With the most recent chorus of the PDP linking some phantom shares in Etisalat and Keystone financial institution to the ‘household’ of the President, we’ve it on good authority that the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic and his party are set to launch a sequence of untamed, unsubstantiated allegations in opposition to the President and Vice President together with their family and friends members, within the subsequent few weeks.

With the most recent revelation that the mentioned shares are relatively linked to kinfolk of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, it has grew to become a case of the thief calling the farm proprietor the thief, because the Yorubas would say in a well-liked proverb. These impending wild allegations would naturally border on corrupt practices with none evidential foundation.
The aim is to try to dent the best forte of the President and Vice President going into 2019 elections, which is their private integrity. The most recent techniques of the primary opposition is premised on the next grounds:
a) Since their stuttering campaigns began, they’ve felt the heartbeat of Nigerians and realized Nigerians haven’t forgotten their misdeeds of 16 years while in workplace.
b) They’ve determined to run a marketing campaign of “we-are-all-corrupt” relatively than defend their sordid data of cruel looting of the general public purse, which has introduced us to the place we’re at this time.
c) The intention is to push Nigerians to equate an Alhaji Atiku Abubakar with President Muhammadu Buhari on issues of corruption. They need to deceive Nigerians to suppose that the 2019 elections is known as a alternative between two “corrupt” individuals
d) By repeating the lies 1,000,000 occasions, they intention to get Nigerians to start to provide some severe thought to the lies. That is how the “Jubrin from Sudan” story began, earlier than even some well-exposed and educated Nigerians had been practically transformed on that difficulty.
e) Their newest determined diversionary techniques is as a result of even probably the most uneducated Nigerian has now understood that each one the problems upon which the primary opposition is campaigning are self-indicting points, particularly on the Economic system and Safety.
The muse for the challenges in these sectors, are firmly rooted of their 16 years of disastrous governance. President Buhari has simply began a re-building course of.

Nigerians ought to subsequently brace up for six weeks of despicable lies from the pit of hell in opposition to the President and Vice President, to attempt to counsel to Nigerians that the President and his deputy are a part of the league of looters to which they belong.
However Nigerians ought to perceive that the alternatives earlier than them have by no means been this clear: It’s between a fugitive from the legislation in America and a President who has by no means been accused of stealing something in his whole life and is revered each regionally and internationally; It’s between a person who claims he needs to ‘get Nigeria working once more’ but has at all times refused to pay his taxes AS AT WHEN DUE and a person who has NEVER cheated the Nigerian State. Alhaji Atiku Abubakar has since stored an ominous silence over this damaging allegation of irresponsible and deliberate tax evasion that’s now earlier than a court docket of legislation.
Whereas the President and Vice President are ready and prepared to reply any real inquiry raised about their stewardship, Nigerians ought to at all times ask the crucial questions as to “the place”, “when”, “how”, names, dates, addresses, and many others in respect of any allegation raised by the opposition earlier than giving any credence to it.
It’s because because the Atiku Marketing campaign continues to collapse each day, we might hear such determined allegation from them that President Buhari has bought the buildings in Aso Rock to the Israelis or People!!!
Nigerians ought to inform Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that it’s too late within the day to impugn the integrity of Mr. President, or to “bundle” himself earlier than Nigerians as a trustworthy man. Nigerians solely have to learn the e-book by his former boss, ex President, Olusegun Obasanjo titled, “MY WATCH”.
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar should bear the cross and tar of corruption alone (as pronounced by the Congress in America and his former boss). He shouldn’t drag President Muhammadu Buhari into that room of ethical debauchery with him.
