APC: Atiku Not A Threat To President Buhari’s Re-Election

Mr. Daniel Onjeh, an All Progressives Congress (APC) Benue South Senatorial candidate has said that former Vice President Atiku Abubakar is not a threat to President Muhammadu Buhari’s chances of re-election in 2019.

Onjeh, who is the Board Chairman Project Development Institute (PRODA) and a former President National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), stated this on Friday in Abuja, while speaking with newsmen.
He spoke at the APC national secretariat, adding that while President Buhari was an epitome of integrity, transparency, and accountability, Atiku was the contrary.
He noted that Buhari`s exemplary qualities and leadership disposition informed his recent adoption by the African Union as the continent’s Anti-corruption Champion.
He said, on the other hand, Atiku who was also a former Deputy Controller General of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), had been mentioned in tales of corruption, shady and underhand deals.
Atiku is a man whose source of wealth is a mystery hidden in “a Pandora's box of riddles“, Onjeh said.
“Atiku oversaw Obasanjo’s administration’s opaque privatization process and has allegations of several misdemeanors hanging over his head.
“The name Atiku also featured prominently in the criminal investigation of an African-American congressman who was later sentenced to jail,“ Onjeh said.
This, he added was the reason the United States Embassy in Nigeria refused to grant him a visa.
He noted that the Nigerian Government, through its revenue generating Ports Authority (NPA), recently recovered billions in unpaid and underpaid charges from a business entity owned by Atiku.
Onjeh, however, recalled that since coming to public life, Buhari had been above board, adding that his determined and focused fight against corruption had elicited a sustained, vigorous, and well-funded campaign of calumny and media lynching against his person and office.
