Our attention has been drawn to a statement credited to the Presidential Candidate of @OfficialPDPNig, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar disputing the assertion by @MBuhari that the system in Nigeria allows corruption to thrive because the system is slow in tackling corruption. - @fkeyamo
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar further blamed President Muhammadu Buhari for perceived failure in addressing some instances of ‘corrupt practices’ under his watch. - @fkeyamo
Let us remind Alhaji Atiku Abubakar that he is one of the greatest beneficiaries of the failed system in tackling corruption that was in place before President Muhammadu Buhari took over in 2015. - @fkeyamo
We know he is aware of this, hence his latest diatribe against President Muhammadu Buhari amounts to nothing but disgusting grandstanding and an attempt to mock the system. - @fkeyamo
If the system in Nigeria was indeed working, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would not have acquired substantial shares in INTELS in clear conflict of his duties as a Customs Officer whilst in office. Those shares would have belonged to the Nigerian people by now. - @fkeyamo
If the system in Nigeria was indeed working, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would not have run a monopolistic company called INTELS all these years, ripping off the Nigerian people and the Nigerian State before Muhammadu Buhari came and broke that monopoly. - @fkeyamo
If the system was working, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar would have been prosecuted and jailed for various acts of corruption and abuse of office after he left office as Vice President - @fkeyamo
Some of which are

1. For himself and his boss, Pres Obasanjo, granting themselves licenses to build universities whilst in office in clear breach of the Code of Conduct for Public Officers. Those Universities would've been probed, seized & transferred to the Nigeria State by now
2.Laundering slush funds to the United States of America using phony companies, part of which was used to fund his present American University in Adamawa State through which he is also extorting Nigerians through exorbitant fees. - @fkeyamo
It is public knowledge that this indictment is contained in a US Congressional Report that has led to the prosecution and conviction of his accomplices in the US, which are William Jefferson and Siemens. - @fkeyamo
They were convicted under a system that works, whilst Atiku has been walking free in Nigeria and even aspiring to the highest office in the land. It is also public knowledge that Atiku's ban from entering the United States was as a result of these indictments. - @fkeyamo
3. His indictment and recommendation for prosecution by the Report of the EFCC over the PTDF scandal whilst he was Vice President. - @fkeyamo
We have also read with keen interest the case filed against Alhaji Atiku Abubakar by some public spirited Nigerians alleging that he never paid his Personal Income Taxes as at when due, yet he wants to ‘get Nigeria working again’. - @fkeyamo
In this regard, we are also challenging Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to publicly display his Personal Income Tax receipts for the 3 years preceding 2018 to show that he did not just run to FIRS in 2018 to pay his backlog of Personal Income Taxes. - @fkeyamo
For the information of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, President Muhammadu Buhari’s gallant efforts in tackling corruption headlong has led to the conviction of the President’s own party men and ex Governors who served under PDP and for acts they committed whilst in PDP. - @fkeyamo
703 persons and institutions have been convicted by the EFCC under the watch of President Muhammadu Buhari since 2015. The biggest recoveries of stolen public funds in the history of Nigeria is being carried out by President Muhammadu Buhari. - @fkeyamo
These recoveries were made from principally his party men who now wish to lead Nigeria with him. - @fkeyamo
Some of these recoveries/seizures/forfeitures (interim and final) are:

(a)407 Mansions since 2015.
(b)N794bn, over $261m, £1.1m & €8.1m,
(c)259 Automobiles.
(d)A fully functional hospital, St. Solomon Health Care Centre at 24, Adeniyi Jones Str, Ikeja Lagos e.t.c.
There are so many other instances too numerous to mention. These are a world apart from the few instances of the reluctant fight against corruption that @atiku claimed happened under his watch as Vice President - @fkeyamo
During @atiku's time, there was a competition for corruption between himself, his boss and public officers. - @fkeyamo
We also urge the PDP to stop making wild, unsubstantiated allegations of corruption without a modicum of proof. We have no time to respond to any allegation by the PDP without the backing of some kind of document or proof. - @fkeyamo
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar latest adventure in trying to stand shoulder-to-shoulder in matters of integrity with President Muhammadu Buhari is a political suicide mission from which we thought his handlers would have tried to steer him away. - @fkeyamo
But alas! They have decided to test the waters. Locally and internationally President Muhammadu Buhari stands several miles away from Alhaji Atiku Abubakar in matters of integrity.
When the President used all his life in public office building a reputation and a name, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar used all his life in public office to build mansions and acquire personal wealth. - @fkeyamo
Now Judgment Day has come when the credential needed by the Nigerian people for the highest office are not the buildings and wealth but the simple quality of integrity. - @fkeyamo
Alhaji Atiku Abubakar cannot eat his cake and have it.

Thank you. - @fkeyamo
