PDP, Atiku lacks integrity, can't fight corruption like us - APC

PDP, Atiku lacks integrity, can't fight corruption like us - APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has maintained that the
Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its presidential candidate, Atiku
Abubakar, lack the integrity to win the 2019 presidential election and even if they do, they can't fight corruption like us.

Reacting to the salvo the National Publicity Secretary of the PDP,
Kola Ologbondiyan, fired at APC, which accused senior officials of the
ruling party of “deliberate efforts to impugn on the character”, the APC
argued that Atiku still have corruption indictments to grapple with.

The statement signed by the acting National Publicity Secretary of
the APC, Yekini Nabena read, “There are no lies here. Atiku Abubakar
grapples with several other corruption indictments. This is a fact and
reality he needs to deal with and come clean about.

“The PDP cannot be simplistic and attempt to wish away the issue of
the integrity of candidates seeking elections into positions at all
levels, particularly as 2019 approaches.

“We reiterate our position that the Nigerian electorate must have
that opportunity to choose from candidates that can pass the integrity
and anti-corruption test.

“The character of office holders we elect into public offices is
important as our very progress and development as a country depends on

“When the choice is to be made, the electorate have the option of a
proven and decent presidential candidate who is putting the people first
and on the other hand a racketeer who will readily mortgage the country
commonwealth to personal coffers and cronies.

“A spokesperson for the PDP, Kola Ologbondiyan released a statement
accusing the senior officials of the APC-led administration of
‘deliberate efforts impugn on the character’ of the PDP presidential
candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

“The PDP’s assertion particularly coming from its spokesperson is
ironic and laughable, given the fact that Kola Ologbondiyan as an editor
with one of the national newspapers in fact unearthed the Special
Audit/Forensic Investigation of Petroleum Technology Development Fund
(PTDF) which indicted Atiku Abubakar, then Vice President for the
mismanagement of the Fund.

“The PDP spokesperson in his published report disclosed that from
1999 to 2006, Atiku’s approval for the release of $20 million from the
treasury and subsequent placement in Trans International Bank without
appropriation and approval by the Federal Executive Council (FEC) was
illegal and amounted to abuse of office.”
