Alleged corruption: Atiku demands apology from APC

The Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization has demanded an apology from the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign, which is led by Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu, for its unsuccessful attempt to discredit Atiku based on the false testimony of Mike Achimugu, an alleged serial blackmailer.

Kola Ologbondiyan, the Atiku-Okowa Presidential Campaign Organization’s spokesperson, made the request yesterday at a briefing in Abuja.

He stated, “Our Campaign demands that Tinubu should tender an unreserved apology to Atiku Abubakar, he should listen to the voice within, and he should withdraw from the presidential race now that Tinubu’s evil diversionary scheme against Atiku Abubakar has failed and Nigerians have seen that there is no iota of truth in his allegation against Atiku Abubakar.

Bola Tinubu, not Atiku Abubakar, is certain to be arrested and disqualified from the presidential race due to corruption, not Atiku Abubakar.

He described Tinubu as a skilled dodger who was using baseless allegations against Atiku, whose academic, business, and public service records were in the public domain, to distract from his shady past.

Tinubu was asked by the Atiku campaign to tell the truth about allegations that he used “Special Purpose Vehicles,” particularly the Alpha Beta Company, to defraud Lagos State under the guise of tax collection.

Ologbondiyan mentioned: “Those who dig pits for the innocent always fall into them, as the age-old adage states.

“This is the case in Asiwaju Tinubu’s vexatious plans to distract attention from his list of atrocities by attempting to impugn our candidate, Atiku Abubakar,’s impeccable character with an unfounded corruption controversy.

“The real Mr. SPV has been revealed to the entire world today; Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the “emilokan” APC presidential candidate, is the real “artful dodger” of Nigeria and the kingpin of corruption.

“Bola Tinubu, sensing that his numerous corrupt activities, particularly his fleecing of Lagos State with many Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) companies, were about to come to light, rushed to hire a serial blackmailer, as he has always done, to foul the public space with fabricated allegations against Atiku Abubakar,” according to the article.

According to him, Tinubu had not only failed in his mission to harm Atiku Abubakar’s reputation, but he had also shown himself to be the real Mr. SPV.

In addition, the PDP PCC Spokesperson stated: “Since 2002, Nigerians are aware of Tinubu’s desperate efforts to conceal his alleged use of Alpha Beta Consulting Limited and Alpha Beta LPP, which he reportedly owned through a proxy, to steal N100 billion in tax funds from Lagos State.

“The manner in which Alpha Beta, which held the exclusive rights to collect taxes in Lagos State for more than 20 years in exchange for a commission under extremely shady arrangements through which it reportedly siphoned billions of naira belonging to Lagos State, is now in the public domain.

“The public is aware that a petition has been filed with an anti-corruption agency alleging that Tinubu’s alleged SPV company used another business with the same address as Tinubu’s office on Idowu Taylor Street in Lagos to launder funds from the Lagos State.

According to documents obtained by one of the anti-corruption agencies, Tinubu’s SPV allegedly paid several companies more than N20 billion (or $46.5 million) in various currencies, including N1 billion (or $2.3 million) to a company that is widely believed to belong to Tinubu.

“Bola Tinubu ought to be honest with himself and respond to these grave allegations of money laundering against him.

“He ought to explain to Nigerians how billions of naira meant for the welfare of the people and belonging to Lagos State reportedly found their way into Soft Alliance and ended up in bits and pieces in foreign currencies into domiciliary accounts he allegedly owns in commercial banks,” according to reports.
