HOW Atiku Plans To Mortgage NNPC To Raise Campaign Funds, APC Alleges
By Dada Michaels, ONNLIVE
THE ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC, has alleged that the opposition People Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, has perfected plans to mortgage key national assets to foreign interests to raise funds for his 2019 campaign.
APC’s Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena, made this allegation recently even as he knocked Atiku over his inability to visit the United States of America because of a corruption indictment. Nabena said the country could not afford to have a “fugitive occupying the highest office in the country.”
“This disturbing development must be checked by relevant agencies, particularly the recently established Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), the country’s arm of the global Financial Intelligence Units (FIUs) mandated to collect information on suspicious or unusual financial activity suspected of being money laundering and then share such information with relevant anti-crime or regulatory agencies.
“Backed by their discredited cyber-thugs, the PDP in its desperate bid to remain in public reckoning continues to expose itself as a joke before Nigerians. The PDP should know by now that elections are not won through falsehood on the internet, but by valid votes of the electorate who are aware of who ruined the country and who is clearing the rot.”
According to Nabena, it is clear that the country has no credible opposition political party, “but a gang of selfish and mercantile politicians that will do anything to return to elective office.”
