2019: Buhari's Team Asks Atiku To Quit Presidential Race For Lying
The President Muhammadu Buhari Campaign Organisation says the presidential candidate Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, is a liar.
They said 'Atiku does not have the moral ground to contest for the highest office in the country, and should withdraw from the election.
The organisation based their call on the allegation by the Atiku Campaign Organisation that members of the family of the President owned substantial shares in Etisalat and Keystone Bank.
In a statement on Wednesday, spokesman for the PMBCO, Festus Keyamo, said the denial by Etisalat and Keystone Bank’s investors that the family members of Buhari had nothing to do with both companies was another indication of the fast-collapsing campaign of Atiku and that of the PDP.
The statement said: “The result of the fact-check, which was published in some news outlets, clearly shows the depth of desperation, deceit and debauchery to which the Atiku campaign has sunk.
“They have no moral compass, no scruples, no direction in their present attempt to smear just everyone in sight in order to run a campaign of ‘we-are-all-corrupt.
“Rather than respect the feelings of Nigerians by offering clear-cut responses to straightforward allegations of tax-evasion, grand corruption in and out of office, impending sealed indictment waiting for him in the US, Atiku Abubakar has decided to drag the world down with him as he goes down in a blaze of infamy.
"He has decided to go wild with wild, unsubstantiated allegations against the President and Vice-President, throwing caution to the wind in the process.
“This is the classic hallmark of a sinking campaign boat, clutching at straws, as Nigerians have woken up to the realisation that these are deceitful people who have nothing to offer".
