The Presidential candidate of PDP and Vice President of Nigeria, 1999-2007, Atiku vowed never will he mortgage the Peoples’ mandate and promised to challenge it.
Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, assures Nigerians that under no circumstance will he mortgage the mandate of Nigerians as freely expressed on the 23rd of February, 2019.
In a press statement signed, by the Presidential candidate of PDP and Vice President of Nigeria, 1999-2007,
Atiku Abubakar’s Media Adviser, Paul Ibe, noting that This assurance comes against the backdrop of the invasion,
and arrest of Alhaji Babalele Abdullahi, son in-law and finance director of his group of companies in Abuja on Saturday, 2 March, 2019.
In a desperate move to have Atiku Abubakar concede and congratulate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari,
officials of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) at about 8.30am today (Saturday) invaded the Maitama residence of Babalele.
They were however not given access into the house until his lawyers arrived.
They then proceeded to his office at Oakland Centre in Maitama and found nothing incriminating there.
However, they took away some documents of landed property.
Not done, the EFCC officials stormed his Wuse residence where they again found nothing incriminating after the search.
Afterwards, Babalele was taken away to the EFCC office in Wuse to make a statement alongside Mr. Lawan Ayuba.
As a law abiding citizen,
Atiku Abubakar recognizes the constitutional role of the EFCC and indeed any other agency of the government to carry out investigations,
but will not be cowed by any attempt to blackmail him into mortgaging his mandate.
