A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Kassim Afegbua, has called on the United States, US, government to immediately invite the party’s presidential aspirant, Atiku Abubakar, for questioning over his fraudulent activities.
Afegbua urged the US government to extradite Atiku to face corruption charges and made to face the full wrath of the law.
The former Atiku Abubakar presidential campaign organization’s spokesman anchored his call in the interest of justice and the rule of law.
In a statement he signed, the PDP chieftain said the former Vice President should visit the US and clear his name of all corruption charges rather than run for the Presidency.
Afegbua recalled how the US Congress indicted the PDP Presidential aspirant for money laundering alongside his ex-wife Jennifer.
According to Afegbua: “The entire report of the US Congress copiously indicted Abubakar on issues concerning money laundering. It will make judicious sense if the United States Government is able to treat this pending matter once and for all by way of extraditing the former Vice President to answer those lingering queries on financial impropriety.
“The United States Congress report on the investigation is too damning to be ignored. If we truly want to sustain the ethics of transparent leadership and positive governance. I am, therefore, calling on the US Government to commence the process of inviting Atiku to the United States to face those charges without further delay. I am aware of the threats to my life over my strong position against the aspiration of Abubakar and other northern aspirants who are running against the run of play.
"I am, therefore, using this opportunity to plead that the United States Government takes expedite action on this matter in the interest of the rule of law, justice and transparency.
“The earlier Abubakar is made to face the full wrath of the law, the better for our anti-corruption crusade and the best for our fledgling democracy.”
