Former vice president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar said if, given the opportunity to lead Nigeria, he will fight corruption like no one has ever done.
Atiku said this in Abuja, during a tour of the new ultra-modern Yaliam Press Limited in Jabi area, reported by the Punch News paper.
He criticized those who keep linking him with allegations of corruption, challenging them to come forward with evidence, if they have one.
“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.
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. Despite previous desperate efforts to link me with corruption, the William Jefferson trial in the United States ended in 2009 without indicating me or linking me to corrupt activities. People who are bereft of ideas about entrepreneurial spirit always think that everyone else is a thief just like them.
If I 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”.
He charged the management and members of staff of the company to manifest the values of honesty, hard work and diligence, adding that these values are what brought him to the position he is today.
“I will shock everyone because I believe that I will fight corruption like never before,” he added.
Now the question is, Are Nigerian buying this?
