Atiku Abubakar

Presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has questions to answer when he returns from the U.S, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has said.

According to The Guardian, Mohammed said this while briefing State House correspondents on Friday.

The decision to question Atiku is “following fresh evidence that he benefitted from slush funds that led to the collapse of Bank PHB,” the minister said

“The federal government has paper trail which shows that he benefitted from N156 million. It started from an internal memo dated 13 January 2009 asking that a draft in favour of Atiku Abubakar of N156 million should be raised,” he said.

Mohammed added that the government has proof of the account mandate, cheque and account statement showing Atiku as the signatory to the account that received the money.

“We want him to stay in the US for as long as he wants but he has to explain to Nigerians when he returns,” he added.

    Whoever within the Federal government of Nigeria that is now calling for the investigation. Of Mr. Atiku Abubakar over an allegation of slush funds, has lost his or her mind. Because the investigation is wrongly timed. The Presidentialelection is arround the corner. Remember, you all signed the peace agreement where you all agreed not to cause any problems before, during the election.. It looks like the Federal government of Nigeria is trying to harass and intimidate Mr. Atiku Abubakar with government marchenenery. This is wrong and must be stopped immediately. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

    They forgot when he was in APC, but remembered once he crossed over to PDP. Selective Amnesia!

    Federal Government should leave Atiku alone. Mr President did not present secondary schools certificate in 2015 but Jonathan did not disqualify him
