Drug allegation: Atiku reveals “burden” on Tinubu

Agency reports,

The spokesperson of the Atiku Abubakar/Ifeanyi Okowa Presidential Campaign Organisation, Kola Ologbondiyan, has asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, to come clean about his complicity in the alleged illicit drug-related forfeiture of $460,000 to authorities in the United States (US) “instead of trying to divert attention”.

Track News reports that Ologbondiyan said that claims by the APC Presidential campaign that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign and its Labour Party counterpart were behind a fake INEC press release indicting Tinubu, were part of a diversionary tactic by the APC.

“We demand that Tinubu should come out boldly and defend his reported link to the whopping sum of $460,000 forfeited to the United States rather than hiding behind a finger and sending his media aides to attack other Nigerians,” Vanguard quotes Ologbondiyan as saying.

“Our campaign insists that the burden before Asiwaju Tinubu is to cleanse himself of being linked to illicit funds by a court in the United States rather than searching for scapegoats and pointing index finger on others whereas the remaining are pointing to his direction.

“Is it not absurd that rather than proving his innocence by personally telling Nigerians the truth about the forfeiture judgment, Asiwaju Tinubu is allowing his aides, who were not principal witnesses in the crime, to issue threats and vituperations on Nigerians?

“This accounts for why the campaign is singing discordant tunes on taxation while Asiwaju Tinubu himself is labouring to dismiss the case as ‘a rumour.’ This is very laughable!”
