Atiku Is Working To Please Foreigners – Oshiomhole



'Well Deserved' - Oshiomhole Reacts To Soludo's Election Victory

Adams Oshiomhole, the All Progressives Congress (APC)‘s National chairman, has alleged that Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s a presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar is working for foreign interests.

He said this at the APC presidential campaign which took place at the Abakaliki township stadium in Ebonyi.

He said Atiku’s motive when he wrote to the United Kingdom, the United States and European Union, was appealing to western sentiment in a bid to Nigeria’s economy.

“The right to defend Nigeria’s sovereignty is not negotiable,” he said.

Oshiomhole said the move by Atiku to reach the international bodies would have lots of negative effects on the country’s economy and make the people poor.

He called on the voters reject Atiku, saying foreign nations cannot impose a leader on Nigerians.

He described the forthcoming election as a war between the elites and the poor, just as he insisted that President Muhammadu Buhari’s policies including TraderMoni are pro-poor.

Buhari thanked Ebonyi people for turning out in large numbers, saying they have demonstrated that they cannot be bought.

He urged the people to vote for him to continue with the “good work” his administration has started.

“What this administration is doing and what it will continue to do, if you vote me back is to make sure we realize the potential of our people and the resources God has given us to make life better for this country, for our future generations,” he said.

He declared that in all the positions he has held in the country, he has never been convicted of corruption.

Buhari was head of state between 1983 and 1985, governor of the north-eastern state between 1975 and 1976, and chairman Petroleum Trust Fund between 1994 and 1995.

“I can assure you that I, as the president today has never been in a position of abusing trust,” he said.

“As a governor of the whole six northeastern states, as minister of petroleum for over three years and as a former head of state. I was arrested, detained, investigated but they never found anything against me.”
