Atiku Releases List Of 30 ‘Corrupt People’ Working With President Buhari



Atiku Accuses Buhari Of Protecting Corrupt Individuals

The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed 30 ‘corrupt persons’ working with President Muhammadu Buhari.

The list, released through his Special Assistant on Public Communications, Phrank Shaibu, on Sunday, included former Lagos State governor and National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed.

The former Vice President pointed out that while most of those listed are members of the party, others ran to the party to escape prosecution by anti-graft agencies.

Others listed are Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to President Muhammadu Buhari; Adams Oshiomhole, former Governor of Edo State and National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Also included are Abdullahi Adamu, a serving senator and former Governor of Nasarawa State; Babachir Lawal, former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF); Folarin Coker, Lagos socialite and Director General of the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC).

The list also includes Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai, the Chief of Army Staff; Senator Hadi Sirika, the Minister of Aviation; Aisha Buhari, wife of the president; Adedayo Thomas, the Executive Director, National Film and Video Censors Board; Adamu Muazu, former Governor of Bauchi State; Iyiola Omisore, former Osun State Deputy Governor; Abdulrasheed Maina, former Pensions Board boss; Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, former Minister of State for Defence, and Orji Uzor Kalu, former Governor of Abia State.

It also listed Governor Isa Yuguda of Bauchi State; Senator Godswill Akpabio; Vice President Yemi Osibanjo; Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano State; Alhaji Seminu Turaki, a two-term former Governor of Jigawa State; Alhaji Junaid Abdullahi, in-law to President Buhari, who is the Executive Secretary, Border Communities Development Agency (BDCA); Alhaji Aliyu Wammako, a former governor, who is currently in charge of Buhari’s campaign in Sokoto State; Hope Uzodinma, the APC governorship candidate in Imo State; Rotimi Amaechi, current Minister of Transportation and Director-General of the Buhari Campaign Organisation, and Alhaji Abdul’aziz Yari, Governor of Zamfara State.

Others are Maikanti Baru, the Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), and Ayodele Oke, the suspended Director-General of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA).

Naija News, however, recalls that the APC on numerous occasions have always maintained that any corrupt politician that joins the party would still not escape prosecution by anti-graft agencies and would be made to face the law as appropriate.
