Nigerians Think That I Am A Thief- Atiku

Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar said that he has never stolen a ‘kobo’ of the nation’s resources while he held leadership positions.

Atiku who made this disclosure on Monday during a facility tour of the new ultra-modern Yaliam Press Limited in Jabi area of Abuja said that he came rich as a result of hard work.

Atiku said that Nigerians believed that he was corrupt because they “always assume that a man cannot build himself without stealing.”

“It is sickening to continue to regurgitate allegations of corruption against me by people who have failed to come forward with a single shred of evidence of my misconduct while in office,” he said.

“People who are bereft of ideas about entrepreneurial spirit always think that everyone else is a thief just like them.

‘‘If Atiku is a thief merely because of his resourcefulness and successful investments, my political enemies should tell Nigerians the sources of their own stupendous wealth.”

The former vice president challenged anybody who had evidence that he stole a kobo while he was head of Customs or during his tenure as vice president ”to confront him with evidence or file a petition against him.”

“I will shock everyone because I believe that I will fight corruption like never before.”
