POLITICS NIGERIA reports that the ruling party made known its demand at a world press conference by the joint media Directorates of the Bola Tinubu/Kashim Shettima of its Presidential Campaign Council (PCC).

It said the PDP candidate has been playing the ostrich regarding the “Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)” saga.

The APC’s call for Atiku’s arrest is coming after one Michael Achimugu, who claimed he was a former aide of Atiku, released a video where he gave details of how Atiku allegedly used phony companies called ‘SPVs’ to receive bribes and divert public funds when he was vice president of Nigeria under Obasanjo.

In the video, which went viral on social media, Achimugu warned Nigerians against voting Atiku as president on the grounds of his alleged corrupt tendencies.

The text of APC’s press briefing reads: “For about a week now, Nigerians have been in deep shock over the grave revelations by a whistle-blower, Mr. Michael Achimugu, who has provided the nation with iron-cast evidence of letters of appointment by Alhaji Atiku Abubakar emails, documents, audio clips, sworn affidavit and direct oral evidence as to how Alhaji Atiku Abubakar (who happens to be the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party) during his tenure as Vice-President of Nigeria between 1999 and 2007, colluded with his then boss, President Olusegun Obasanjo, to fleece the country and steal public funds using what he termed “Special Purpose Vehicles” (SPVs).

“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 and American University respectively. Now, we know from where the funds came. We hereby make available Certified True Copies of the affidavit sworn to and released to the public by the whistleblower, Mr. Michael Achimugu, giving graphic details of all that transpired including attached documents. Let us also play to you the voice recording he did of Atiku Abubakar. Note that he provided the time of the call, the phone number used and the emails immediately preceding the call.”

APC SUPPORT GROUPS RALLY ROUND PAUL CHUKWUMA

The members of the APC Support Groups family have thrown their weight behind a Frontline pillar of the All Progressives Congress in Anambra State, Sir Paul Chukwuma in the build up to the race for the Anambra State governorship election.
The Convener of the Amalgamated APC Support Groups Think Tank and leader of the Progressive Support Groups Forum, Dr. AK Peters made this declaration in Abuja on the heels of the fake news of the purported arrest and detaintion of Sir Paul Chukwuma by the Independent Corrupt Practices and related offences Commission ICPC.

The release reads in parts, ” Anambra State needs to be rescued from the clutches of bad governance and misrule of APGA and Sir Paul Chukwuma is right man for the job”.

Peters further stated that Paul Chukwuma is a grassroot man, a loyal party man, a motivator of the youths, a philanthropist, mobilizer, and a good Christian who has the fear of God and built the structure of the APC in Anambra State.
He emphasized that those who have suddenly realized that they have failed the people in the past are resorting to campaign of calumny and spreading fake news to smear the good name and character of the APC hopeful for the Anambra State governorship election.

The APC Support Groups have decided to drum support for only true party members like Sir Paul Chukwuma, the Statement said.

He called on all party members to work for him as he is the only person that has all it takes to defeat APGA and enthrone APC in the state.
