Furious Obasanjo Blast APC Over Atiku Allegations (See How It Started)

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has dismissed an allegation by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), that he had been mounting pressure on American authorities, to expunge an alleged corruption case against Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

APC said Atiku is wanted in the United States for fraud, claiming Obasanjo was scheming to have the alleged charges dropped, in order to clear the path for Atiku’s entry into that country.

The former Vice-President has not been able to enter the US since at least 2007, when he completed his two-term as vice-president, serving under Obasanjo the entire eight years.

APC stated that Obasanjo’s purported intervention betrayed his “legendary hypocrisy and self-serving interest in national affairs.”

However, in a chat with Premium Times, Kehinde Akinyemi the spokesman to the ex president, said: “Baba cannot be responding to frivolous allegations by a vicious political party.

“Let them bring any shred of evidence to back their false claim.”

“It is unfortunate that they are trying to distract the attention of Nigerians in the lead up to a general election rather than focus on campaigning on serious issues to lift the country out of its current state.”
