Former Vice-President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has assured Nigerians that he can fight corrupt practices more than anyone has done if given the utmost opportunity to serve.
He made this revelation recently: “I will fight corruption like never before if I am given the opportunity to preside over the affairs of the country.”
“I am well equipped to fight corruption because of my vast experiences both in the public and private sectors and my ability to build a team capable of accomplishing the task. I will shock everyone because I believe that I will fight corruption like never before.”
“It is sickening to continue to regurgitate allegations of corruption against me by people who have failed to come forward with a single shred of evidence of my misconduct while in office.”
“People who lacked initiative, personal resourcefulness and ideas about wealth creation, “always assume that a man cannot build himself without stealing. People who are bereft of ideas about entrepreneurial spirit always think that everyone else is a thief just like them.”
“Despite previous desperate efforts to link me with corruption, the William Jefferson trial in the United States ended in 2009 without indicting me or linking me to corrupt activities.”
“I did not become the Vice-President in 1999 as a pauper because I had been a successful investor throughout my retirement life. If Atiku is a thief merely because of his resourcefulness and successful investments, my political enemies should tell Nigerians the sources of their own stupendous wealth.”
