APC Calls For Probe Of Atiku’s Trip To Dubai
After spending about three weeks in Dubai, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party and some leaders of the party are back in the country.
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Yekini Nabena, is however suspicious of the trip.
He has called on security agencies to probe the “strategy meeting” held by the PDP leaders in Dubai.
In a statement on Sunday, Nabena said security agencies should probe the “real motive” behind the trip.
“There is more to the meeting that meets the eye. Nigeria has enough meeting/conference rooms, many of which meet international standards. It is therefore clear that the Dubai meeting was for other sinister political purposes ahead of the 2019 general elections.
“Our intelligence, anti-graft and security agencies must be awake to its responsibility of investigating the Dubai meeting. Cash-and-carry politicians must be prevented from moving illicit cash around to induce voters and sponsor election violence and rigging.”
The APC chief described the meeting which was attended by Atiku, his running mate, Peter Obi; Senate President, Bukola Saraki; and the party’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus, as both “comical and ridiculous.”
He claimed that the personalities involved in the said meeting had a series of meetings in a similar fashion in Nigeria but it was obvious that the meetings failed to yield the desired results.
Nabena urged security agencies to check suspicious movements of cash, especially by politically exposed persons.
