The Candidates: Atiku Says He Is The Most Investigated Politician In Nigeria




The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, says he is the most investigated politician in Nigeria.

Naija News reports that the PDP Presidential candidate made this comment when he featured on The Candidates, a live television programme on the 2019 elections anchored by Kadaria Ahmed on Wednesday, January 30.

This online news platform recalls that Abubakar, who served as Vice-President to Olusegun Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007, fell out with the president who later accused him of corruption before recently endorsing him.

When asked about what Obasanjo said of him in the past, the PDP Presidential candidate said; “If the referee has changed his mind and says that the applicant is now the best for the job, what is there again to consider?

“Nobody has been investigated by Obasanjo more than myself, if Obasanjo couldn’t find me guilty of any wrongdoing then I don’t think those statements stand.”

Abubakar added that as the “most investigated public official”, his employer was unable to find him wanting.

“I was the most investigated politician or public official and I was not found wanting, then it is up to my employers to believe what has been said or not,” he said.
