2023 Presidency: APC Chieftain, Danladi Bako Speaks On Allegations Leveled Against Tinubu And Atiku
Amid the ongoing public uproar that has greeted the allegations of graft leveled against the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, prominent chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Alhaji Danladi Bako has come out to share his thoughts on the various insinuations of impropriety that have been targeted at the three frontline candidates in the race for the presidency.
While speaking on the need for Nigeria’s next president to be a person of character and integrity during an interview on ARISE TV’s ‘News Night’ a few hours ago, Bako, who is the Director of Strategic Communications in the APC Presidential Campaign Council, pointed out that reports on the allegations of financial misappropriation concerning Tinubu have been sent to the EFCC and ICPC for investigations, adding that the agencies will do their jobs in getting to the root of the matter.
On the accusations leveled against Atiku Abubakar, the APC chieftain stated that he was more worried by how a mole was allowed to come so close to the PDP candidate without being discovered. He went on to opine that such a situation calls Atiku’s sense of judgment concerning the people around into question.
“Let me put it like this, that matter (concerning Tinubu) has been taken to the agencies that are concerned, that is, the ICPC, EFCC, and the Code of Conduct Bureau, and I want to believe that they will do what they need to do to find out if there is any iota of truth. They will sift through the shaft and get through. But for that of the presidential candidate of the PDP, the issues that border on character have to do with how you can trust somebody that becomes a mole or whistleblower coming close to you. It borders on whether you have the ability of judgment of the kind of people around you. This speaks to the quality of mentality of being able to understand the kind of people that are around you. But for us, a whistleblower has gone to town, and of cause, it has now cast a shadow of a doubt.
Of cause, you also know that there is a gentleman who is the presidential candidate of another party, Pandora papers mentioned a lot about him, and Malaysia mentioned a lot about drug cases too. He is one of the three main candidates. But what I am saying is that if we go that way, murk raking won’t take us anywhere. We won’t go far. These are distractions to a large extent. I think we should focus on the message.”
