SPV saga: APC demands arrest of Atiku

The ruling party, All Progressives Congress, APC, has called on security agencies in the country to arrest Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, over what the party described as #AtikuGate.

Citing a video clip made by one Michael Achimugu said to be a former aide of the PDP standard bearer, Tinubu said Atiku as vice president between 1999 and 2007 colluded with his then boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo to mismanage the “Special Purpose Vehicles” SPVs.

Noting that Atiku does not enjoy immunity simply because he is a presidential candidate, the APC candidate asked the former vice president to apologize and renounce his ambition.

In a statement released today (16th of January), the ruling party (APC) is demanding for immediate arrest and/or invitation, interrogation and possible prosecution of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The statement partly reads,

ENOUGH OF PLAYING THE OSTRICH REGARDING THE “SPECIAL PURPOSE VEHICLE (SPV)” SAGA:

WE STRONGLY DEMAND THE IMMEDIATE ARREST AND/OR INVITATION, INTERROGATION AND POSSIBLE PROSECUTION OF ALHAJI ATIKU ABUBAKAR

Those SPVs were companies Atiku admittedly registered upon assumption of office as Vice-President (with the approval of President Olusegun Obasanjo) using “trusted allies” as shareholders and Directors. The purpose was to divert government contracts to these companies as “consultants” and then paid monies into these companies and used those monies to fund the PDP and their private businesses and family activities. We can all vividly recall that during that tenure, both President Olusegun Obasanjo and Atiku Abubakar built the Bells University..
