APC Calls For Investigation Into Atiku, PDP Dubai Meeting
The Deputy National Publicity Secretary, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Yekini Nabena, has called for an investigation into the meeting which was held in Dubai by some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), including the Presidential Candidate, Atiku Abubakar.
Mr Nabena in a series of tweet said that “the purpose of the said meeting is both comical and ridiculous as they have held several meetings for the same purpose in Nigeria. Clearly, the meetings held in Nigeria did not yield their desired results, hence, a follow-up meeting in Dubai.
“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”.
According to the APC spokesman, the meeting is reported to “plot strategies to oust President Muhammadu Buhari” in next year’s election.
“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 is for other sinister political purposes ahead of the 2019 elections.
“Again, relevant agencies must check suspicious movement of cash both locally and internationally by politically exposed persons under the guise of a “Dubai meeting” or any clandestine meeting”.
Mr Nabena criticised Atiku’s assurance to reduce fuel price from N145 per litre to N90/ per litre.
“The fact as we speak is that at a petrol cost under-recovery fluctuating between N60-N70 per litre propelled by vaunting crude oil price of around $81 per barrel”.
