The deputy national publicity secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Yekini Nabena, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)’s vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi of double standards.
Nabena, in a statement on Wednesday, January 9, also accused the former Anambra state governor of alleged dirty deals while he was in office. He further challenged Obi to explain how his administration expended his security vote as governor.
The Bayelsa born APC chieftain alleged that the Atiku presidential campaign team and PDP have turned to the drug dealers in South Africa for financial assistance, “because their Dubai agenda has collapsed.”
Nabena said the former governor has been parading himself as free of corrupt acts in his eight years as governor of Anamra state, revealing that available record showed that Obi was collecting over N470 million Naira monthly as security vote (N220 million naira from local government and 250 million naira from the state FAC accounts).
He said: “Several sources have revealed how the PDP and Atiku/Obi cannot longer run big rallies for lack of funding but had to contact some drug dealers in South Africa for help.”
He added that the coming presidential election will be about the integrity of the candidates and their running-mates which he noted, “PDP presidential candidate, Atiku and his running-mate does not have.”
The APC chieftain said it is necessary for Nigerians to seriously beam their searchlight on all the presidential candidates and their running-mates, especially those who claim to have integrity like Peter Obi.
“Obi should explain his relationship with former military administrator, Governor Ibim Princewill and Colonel Earnest Kizito Attah of Cross River state whom he allegedly helped as a conduit to fleece Cross River state government thus contributing to the under development of the state,” he said.
