignorant ones. In the United States, there are indictments the Justice Department can affirm to the world. But there could also be one different class of indictments typically often called SEALED INDICTMENTS that the Justice Department cannot affirm to anyone. These indictments are sealed beneath the orders of a Judge. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has a sealed indictment prepared for him inside the U.S. The day he visits the U.S, not as a candidate in an election, he’ll face bills.

There is not any question that the reasons for Atiku’s frequent contests for the Presidency are to steal the sources of Nigeria for self-enrichment and to cease prosecution for his crimes of laundering and receiving bribes. No amount of fake data or ridiculous false allegations in opposition to the President or Vice President which will wash away the well-documented historic previous of theft.

We moreover drawback the PDP to publish a single line inside the sub-committee recommendation of the House of Reps on the NEMA Emergency purchases the place the report accused the Vice President of embezzlement of funds. They each do this inside 24 hours or protect quiet ceaselessly. It is even noteworthy that the House of Representatives have not adopted any such recommendation to make it a report of the House.

We moreover drawback them to point any proof in any means of their allegations in regards to the TraderMoni.

After three days of publicly asserting that they’ve onerous proof that the President’s relations bought shares in Etisalat and Keystone Bank, the PDP has not produced a single piece of paper, a doc of any kind to buttress the grave allegations it made. This is how shameless and callous the Atiku workforce has become, all in a decided bid to get their fingers on most of the people purse.

Lastly, we drawback Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for the umpteen time to provide his tax receipts for 2015, 2016 and 2017. It is stunning {{that a}} man who has not been paying his Personal Income Taxes now says he wishes to “get Nigerians working again” – irrespective of which means. He is barely deceiving himself and by no means the intelligent Nigerians that everyone knows.
Thank you.
