“I Will Fight Corruption Like Never Before” If Elected Nigeria’s President – Atiku Vows
A Former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar has vowed to fight corruption like never before if elected president of the country.
This was contained in a statement issued by his Media Office in Abuja.
Speaking on Monday during a facility tour of the new ultra-modern Yaliam Press Limited in Jabi area of Abuja, the statement quoted the APC chieftain as also challenging those he described as his self-righteous political enemies to either prove his alleged corrupt activities or keep quiet.
The former VP further said those making corruption allegations against him have so far been unable to produce a “single shred of evidence” to back their claims.
The statement quoted him as saying: “I will shock everyone because I believe that I will fight corruption like never before.
“It is sickening to continue to regurgitate allegations of corruption against me by people who have failed to come forward with a single shred of evidence of my misconduct while in office.
“People who are bereft of ideas about entrepreneurial spirit always think that everyone else is a thief just like them.
“Despite previous desperate efforts to link me with corruption, the William Jefferson trial in the United States ended in 2009 without indicting me or linking me to corrupt activities.
“If Atiku is a thief merely because of his resourcefulness and successful investments, my political enemies should tell Nigerians the sources of their own stupendous wealth.”
